Paris-based production and distribution company GO-N Productions has started production on new animated TV series Tib & Tumtum.
The 52 x 13-minute series will be co-produced with TF1 in France as well as KiKA and HR for ARD in Germany.
Aimed at five- to eight-year-olds, Tib & Tumtum is adapted from a comic book by Flora Grimaldi and Nicolas Bannister. It follows a boy whose facial birthmark makes him stand out in his prehistoric village. What also makes Tib different is his relationship with his best friend, which happens to be a dinosaur.
The comedy-adventure series has presold to Canal+ (France), VRT (Belgium) and TFO (Canada), and will premiere at MIPCOM Junior later this year.
