Ananey Series Picked Up by Portugal’s Biggs


Israel-based Ananey Studios has sold the broadcast rights for two of its original shows, It’s Shelly and Sky, to Biggs for Portugal, Angola, Mozambique and Cape Verde.

The kids’ sitcom It’s Shelly centers on the titular 14-year-old, who shows up at her father’s door in the big city hoping to become a stand-up comedian like him. Created by Hagit Bilia and Lior Kfir, it was originally broadcast on Teen Nick exclusively on the satellite channel yes in Israel.

Sky, originally commissioned for two seasons by Teen Nick Israel for the cable channel HOT and yes, follows an alien girl from a technologically advanced planet who accidentally crashes in a small town on Earth. While waiting to be rescued, she hides by transforming into the body of the most popular girl in high school in order to avoid being discovered. Season two is currently in pre-production. Sky was created by Giora Chamizer and Noa Pnini.

Biggs is a live-action channel targeting kids and teenagers. The shows will be broadcast in their original versions with Portuguese subtitles.
