Australian animation studio BES Animation is partnering with Jetpack Distribution to take its new series Kitty is Not a Cat global. The deal sees London-based Jetpack acquiring international distribution rights for the 52 x 12-minutes series (excluding Asia Pacific).
BES Animation will produce exclusive online content as part of the agreement. The studio will create eight x 90-second music videos, 15 x two-minute live-action dance classes and 52 x one-minute stand-alone interstitials.
Kitty is Not a Cat revolves around a group of stray cats as they take care of a little girl in an orange cat suit named Kitty. The series was conceived and developed at BES and will be produced at its Melbourne studio. Kitty is Not a Cat will be presented at MIP Jr. and MIPCOM next month.
Earlier this year, Jetpack inked a global distribution deal for the new girl-skewing 2D-animated comedy series The Sisters.
