Spotlight: Sixteen South Rights


The animated series Odo, which follows the titular owl and aims to tackle the anxiety and depression that kids face today through a theme of self-belief, leads Sixteen South Rights’ slate for the first quarter.

“Being an owl and the fact that Odo has no gender stereotypes means that for international partners Odo can be dubbed with either a boy or a girl lead, and we believe that kids will love and learn from Odo’s adventures in Forrest Camp,” said Alexandros van Blanken, sales manager for Sixteen South Rights. Odo is slated to bow on KiKA and Channel 5’s Milkshake! in the fall.

Claude, a 2D-animated series for kids aged 4 to 6, centers on a small, helpful dog and best pal, Sir Bobblysock. “Claude is a very special hand-drawn 2D show that we produced for Disney Junior EMEA and Australia in 2018, and we look forward to continue selling into second windows and being able to bring Claude’s madcap adventures to a wider audience across the world in 2021,” said van Blanken.

Lily’s Driftwood Bay takes viewers along on adventures with 5-year-old Lily while telling stories based on social justice and responsibility.

“We feel extremely lucky and honored to be able to tell stories of hope to children across the world, and very much feel a sense of added responsibility as storytellers as so many kids and families are going through such unprecedented challenges presented by the pandemic,” said van Blanken.
