Toronto, October 5, 2023 – Hop To It Productions is thrilled to announce its participation in MIPCOM 2023, where the company is nominated for a Content Innovation Award for queer slasher comedy Sloppy Jones.
Hop To It will also be presenting a slate of comedies and factual projects in development for kids supported by the Canada Media Fund and Ontario Creates. These include:
Northern Nightingales – A Live-Action Choir Dramedy Series for tweens and families.
This uplifting series follows the journey of 14-year-old singer and social media star Grace as she navigates life in a new country, reconnects with her family, makes friends IRL and discovers her true voice. We see the comedic Filipino immigrant POV of triple threat TV/TikTok star co-creator Isabel Kanaan (Abroad, Air Farce, Sloppy Jones) who moved to Canada as a teen.
“We believe Northern Nightingales is a unique and timely character-driven series that will resonate with tweens and families globally,” says Susan Nation, President, Hop To It Productions. “It combines relatable drama and comedy with the power of amazing music, highlighting underrepresented talent and perspectives in a heartwarming narrative.”
Petronie – A Preschool Animated Comedy 12 x 5 mins
This delightful preschool animated series follows the journey of the ultimate “Pet Protector”, 7 year-old Petronie, who moves from Africa to Canada and a new school. After a difficult start, she quickly finds friends when she starts an after-school Pet Club where #it’scooltobekind. It turns out the school pets can talk and they demand to be heard. The kids and pets laugh, solve problems, art, occasionally fart and always have fun together.
“We believe Petronie will capture the hearts of preschoolers and parents alike,” says Susan Nation. “The series encourages diversity, empathy, creativity, sustainability and stewardship, making it a must-watch for little ones.”

ABC Animal Adventures combines education and entertainment in a fun-filled preschool series designed to help young viewers learn their ABCs. Each episode features iconic live-action animal characters and kids in a game of “I Spy with an Eagle Eye”.
