CBS Adds ‘Pet Vet Dream Team’ to Saturday Morning Slate

CBS Also Extends Partnership with Litton Entertainment

CBS announced today that the new series “Pet Vet Dream Team” will join the three-hour (9 a.m. – 12 p.m. ET) “CBS Dream Team” Saturday morning block beginning Saturday, April 7. In addition, the network announced that it has extended its partnership with Litton Entertainment with a five-year renewal of the “CBS Dream Team” morning block through 2023. The lineup premiered in September 2013.
“Pet Vet Dream Team” is a live-action, half-hour television program designed to meet the educational and informational needs of children aged 13-16. It follows veterinarians Dr. Lisa Chimes and Dr. Andrew Marchevsky of the Small Animal Specialist Hospital (SASH), where they deal with compelling cases of infirm and injured pets. Viewers also see exotic animal expert Tim Faulkner in action at the Australian Reptile Park, where he cares for animals big and small, from crocodiles to koalas. The logline: Together, these three authorities race to cure their furry and feathered charges – educating viewers on a range of medical procedures and zoological practices along the way. As viewers catch a behind-the-scenes look at the veterinary profession, they also learn responsibility and empathy for animals of all kinds through the passionate work of the “Pet Vet Dream Team.”
