TVO Joins Guru Studio and Home Plate Entertainment to Develop Wish Come True

Guru Studio and Home Plate Entertainment announce that TVO (Ontario’s public educational media organization) has joined the development team for Wish Come True, a new preschool property from art collective and creative studio FriendsWithYou.

Wish Come True is a CG-animated series made for kids ages 3-6 that combines fresh interactive elements with a dynamic graphic style. Its origin as an art concept created by FriendsWithYou has inspired an exciting, visually vibrant property. The distinctive design style is also manifested in a growing toy line which is currently sold internationally in specialty toy stores, as well as through Amazon.

Wish Come True revolves around a nine-year-old girl named True and her adventures in Rainbow City.  With her best friend, Bartleby the cat, True spends her days honing her skills as an adventurer extraordinaire. Whenever there’s a problem, it’s True who sets things right. She’s brave, athletic, inquisitive, and clever. But she has something else on her side too: the Wishes. The Wishes are a collection of tiny characters that have the ability to bestow powers. One has the power to make things grow.  Another can make True fly. Still others can make her run fast, bounce high, or shrink down to the size of an ant.
