UK-based Zodiak Kids Studios has secured a commission from France Televisions for the new CGI-animated preschool series Lilybuds.
The 52 x 11-minute series follows the adventures of a playful community of tiny magical gardeners known as Lilybuds. The fraternity of funny friends, each with a big personality, is united in purpose to tend to the extraordinary garden where they live while caring for all the animal creatures nearby.
Emmy-winning producer Eryk Casemiro (Rugrats, Poppy Cat) has developed the series for TV and will serve as executive producer for Zodiak Kids Studios.
Zodiak Kids, meanwhile, owns distribution and licensing rights for the property, which will have a strong digital presence with an online world being created in conjunction with the TV series.
