Sixteen South Originals Preps Two New Titles


Sixteen South Originals has added two new series to its development slate—Ivory Towers and Spaghetti Sisters.

An original preschool 2D-animated series written by Stephen Coulter, Ivory Towers celebrates aging and the value of intergenerational relationships. Set in a home for elderly animals, it follows 4-year-old elephant Erin’s visits to her Grandpa as she hears amazing stories from the home’s residents and makes new memories with them.

Spaghetti Sisters is an original 2D-animated series for kids aged 7 to 11, written by Katie Lyons. It centers on Fiona and Flavia Fusilli and their efforts to revive their family’s failing pasta restaurant. Located in a secluded and sparsely populated mountain valley, the restaurant is practically broke. It’s up to the two sisters to put it back on the map, while also serving some very unusual customers and dealing with a rival restaurateur.

Colin Williams, creative director of Sixteen South, said: “I’m incredibly excited about our latest shows—they’re each unique with lots of comedy and heart. Ivory Towers is a funny, fresh and lovely show celebrating the precious bond between grandchildren and their grandparents. And Spaghetti Sisters takes our work in a new direction, a binge-worthy series with the vibes of Twin Peaks meets Gravity Falls. But the reason I’m most excited about them is because they were each written by Stephen and Katie, my wonderful development producers. The opportunity to help them bring their ideas to life is a real treat and I couldn’t be more proud of them and these new shows.”
