Apple Makes Deal with DHX Media for New PEANUTS Content

Apple has made a deal with DHX Media to produce new "Peanuts" content, according to Variety. The content, based on the characters created by Charles M. Schulz, will be produced for Apple's upcoming streaming service.

DHX and its subsidiary, Peanuts Worldwide, will develop and produce original series, specials and shorts.

As part of the partnership, DHX will produce original short-form STEM content that will be exclusive to Apple featuring astronaut Snoopy. Peanuts Worldwide and NASA recently signed an agreement that is designed to inspire a passion for space exploration and the STEM fields among the next generation of students.

Schulz debuted the characters in 1950, when the "Peanuts" comic strip was launched in seven newspapers. That comic strip grew into a media EMPIRE that now encompasses animated specials, series, and films as well as merchandise and amusement park attractions. Beloved characters include Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus, Sally, and Woodstock.
