Superights to Distribute The Horn Quartet


PARIS: Superights has come on board to distribute French studio Vivement Lundi!’s preschool property The Horn Quartet.

The half-hour program is based on books by Yves Cotten and adapted by Nathalie Dargent (Lulu Vroumette, Crafty Kids Club). The Horn Quartet follows four cows that take a trip to the beach and discover a world of freedom beyond their meadow. Superights will also distribute the special as a 10×3-minute edutainment web series that uses 2D animation and is presented in a documentary-style format.

The Horn Quartet is directed by Benjamin Botella (Welcome to Bric-a-Broc) with the participation of CANAL+ and France 3 Bretagne. The concept for the special was introduced at Cartoon Forum last September. The web series will be directed by Céline Dréan (Tell Me Dimitri).

Morgann Favennec, the deputy managing director in charge of international sales and acquisitions at Superights, said: “We feel very happy to bring this animated road movie for preschool and family audiences to the international market. Not only are the characters very endearing but we believe the premise will find an echo around the globe. We love the unique concept of mixing genres, with fun (special) and educational content (web series), animation and hybrid content.”
