After 46 years, has Sesame Street sold out?? According to an article on Newsweek, the children’s show will now be aired on HBO and episodes will only be made available to PBS after 9 months.
I’m scared! Really scared! I do understand that it is expensive to produce a high quality children’s show. But its independence and non-profit objective is what has made the show what it is… one of the best damn children’s show in the world!
Apparently, in a statement by HBO, Sesame Street co-creator, Joan Ganz Cooney, has “long admired the creative work of HBO.”
Let’s just wait and see how the new episodes are going to look like. SIGH!
