Studio 100 Group & T&B Media Global Align for FriendZSpace


Studio 100 Group has partnered with T&B Media Global for the new CGI-animated comedy-adventure series FriendZSpace.

T&B Media Global and Flying Bark Productions will co-produce FriendZSpace, a series that follows three human kids who are dedicated to making friends with young aliens who are scattered all around the universe. Studio 100 Media has secured worldwide distribution rights (excluding Thailand) for all audiovisual and the L&M exploitation rights for the show, which it will be presenting as a highlight at this year’s MIPCOM Rendezvous Cannes.

Created by Dan Clark and Oscar Covar, the first season of FriendZSpace is set for delivery in 2021.

Jwanwat “Dr. Tan” Ahriyavraromp, founder and CEO at T&B Media Global, said: “Every new friend is a new window into a world totally unknown to us. It is my hope that FriendZSpace will show our young viewers how to connect with the wonderful tapestry of humanity that we share this planet with.”

Dan Clark, executive producer and co-creator of FriendZSpace, said: “FriendZSpace is about three human kids traveling from planet to planet for the sole purpose of befriending dozens of funny and cool alien kids. The production itself is based across Thailand, Australia, Germany, Mexico, and the U.S., mirroring the series itself. Many cultures, much creativity, all working remotely (COVID-style), sharing a positive vision and, most importantly, making new friends!”

Barbara Stephen, CEO at Flying Bark Productions, said: “We are delighted to be setting off on this quirky space adventure with Dan, Oscar and the team at T&B! Wonderfully rich with vibrant characters and plenty of silliness, the often absurd encounters in FriendZSpace reveal much about the joy of discovering new friends in the most unlikely of places. We are proud to be co-producing this light-hearted comedy and an opportunity for escape in what is otherwise a challenging time for kids around the globe.”

Martin Krieger, CEO at Studio 100 Media/International, added: “Many shows circle around ‘having’ friends. With FriendZSpace the core of the show is how to find friends. It’s very easy to make friends with others who are just like you, but it’s so rewarding to make friends with completely unique people—even if they are aliens in all shapes and sizes. Making friends as the essence of the show means being open, showing kids that they should have fun exploring diverse perspectives on life, cultures, ideas and people. This is what enthused us about FriendZSpace, right from the very beginning. With such ingenious creators like Dan Clark and Oscar Covar, together with T&B Media Global and Flying Bark Productions, we are excited about FriendZSpace—a brand-new show that is literally reaching for the stars.”
