Paris-based distributor Federation Kids & Family is bringing a little Egyptian magic to a handful of new channels this year, including the BBC. The UK pubcaster has picked up live-action adventure series Theodosia, along with Quebecor (Canada), OSN (MENA), Dreamia (Portugal) and NPO (Netherlands).

This 26 x 26-minute co-pro from Germany’s ZDF Studios and Cottonwood Media in France targets eight- to 12-year-olds with stories about the teenage daughter of Egyptologists whose life is upended when she discovers an artifact that gives her magical powers. ZDF, Brazil’s Globo and HBO Max originally greenlit the series, which debuted in the US on HBO Max last month.

Salto (France) and France Télévisions have also picked up the show, which is based on a Robin LaFevers book series that launched in 2007 and spans four books.
