TeamTO has secured a five-series output deal, over a ten-year period, with UYoung in China.
The partnership, which follows UYoung’s recent acquisitions of the TeamTO animated comedies Mighty Mike and My Knight & Me, will kick off with the co-production of Jade Armor. The 26×26-minute series is a girl-skewed superhero action-adventure comedy centered on a normal teen who gains epic powers with her family’s ancient suit of jade.
Clara Yang of UYoung said, “TeamTO is one of the most interesting and innovative studios in the industry today, as we know from acquiring Mighty Mike and My Knight & Me. We are really looking forward to working together for many years to create more shows of this extraordinary quality, humor and perfection—starting with Jade Armor.”
“We are very pleased to be partnering with UYoung,” said TeamTO President Guillaume Hellouin. “As one of the largest kids companies in China today, UYoung have the relationships and expertise necessary to place our shows on the best platforms—in China, Hong Kong, Macau, and Singapore—both on television and licensing. We look forward to a long and rewarding partnership.”
