SLR Begins Production On Detective Series Lexi & Lottie


SYDNEY: SLR Productions has teamed up with Telegael, Super RTL, ZDF Enterprises and Network Ten for Lexi & Lottie, a new animated detective comedy series that is now in production.

Lexi & Lottie will follow the adventures of 12-year-old identical twin sisters who work together to solve mysteries in their country town of Appleton and its Animal Park. The 26×22-minute show, meant for children between the ages of 6 and 9, was created in-house at SLR Productions. It was developed last year with Super RTL and the Australian Children’s Television Foundation providing scripting assistance.

Suzanne Ryan, executive producer and CEO of SLR Productions, said: “Telegael, Super RTL, ZDF Enterprises and Network Ten are always exceptional partners and I am thrilled to be making this show with them. Lexi & Lottie is a fantastic series with great comedic super-sleuth fun that will leave its audience looking forward to the next case to crack with our detective duo.”

Paul Cummins, CEO of Telegael, noted: “Suzanne Ryan and her team at SLR Productions have an amazing ability to create great shows which engage, inspire and entertain. She has done it again with this fun series Lexi & Lottie. Telegael is delighted to partner with Suzanne, her excellent team and with our valued partners Super RTL, ZDF Enterprises and Network Ten to bring Lexi & Lottie to children’s audiences all around the world.”

Carsten Göttel, program director at Super RTL, stated: “We are delighted to see Lexi & Lottie coming to life. The strong twin girls are a great addition to our character portfolio and the exciting detective adventures build on the success of The Skinner Boys, which we also partnered on with SLR Productions and ZDF Enterprises. It is a pleasure to continue this fruitful collaboration.”

Arne Lohmann, VP of ZDFE.junior at ZDF Enterprises, commented: “This original concept by SLR Productions convinced me from the first moment on that kids all over the world will fall for Lexi and Lottie and their comedic super-sleuth adventures. We are thrilled to work with SLR Productions after our previous successful co-productions The Skinner Boys, Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs and Sam Fox: Extreme Adventures.”

Cherrie Bottger, Network Ten’s head of children’s programming, added: “Network Ten is thrilled to once again team up with Suzanne Ryan and the SLR Productions team to bring to our young Australian audience this animated detective comedy, Lexi & Lottie. With their special twin powers, these curious 12-year-old sisters waste no time getting into the action creating a background of entertaining adventure, fun, mystery-solving and mayhem.”
