Cyber Group Studios is set to develop the new series Precious Moments, based on the gift industry brand of the same name.
Created by Scott and Julie Stewart (Kate & Mim-Mim), Precious Moments will consist of 52 episodes along with four 30- to 60-minute holiday specials. The series will underscore the brand’s core values of loving, caring, sharing and kindness through stories that emphasize sharing feelings, overcoming fears and anxieties and more.
Precious Moments will follow the adventures of 8-year-old Hope and her pet hamster Sammy as they work together to make the children of Heartspring’s precious moments come true.
The brand, known for its collectible porcelain figurines with teardrop-shaped eyes that celebrate milestones, has been a best-selling range in the gift business for over four decades. This is the first time the brand is getting a series treatment.
“Precious Moments embodies values that have been embraced and celebrated by families for generations,” said Pierre Sissmann, chairman and CEO of Cyber Group Studios, and Karen K. Miller, president and CEO of Cyber Group Studios USA. “After a very challenging year for all of us, we have a wonderful opportunity to create a series that delivers magical and heartwarming moments with endearing characters who will bring so much joy to viewers of all ages around the world.”
“We are thrilled to be working with Cyber Group Studios and a team of thoughtful writers and artists to bring the Precious Moments brand to a new generation of children,” said Shehnaz Safiuddin, VP of product and marketing at Precious Moments, Inc. “Our updated art style and entertainment content are sure to captivate young audiences while fostering feelings of nostalgia among parents and grandparents.”
