Cyber Group Studios & Splash Entertainment Join Forces for CyberSplash


Cyber Group Studios and Splash Entertainment have aligned to form CyberSplash Entertainment, which will produce animated series and feature films for kids and families worldwide.

The new company will be based in Paris. Cyber Group and Splash will continue to work independently as well.

CyberSplash’s debut project, Family Rocks, is a preschool series about the first modern family of the Stone Age. The 78×7-minute digital cutout show is a co-production with Israel-based Ananey Studios (Spyders, Greenhouse Academy, Craft Party). The series is set to premiere in 2024.

“We are delighted to join forces with our longtime friend Mike Young and his very talented team at Splash Entertainment to develop fresh, family-friendly content for audiences around the globe,” said Pierre Sissmann, chairman and CEO of Cyber Group Studios worldwide and chairman of CyberSplash.

Karen Miller, president and CEO of Cyber Group Studios USA, added, “We’re very much looking forward to the premiere of Family Rocks, which we know will be a big hit with viewers everywhere.”

“Film and animation production is a flourishing international business. We are delighted that the exciting new CyberSplash partnership with Pierre, Dominique (Bourse, chief operating officer), Karen, and the highly-successful Cyber Group team will provide clients and audiences with shows that are creative and entertaining for worldwide audiences,” said Mike Young, founder and chairman of Splash Entertainment.

Family Rocks celebrates the notion of a ‘family’ in a quirky and unexpected way. This show is the cornerstone of Ananey’s slate of animated projects, and we couldn’t be more excited about this amazing partnership with CyberSplash,” said Gili Dolev, head of animation development at Ananey and director and creator of the series.

Family Rocks was created and directed by Dolev, a Daytime Emmy Award-nominated director and BAFTA- and Annie-nominated showrunner and director (Cocomelon, Zack and Quack, Powerbirds, Nella the Princess Knight). The series is written by Dolev and Jacqueline Moody (Gigantosaurus, 101 Dalmatian Street, Bob the Builder).
