MIPTV Spotlight: Zodiak Kids


Zodiak Kids is returning to MIPTV this year with a host of new animated and live-action kids offerings.

Several forms of mixed media, including puppets and live action—all set against an animated backdrop—create the quirky world of Townopolis, where Gluko, a bouncy jelly blob, and his best friend Lennon explore in Little Big Awesome. The Amazon original The Kicks, based on a book by Olympic gold medalist Alex Morgan, sees a young girl rise to the occasion and rally her losing soccer team as she tries to lead them to victory.

Also on Zodiak Kids’ slate is preschool property Lilybuds, a comedy that follows the adventures of a group of tiny magical gardeners. The show “has been a great success for us to date, and we are dedicated to bringing this lovely and enchanting preschool comedy to more audiences internationally,” says Delphine Dumont, Zodiak Kids’ senior VP of sales, acquisitions and co-productions. “As ever, we are passionate about our catalog, and with a number of new titles up our sleeve, we are looking forward to reconnecting with our buyers,” she adds.
