SESAME STREET TO DEBUT IN AFGHANISTAN
ON TOLO TV and LEMAR TV

Local Co-production, Baghch-e-Simsim, to Feature Live Action Films and Segments with World-Beloved Elmo, Grover and the Sesame Friends


(New York, NY and Kabul, Afghanistan, November 30, 2011) — Sesame Workshop, the non-profit educational organization behind Sesame Street, in partnership with TOLO TV and LEMAR TV stations, have produced Baghch-e-Simsim, a brand new children’s television series featuring locally produced live action films and the Muppets from Sesame Street, to engage and help educate the young children of Afghanistan. While the under-five population of Afghanistan numbers nearly five million, only a small percentage of children are served by Kodakistans (the country’s kindergarten system).  Designed to meet this need for early education, the 26 half-hour series of Baghch-e-Simsim, produced in consultation with Afghanistan’s Ministry of Education, will be broadcast in both Dari and Pashto languages and premieres December 1, 2011. Baghch-e-Simsim will be broadcast on TOLO TV every Thursday through Sunday at 4PM as well as on LEMAR TV every Thursday and Friday at 5PM and Saturdays and Sundays at 3:30PM.
