LONDON: Mondo TV’s new live-action teen series Heidi, Bienvenida a Casa, adapted from the classic book by Johanna Spyri, is slated to begin airing on Nickelodeon Latinoamérica early next year.

Heidi, Bienvenida a Casa, which stars Chiara Francia (Patito Feo, Chica Vampiro), tells the story of a young girl who leaves her mountain home for the city. The 60×45-minute show, produced entirely in Argentina, was created by Argentinian author Marcela Citterio.

The special and very talented team behind this new production has brought the story up to date while retaining its universal appeal. I am sure it will be a big hit with Nickelodeon viewers and around the world.”
