Superprod Inks Co-Pro Deal with Atmosphere Media


Superprod has signed a co-production agreement with Atmosphere Media for six animated children’s series over the next three years.

Production will kick off this month on Joker Joe, a 3D comedy based on the hit comic books by Thierry Copée. The other co-pros are the adventure series Osmond, the preschool show Anna & Froga, the action comedy My Spooky Family, the adventure series Octopus’s Garden and a new project titled Kid Paddle.

All six shows will be produced at Superprod in France and Digital Graphics Studios in Belgium, with work also done at Atmosphere Media in Germany. Superprod and Atmosphere Media will represent French- and German-speaking rights, respectively, while Superights is handling international sales outside of Benelux.

Peter Voelkle, founder of Atmosphere Media and co-CEO of Digital Graphics, said: “When I set up Atmosphere Media earlier this year, we scanned the market and defined who we would like to work together with. Superprod moved very quickly to the top of our list. I am extremely pleased that today, only a few months later, we signed this significant collaboration. Superprod is an incredibly creative and fast-growing company and produces great work. This is a great fit. Atmosphere Media and Digital Graphics will contribute a lot to the partnership, and each of the projects is completely unique. Together we will produce six fantastic series, and each one of them will be different and amazing.”

Clément Calvet and Jérémie Fajner, founders of Superprod, noted: “We are proud to team up with Atmosphere Media and Digital Graphics. The impressive track record of Peter Voelkle and his team will greatly contribute to our shows. Germany and Belgium have always been key territories for us and an audience we cherish. Our partnership with Atmosphere Media is a major step and will speed up the launch of those in-house developed productions, three of which already have major French and international broadcasters attached.”
