Lost in Oz Creators Team with Zodiak Kids for New Action-Adventure Show


Bureau of Magic Studios has inked a deal with Zodiak Kids for the new animated action-adventure comedy series Save the Legends!

The 26×22-minute action-adventure comedy for 6- to 9-year-olds and their families is about an amateur search and rescue team of young, totally-in-over-their-heads mythical creatures. Set in a secret and mysterious world of reimagined folklore, the show follows the supernatural kid crew, which consists of four Bairies (short for “Big and Hairy”) and their first official human friend, a young gadget whizz from South America named Alandra.

The two companies will co-produce Save the Legends!, with Zodiak Kids handling international broadcast sales. Zodiak Kids also handles international sales for the Emmy Award-winning Bureau of Magic-created series Lost in Oz.

Abram Makowka, executive producer and co-founder of the Bureau of Magic, said: “We grew up watching stories about unsuspecting young kids thrust into epic adventures. The stakes were always high. The camaraderie was always enviable. And the comedy was so quotable, we’re still referencing it today. That’s what we’re looking to capture with this series.”

Mark Warshaw, executive producer and co-founder of the Bureau of Magic, added: “Save the Legends! is an inclusive series designed to incorporate myths from any culture in the world and sets them inside a storytelling universe celebrating the magic of teamwork and the wonder of nature—wrapped up in show that’s big on heart and even bigger on humor.”

Benoit Di Sabatino, CEO at Zodiak Kids, and Delphine Dumont, senior VP of sales, acquisitions and co-productions, added: “Zodiak Kids is a huge fan of Bureau of Magic’s creative work. Like Lost in Oz, Save the Legends! is a high-quality comedy series with moving characters exploring an incredible universe. We are looking forward to working with the Bureau team to take the series out to the international market.”
