BES Animation’s Kitty is Not a Cat has been commissioned for a 52×11-minute second installment by Network Seven in Australia, where the show first premiered earlier this year.
Kitty is Not a Cat follows the adventures of a young girl who is living her life as if she is feline. The comedy series, which is meant for young viewers between the ages of 6 and 10, has been sold into 65 territories around the world. Jetpack Distribution is the global broadcast distribution partner, alongside UniCreative, which handles China.
Bruce Kane, the founder and director of BES Animation, remarked: “We are thrilled to be announcing a second series of Kitty is Not a Cat. We are proud to be working with best-in-class partners—Network Seven, Jetpack Distribution and UniCreative—to deliver a series of the highest quality whilst equally growing and building our distribution around the world. Series two of Kitty is Not a Cat sets the stage to build the show into its next stage of development—a consumer products and licensing program.”
Niki Hamilton, executive producer at Network Seven, added: “Kitty is Not a Cat is truly wonderful family entertainment that is proving to resonate with a worldwide audience. Seven believes Kitty has remarkable potential to be a successful children’s property and will continue to support BES Entertainment to produce an enduring brand.”
