Seasons one and two of Almost Never, a live-action series about a boy band called The Wonderland, are on Dynamic Television’s kids’ content slate at MIPCOM.
“Not since The Monkees has a scripted television series launched a boy band from the small screen into the mainstream,” says Dan March, managing partner at Dynamic Television.
Almost Never follows as The Wonderland is defeated in the finale of a popular talent-competition show to Girls Here First, losing out on a record deal, instant fame and their manager Sasha Small. Can they prove Sasha wrong and deliver a hit and earn success on their own? “The band uses its exploding fan base on social media to drive audiences to the show, proving a unique marketing platform to reach kids where they are most active,” says March.
He adds, “Our program strategy is quality over quantity, and with Almost Never, we believe we have the number one live-action kids’ series in the world.”
A psychotic bully named Mike, charismatic and dangerous, tortures the residents of his small rural town in the Dynamic Television highlight Deliver Us. When a boy dies in an accident involving Mike, a group that includes the boy’s father goes down a dangerous path as they try to get rid of him. The Sommerdahl Murders, based on Anna Grue’s novels, sees detective duo Dan Sommerdahl and Fleming Torp investigate a new murder case each episode. In Vagrant Queen, child queen Elida becomes an orphaned outcast, scavenging the galaxy as she keeps out of reach of her enemies before new information takes her back to the kingdom to face her foe.
March says, “We couldn’t be more excited for this slate of new drama, all of which we are very passionate about. Each of these new series brings masterful storytelling that is easily marketed to and accessible by a very broad audience.”
