Thunderbirds Are Go Set for Storytelling Game App


ITV Studios Global Entertainment (ITVS GE) has teamed up with Kuato Studios for a storytelling game application based on the hit adventure series Thunderbirds Are Go.

The app is slated to become available on iOS and Android devices early next year. Thunderbirds Are Go is produced by ITV Studios and Pukeko Pictures in association with Weta Workshop. The show has been broadcast in more than 40 markets around the globe and has more than 85 L&M partners spanning various categories.

“As a best-in-class U.K.-based studio, Kuato is a perfect fit for Thunderbirds Are Go and we are thrilled to be working with them on this exciting project,” said Steve Green, the executive VP of kids’ content and distribution at ITVS GE. “As we’ve seen from the standout success of Parker’s Driving Challenge, fans of Thunderbirds Are Go welcome additional content and alternative ways to experience the series, particularly in the form of digital games. With new episodes of the show airing on CITV this autumn, the launch of this app will be a complementary addition to the show and our licensing program.”

Mark Horneff, the managing director of Kuato Studios, added: “Kuato Studios are delighted to be working with ITV on this exciting new adaptation of Thunderbirds Are Go. With its beloved characters, thrilling adventure and quality storytelling, Thunderbirds Are Go is a truly iconic show and a perfect addition to our Tales Maker series.”
