Had its first showing on August 9, 2010 on Discovery Kids Latin America and May 9, 2011 premiered on TV Brazil. It premiered in Canada in Treehouse TV on August 20, 2011. It was financed with the laws of federal tax incentives, the Procult (BNDES) and the Audiovisual Sector Fund - FSA. The show My Big Big Friend centers around the friendships of three children, Yuri, Lili and Matt, each of whom has a "Big Big Friend" who is invisible to adults and other children but seen by all three friends. Founded in August 1998 in the city of Porto Alegre, in the south of Brasil, as ˜Laboratorio de Desenhos”, by Andres Lieban and his wife Marília Pirillo, 2DLab started in advertising, working for the local add agencies. The quality of their work was so impressive that soon they were getting calls from all over Brazil. Their portfolio grew, their experience grew, and so did their staff. Since 2003 the 2DLab attends in the Creative City of Rio de Janeiro.
