Seven Network".

Chris O'Mara, Network Head of Programming and Production for Seven said, "The Seven Network is proud to be co-producing such an innovative and exciting series as Bambaloo with The Jim Henson Company and Yoram Gross-EM.TV - two companies that are re
cognized around the world for their creativity and expertise in family entertainment".

Angus Fletcher, Geoff Watson and Seven's Lisa Fitzpatrick will be executive producers of Bambaloo. Mellie Buse will serve as Co-Executive Producer and creative advisor and Susan Oliver will be on-set producer.
