JellyTelly Coming Soon

vischer If you don’t follow Phil Vischer’s blog, you’re likely to miss the updates about what’s going on in his post-VeggieTales life.  And some of it is very interesting.

Believing in his ability to see what’s coming next, Vischer has pulled together funding to create a Christian Children’s television network online called “JellyTelly” that will have a subscription fee to watch the shows that he’s producing there.

They will feature all new material (no Bob or Larry) and will have shorts featuring missionaries and kids doing God’s work.

It sounds like an exciting adventure, and it should be going live very shortly.

Well… this is interesting!  A story ran in the London Sunday Times yesterday claiming Entertainment Rights was considering selling off Big Idea.  The story says new CEO Nick Phillips wants to reduce debt by "selling some of the less profitable areas of the group," implying, of course, that Big Idea is one of those "less profitable" areas.  I couldn’t find the original story, but here is a summary.

How much will they be willing to sell it for?  How many interested buyers will they find out there?  Stay tuned… this could get very interesting…
