Jetpack Adds Botanical Comedy Flora to Slate


Jetpack Distribution has acquired the rights to the 2D animated botanical comedy children’s series Flora, which is produced by Brazil’s Birdo Studios.

Flora is a comedy show about growing up in the botanical world, where becoming an adult may take centuries. The protagonist is a small seed who believes she can grow into any plant she wants and is determined to prove that to everyone, using all the amazing plant skills out there.

The 52×11-minute animated show targets 4- to 7-year-olds. The series is currently in development, and Jetpack is looking for presales and co-production partners.

Jetpack Distribution’s CEO, Dominic Gardiner, said: “Flora is such a brilliant addition to our preschool lineup for MIFA 2022. The show features outstanding design of a unique world. It’s fun and relatable and teaches kids about self-discovery, and the various emotions encountered growing up. We are very excited to be working with the hugely talented and internationally recognized Birdo Studios.”

Paulo Muppet, executive producer and partner at Birdo Studios, said: “Jetpack Distribution has been an amazing partner for us for many years, and we are super excited to join forces with them in the development stage of Flora. Their deep knowledge of the animation landscape will help us reach new heights with our content, and, above all, their team is a joy to work with!”
