Anderson Entertainment and Tiny Giants are teaming up to redevelop the 1983 British children’s sci-fi series Terrahawks.
The original series, co-created by Gerry Anderson (Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet, Space:1999), centered on the adventures of a task force as it protected Earth against extraterrestrial androids and aliens led by Zelda. Titled Kate Kestrel and the Terrahawks, the new show follows Kate Kestrel as she climbs the ranks of the Terrahawks organization and defends the planet from an alien invasion.
Jamie Anderson, managing director of Anderson Entertainment, said: “Terrahawks has always been one of my favorite Gerry Anderson series, and has an obsessive and dedicated cult following, with Zelda being one of the most regularly mentioned ’80s kids TV characters online. I’m thrilled to be working with Tiny Giants on reimagining the series to entertain, inspire and excite a whole new generation, as the original series did over three decades ago.”
Stu Gamble, CEO and founder of Tiny Giants, added: “When I was a kid, Zelda scared the living daylights out of me. We can’t wait to work with the legacy and heritage of the world co-created by Gerry Anderson in bringing Terrahawks to a brand-new audience with deep, rich characters and world-building that can pull you in and not let you go.”
