Studio 100 has partnered with Thailand’s T&B Media Global on its comedy-adventure series FriendZSpace. The Belgium-headquartered company will handle the global distribution (excluding Thailand) for the animated show as well as L&M rights. Studio 100′s production company Flying Bark joins the project as a co-producer alongside T&B.
Set for delivery in 2021, the first 52 x 11-minute season tracks three kids who make friends with young aliens scattered across universe. Targeting kids five to nine, the series was created by Dan Clark (Team Smithereen, Yo Gabba Gabba) and Oscar Covar (Team Smithereen, Tasty Tales of the Food Truckers).
The show will be presented at MIPCOM. Last year, FriendZSpace was also presented at MIP, with Shellhut Entertainment (a sister company of T&B) attached as a producer and Henson Independent Properties set to distribute. Studio 100 took over during re-negotiation for the upcoming series.
Last year head of Flying Bark Barbara Stephen took over as the CEO of content for Studio 100, while continuing in her role at the Sydney-based studio.
