Ape Entertainment and Sesame Workshop in Negotiations to Create Educational Comics for Young Readers!



(SAN DIEGO, CA, October 13, 2011) – Ape Entertainment announced today that it is currently negotiating with Sesame Workshop for the right to produce a series of comic books featuring the cast of the beloved children's show Sesame Street.

Ape Entertainment hopes to work with Sesame Workshop to create a series of comic books that will be both educational and entertaining for young readers. Subject to successful negotiations, the comics will be produced in full color and available in printed editions as well as in digital editions that will be available through the Sesame Street store on Apple's iTunes in 2012.

"We are incredibly excited about our current negotiations with Sesame Workshop and the possibility of being able to bring their expertise in educating and entertaining children to comics," said Ape Entertainment COO Brent E. Erwin. He went on to say, "I love the idea of creating educational comics that will both teach and entertain children. And the possibility of getting to work with Elmo, Big Bird, Cookie Monster and Grover, well...that's just a dream come true."

Sesame Workshop is a nonprofit educational organization with the mission of making a meaningful difference in the lives of children worldwide by addressing their critical developmental needs. Sesame Workshop has been producing Sesame Street for over forty years.
