BRAND NEW PRESCHOOL SERIES PRODUCED BY TOONBOX ANIMATION STUDIO TO DEBUT ON JIM JAM AND YLE
The brand new 32 x 5 minute, 2D animated series has been picked up by global broadcaster, Jim Jam (Pan-Europe, Poland, Benelux, the Middle East and Africa) and Finland’s YLE, it was announced today.
Produced by Toonbox Animation Studio, Kit & Kate follows the adventures of two cute kittens who learn how to make good choices while having fun in their playroom. Each time they jump in their magical toy chest, their imaginations transform the playroom into colourful worlds where their games make them experience the consequences of good and bad choices. With the help of their parents, Kit & Kate always end up learning how to take the good decision, and find a happy ending to their journey.
The Kit & Kate series is part of a transmedia project including apps for tablets and mobile phones, physical and digital books plus online videos.
Commenting on today’s announcement, Frédéric Puech, VP Animation, Ankama Animations, said: “We are delighted to have secured leading broadcasters for Kit and Kate. This brand new animation is an exciting prospect and we look forward to working with leading platforms Jim Jam and YLE in as we introduce the Kit and Kate to pre-schoolers in these key territories.”
The series has already been picked up by EBS (South-Korea) for its TV channel, by ICFLIX for its SVOD platform in all MENA countries, and by The Walt Disney Company Australia for Disney Junior Australia & New Zealand. Some other deals are currently under discussion with broadcasters.
Ankama Animations is also looking for licensing partners for that IP in EMEA and APAC regions and will be presenting the new series at MIPTV.
