Saturday Animation Studio Develops Second Original IP


Saturday Animation Studio, a subsidiary of Digital Dimension Entertainment Group (DDEG), is in development on its second original children’s IP, Aiko and the Masters of Time.

Aiko and the Masters of Time is set in an age that has combined eras, resulting in samurai, cowboys, African warriors and Stone Age scavengers living together. Teenagers from separate factions must work together to save their world from evil forces. Cookbook Media will be presenting the new series to international buyers at MIPJunior.

The series is produced using DDEG’s proprietary real-time pipeline based on Epic Games’ Unreal Engine. It is co-created and co-developed by Guy Harvey, André Lavoie, Aaron Simpson, Fred Faubert and Louis-Simon Ménard.

“Kids around the world will be rooting for our heroes Aiko and Wyatt in this mind-bending, thought-provoking high-concept series that will deliver on all cylinders—action, adventure and sci-fi,” said Faubert, DDEG’s chief creative officer and showrunner. “Our real-time animation pipeline powered by Epic Game’s Unreal Engine, for which we have received prestigious grants, will allow us to bring the entire universe and characters to life across multiple dimensions.”

Cookbook Media will also be presenting Saturday Animation Studio’s first original IP, Chase and CATCH, at MIPJunior.
