Studio 100 & SeaBelievers Align For Kids’ Series


Studio 100 Group has teamed up with SeaBelievers for a new CGI animated eco-tainment children’s series.

The SeaBelievers series will provide a musical eco-adventure with original music for kids to sing and dance along to in each episode. The characters in the show problem-solve and take action around key environmental issues, each carrying a Magic Sand Dollar that ignites their unique superpowers. Studio 100 has acquired the worldwide distribution rights for the program (excluding Russia and CIS), as well as L&M exploitation. Studio 100 will present the show at MIPCOM Rendezvous Cannes 2020.

Aimed at children aged 4 to 7, the first 52×11-minute season of SeaBelievers will be ready for delivery in 2021. It is produced by Baboon Animation in the U.S., Telegael in Ireland and AnCartoon in China.

Brien Arone, SeaEO and founder of SeaBelievers, said: “Last year at MIPJunior we were looking for distributors who share the same vision, enthusiasm and commitment to our new genre and who are willing to bring SeaBelievers to children around the globe—with passion and expertise. SeaBelievers is the first kids’ eco-tainment show in the world that tells stories that will thematically matter and empower kids. It is so important to let kids know that they can change the world and that there are role models for that in real life, and in shows with authentic characters they really can relate to. We want kids to know that the SeaBelievers are at their side and will always believe in them. For that Studio 100 is the right partner for us, not only because they have the reputation, but their aspiration and personal commitment convinced us. Thus, to be able to implement the exploitation of the series and L&M with one dedicated team is the ideal partnership for us.”

Martin Krieger, CEO of Studio 100 Media / International, added: “SeaBelieversenthralled us right from the start. A series with such high-quality animation and detailed designs, combined with a strong message and the corresponding cosmos of values and real, informative educational content is exceptional—both from a content and L&M perspective. We are very happy with the trust that has been placed on us not only because SeaBelievers comes from the heart and its important message about the environment, but also because it’s about the future of this planet for our children. The devotion and energy with which the SeaBelievers team works on this important cause continues to impress us—their commitment is outstanding.”
