Famous animated pre-school show, “Tish Tash,” will soon be enjoyed by kids around the world after leading  kids’ entertainment specialist, CAKE, has linked a distribution deal with its producers Korea’s Studio Gale, Singapore’s August Media Holdings, UK’s Carrot Entertainment and Philippines’ Synergy88 Entertainment Media. 

“Tish Tash” tells the story of young and hugely-imaginative Tish, her bear family and larger-than-life imaginary friend, Tash. These special friends can create new worlds around themselves no matter what trouble they face. 

Jackeline Chua, Managing Director, Synergy 88 Entertainment Media, and Anthony Rivera, Executive Director, DTI-FTSC.

Family life is also the core of the said series. Both kids and parents will deeply identify with the stories. 

“We are very excited to be working with strong partners from around the world where collaboration has resulted in a truly global approach,” CAKE COO Ed Dalton said. 

Synergy88 COO and Managing Director Jackeline Chua also expressed her excitement over this landmark deal:

“We’re excited to see another show come to life and now distributed globally. It was a great collaboration with the other best global entertainment companies in the world.”

She also recounted how Synergy88’s participation in the government-sponsored outbound missions in Cannes from 2016-2018 had opened opportunities for global partnerships. 

Chua remarked, “We’re truly glad that DTI-Export Marketing Bureau and FTSC (DTI Foreign Trade Service Corps.) have been very active and supportive in promoting PH’s global presende in  the creative industry.”

DTI Secretary Ramon Lopez welcomes this development by saying, “We have been pushing for the promotion of the economic potential of our creative industry which is a high value-added sector and the country has a natural competitive edge in this area.”

DT-FTSC Executive Director Anthony Rivera also added, “We will continue to collaborate with the creative industry stakeholders and government partners to help promote and develop opportunities in the creative sectors such as in advertising, animation, film, game development and design among others. We hope to feature more of our creative capabilities and gain more

access in international markets for Philippine-made content.”

Aside from “Tish Tash,” Synergy88 also paved the way for the country’s first Filipino animated series “Barangay 143” that aired in free-to-air TV channel GMA7 in 2018. It made headlines once again last month as it premiered on srreaming giant Netflix and made it to the Top 10 Most-Watched titles for the week.
