Zodiak Kids Studios is gearing up to dig deep into the tween experience with a new interactive drama series called The Secret Life of Boys that has been commissioned by CBBC and ABC3 Australia.
Production will be handled by The Foundation in the UK, and the series is designed for cross-platform engagement, with 25 x five-minute segments available on CBBC’s and AB3′s various online and mobile services, and a 5 x 30-minute series designed for television broadcast.
The Secret Life of Boys focuses on an 11-year-old girl spending the summer holidays with her male cousins, following along as the tweens and teens try to make sense of each other’s unpredictable (and often comical) habits and behavior.
The series was created as an original sitcom by Anthony Q. Farrell (The Office, The Thundermans) and has been co-developed as an interactive comedy by Zodiak Kids and Zodiak Media’s head of multiplatform, Ben Freeman.
Zodiak Kids owns the worldwide rights to The Secret Life of Boys.
