I knew Bondi Vet was being shown overseas but who knew that it’s won an award from the US Parents’ Choice Association (whoever that is)
Dr Chris wins prestigious US parents’ choice award two years in a row
Fred Media is proud to announce that Bondi Vet, (known in the US as Dr Chris: Pet Vet) has been given the US Parents’ Choice Foundation ‘Seal of Approval’ award for the second year in a row.
This is a significant boost for the show, currently screening on the CBS network in the US. The Parents’ Choice Foundation is the US’ oldest not-for-profit consumer organisation dedicated to quality children’s media.
Michael Aldrich, general manager of Fred Media, says the awards are highly regarded by the US networks. “They’re influential awards among the major networks, who are very focused on parents’ views, particularly in Dr Chris’ time slot.”
This is the second year in a row that Dr Chris: Pet Vet has been recognised with a seal of approval award. “I’d like to thank Litton Entertainment, our production partners in the US, as well as CBS, for their support in promoting the series,” Mike says.
The Parents’ Choice Approved Seals are given on the basis of the production, entertainment and human values they exemplify. This seal indicates a wholesome product that helps children enjoy developing physical, emotional, social or academic skills.
Litton Entertainment CEO Dave Morgan says it’s a special honour to be recognised by the Foundation. “These accolates are a tribute to our dedicated and passionate team of producers and talent,” he says. “They consistently produce the highest quality programs for America’s youth and their families.”
Bondi Vet, produced by WTFN Entertainment, has just commenced its eighth season on both Discovery UK and Network Ten Australia. Dr Chris: Pet Vet is currently showing season 3 on CBS
