Germany’s ZDF gets Ready For This

Following in the footstep of Dance Academy, the Aussie series will bow on KiKA later this year.
May 20, 2016

German pubcaster ZDF has acquired Australian live-action children’s drama Ready For This, which will air later this year on free-to-air kids channel KiKA.

The series follows six equally talented but different Indigenous kids who travel to Sydney to realize their dreams. It’s produced by Werner Film Productions, the creator of Dance Academy, which currently airs in more than 160 countries around the world—including in Germany on ZDF.

Originally commissioned for ABC3 Australia last year, Ready For This also has Blackfella Films on-board as a producer, and is distributed worldwide by the Australian Children’s Television Foundation (ACTF).
