MIPTV Spotlight: Shaftesbury


CANNES: Two new animated series are being launched by Shaftesbury at MIPTV: Splashlings and Firsts.

Splashlings follows the adventures of four smart, fun-loving mermaids who are guardians of the sea. A collectible toy line from TPF Toys featuring a variety of merchandise based on the show is now exclusively available at Toys“R”Us. Firsts sees a group of friends travel through time to witness every amazing first in history.

The company is also showcasing the live-action show The Moblees, which Ryan St. Peters, the VP of kids and family, describes as “a fun, movement-focused preschool series.” Another highlight is Super Duper Deelia, an adventure series about a girl who discovers that she has superpowers on her 11th birthday.

“These series are universally engaging and appealing to global audiences, exploring many relatable themes,” says St. Peters.
