The Jim Henson Company, Ananey Team for The Season Keepers


The Jim Henson Company and Paramount’s Ananey Studios (Greenhouse Academy, Spell Keepers) have partnered to develop The Season Keepers, with Craig Bartlett (Dinosaur, Hey Arnold!) attached to write.

Inspired by Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, the animated series sees twins Lia and Ben find themselves in the middle of an epic battle between the seasons. When Lia discovers her gift for mediating between humans and the Nature Makers, she must harness her powers and solidify her bond with Ben to save her family and the world.

Lia and Ben end up in the middle of the battle when their parents’ divorce sends them to their grandmother’s small village for a spring holiday.

The Season Keepers is created and designed by Bosmat Agayoff (Where is Anne Frank?, Barbie Dreamtopia). Gili Dolevwill is attached to direct. Executive producers are Lisa Henson and Halle Stanford for The Jim Henson Company; Orly Atlas-Katz for Ananey Studios; Gili Doley; Hila Pachter; and Shirley Oran.

“From the minute Hila, Gili and Shirley shared with us Bosmat Agayoff’s gorgeous designs for her creation The Season Keepers, we knew this was the next fantasy world we wanted to explore at The Jim Henson Company,” said Stanford, president of television at The Jim Henson Company. “At its heart, The Season Keepers is about the healing of a family and of the natural world around them. And this series about climate hope is wrapped up in a luxurious, whimsical world filled with magical and never-before-seen creatures. To work with this extraordinary creative team from Israel is an honor. And then handing the story reins over to Craig Bartlett ensures this adventure will captivate kids for generations.”

Atlas-Katz, CEO of Ananey Paramount and executive VP of Paramount Israel, added, “We couldn’t be more excited about joining forces with the legendary Jim Henson Company, responsible for some of the most loved and known kids’ shows. In this modern-day animated fairytale, a breathtaking journey will intertwine magic, adventure and heart to inspire young viewers everywhere.”
