“At PBS KIDS we often hear from parents that they are looking for ways to build their kids' school readiness and life skills; with tools to help kids learn how to take turns, manage their feelings, and more, DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD plays an important role in meeting that need,” said Lesli Rotenberg, General Manager, Children’s Programming, PBS. “We know that families face a host of challenges when a new sibling arrives, so with the introduction of Daniel’s baby sister this August, we’re excited to offer kids and parents strategies that they can use when they experience the same issues as Daniel and his parents.”

“We’re delighted to present the second season of DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD on PBS KIDS and to introduce a wide range of topical themes, including smoothing the transition for preschoolers with a new sibling,” said Paul Siefken, Vice President, Broadcast and Digital Media, The Fred Rogers Company, producer of the series. “One of Fred Rogers’ key goals was to address the issues that affect families most, and we look forward to continuing to help preschoolers learn and grow with these adorable new episodes,” added Angela C. Santomero, Series Creator and Co-Executive Producer.

With the “Meet the New Baby” special and the episodes that follow, DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD shines a spotlight on a relevant topic for families and preschoolers everywhere. Inspired by the enduring wisdom of Fred Rogers, the shows tackle many of the important issues young children encounter with a new sibling – such as feeling left out, learning to share time and attention, and appreciating how fun a little sister (or brother) can be – with accompanying strategies that help preschoolers work through their feelings. “Meet the New Baby” debuts on PBS stations nationwide and on the PBS KIDS Video Player, the PBS KIDS Video App, Apple TV and PBS KIDS’ Roku channel on Monday, August 18.

Season 2 of DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD, the first original TV series from The Fred Rogers Company since MISTER ROGERS’ NEIGHBORHOOD, features 25 new episodes with a host of charming stories and catchy musical strategies that have become the show’s signature and helped it earn high marks among parents and preschoolers alike.

DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD was created by some of today’s pre-eminent innovators of quality children’s media. Angela C. Santomero of Out of the Blue Enterprises provided the creative vision for the new series. Santomero, Kevin Morrison of The Fred Rogers Company, and Vince Commisso of 9 Story Entertainment are the program’s executive producers. Each episode showcases two engaging stories starring four-year-old Daniel Tiger and his best friends, who invite viewers to come with them on fun adventures as they explore the colorful Neighborhood of Make-Believe. The innovative use of irresistible musical strategies reinforces the unique theme of every show, so that preschoolers and parents will want to sing along and incorporate them into their daily lives.

The animated series has garnered a host of prestigious awards, including most recently a 2014 Parent’s Choice Silver Award and 2014 Prix Jeunesse International Selection. The program, which airs daily on PBS KIDS, was the #1 children’s series among all kids’ TV competition in April 2014 for moms.* In addition, DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD has averaged more than 36 million video streams per month across all PBS KIDS platforms in 2014, making it the top streaming show on PBS KIDS.**
