Cartoon Network Australia adds Sam Fox to its lineup
Australia’s SLR Productions’ first live-action kids series, Sam Fox: Extreme Adventures, has been picked up by Cartoon Network Australia.
The 26 x 24-minute series, which is being produced in South Australia at South Australian Film Corporation studios, targets kids ages eight to 12 and will air on Cartoon Network after it premieres on Network 10. ZDF Enterprises will handle international distribution.
Sam Fox: Extreme Adventures was greenlit in July after backing from Network Ten, ZDF Enterprises, Screen Australia, South Australian Film Corporation and KOJO.
The new series is based on the bestselling books (pictured) by popular children’s author, Justin D’Ath. Sam Fox: Extreme Adventures is a comedy adventure following teenager Sam Fox as he journeys from oceans to jungles facing everything from killer sharks and man-eating leopards to tornadoes, volcanoes and scorpions.
