Fred Rogers Productions is excited to announce we are seeking new development partners as part of our New Neighbors, New Games initiative. This initiative aims to help developers who are new to public media craft an effective proposal, budget, and schedule for a game that is on-brand and has strong learning value. Experience making games for young children is helpful but not required. We’ve released two open requests for proposals (RFPs) and will host a series of webinars for guidance through the process starting February 12, 2024.

Interested or know of someone who might be? Sign up for the informational webinar series starting February 12, 2024 here or check out the request for proposals for Alma's Way or Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood.

FRP values the enrichment that results from working with partners having diverse experiences and backgrounds. Accordingly, studios owned by or staffed with members of traditionally underrepresented communities in the children’s media industry are encouraged to apply.




Fred Rogers Productions couldn't be more thrilled to share that Ellen Doherty, chief creative officer, and David Newell, who played Mr. McFeely on Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, have been inducted into the first-ever Children’s & Family Silver and Gold Circles respectively! The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences is honoring them for making an enduring contribution to the children’s television industry. Congratulations to both on this well-deserved recognition and thank you for your dedication to enriching the lives of children through your work!




Common Sense Media has named Odd Squad: Odd Beginnings as a Common Sense Selection for Families. The hour-long special kicked off the series' third season, featuring the newly-formed Odd Squad Mobile Unit. The new unit is a "team of kid agents who form a mobile unit response team tasked with investigating any and all odd happenings. To do so, they use math and science skills like units and means of measurement or simple machines as well as teamwork and strong problem-solving skills." The article mentions the special's focus on team-building and teamwork, as well as the concept of using math and science in everyday applications.

Read the full review on Common Sense Media's website. Watch Odd Squad weekdays on PBS KIDS.

Everyone at Fred Rogers Productions is devastated by the tragedy at Tree of Life synagogue in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood that Fred Rogers called home for many years. We offer our deepest condolences to those who lost loved ones and whose world has been upended.

The importance of community is even more evident at times of tragedy and though this terrible event took place in our home city of Pittsburgh, we know it also deeply affects our neighbors around the country and the world.


For more than two generations of Americans, The Fred Rogers Company has partnered with CPB and PBS to share what Fred Rogers called an “expression of care” for children and families through broadcast and digital media as well as neighborhood outreach. We stand firmly in support of continued federal funding for public media. In the nearly 50 years since Fred spoke on its behalf before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Communication, public broadcasting has provided countless hours of free, evidence-based educational content to millions of children, exploring topics like science, literacy, math, and the core social and emotional subjects that foster kindness, friendship, curiosity, and enthusiasm for learning.
