The animated series will roll out on the video platform next week on its own dedicated channel. Six episodes will be on the channel at launch.

Heyward, chairman and CEO of GBI said: “From its inception, SpacePOP has been recognised for the incredible opportunities it presents in taking a fresh and direct approach to reach and engage its intended audience.

“We’re premiering on YouTube primarily because of its popularity, as well as its forward-thinking approach to promotion.
