Hartford, Conn., December 12, 2017 – On Monday, January 15, 2018, Connecticut Public Television (CPTV), will premiere a brand new one-hour movie from the multiple Emmy Award-winning series ODD SQUAD.

In ODD SQUAD: WORLD TURNED ODD, agents Oona, Olympia, and Otis accidentally change the past and undo every odd case Odd Squad ever solved.

Following the “odd” movie premiere, fans can stick around for a special sneak peek of PBS KIDS’ newest upcoming series, PINKALICIOUS & PETERRIFIC, which premieres February 19, 2018.

“We hear from Connecticut families often about what an impact ODD SQUAD has had on them, and how much they enjoy watching it together,” said Carol Sisco, Vice President/Station Manager, TV Programming & Acquisitions, CPTV. “With ODD SQUAD: WORLD TURNED ODD, we hope kids and parents in Connecticut continue to laugh and learn together as Agents Otis and Olympia use math and problem-solving to face their newest challenge.”
