Premium kids content producer Cottonwood Media and leading Israeli production house Ananey Studios, a Paramount company , have joined forces to co-produce the brand new CGI animated bridge kids series, FAIRY EXPRESS.
Based on an original concept by Emmy and BAFTA nominated creator and director Gili Dolev (Zack and Quack, Nella the Princess Knight, Powerbirds), and co-creator & Head of Kids and Family, Ananey Studios, Shirley Oran (Craft Party, Hahamama).
The series is also executive produced by Gili Dolev and Shirley Oran, and produced by Cottonwood Media’s David Michel, Cécile Lauritano and Zoé Carrera Allaix.
FAIRY EXPRESS (52 x 11’) is a delightful CGI animated series that targets 4 – 6 year olds. Three entrepreneurial fairies, Charm, Pixie, and Wonder, have invented a special App named ‘Fairy Express’, to grant kids their wishes. An instant 21st Century magical service to those in need. Each day, the fairies fly to the charming coastal town of Wishington, where kids are eagerly waiting for them to grant their wish. Whether it’s a young dog walker who lost all ten dogs under his care, or a girl whose birthday invites were sent for the wrong day – solution is only a magic spell away. Or five of them…when the first spell doesn’t go as planned and backfires. But even when things go wrong, everyone knows that a little mess is all part of the magic.
Co-founders of Cottonwood Media, David Michel, Cécile Lauritano & Zoé Carrera Allaix said: “This marks a first-time partnership with Ananey, and it’s great to be collaborating on this enchanting production with such an inspiring creative team. FAIRY EXPRESS is one of those exquisite projects that will make kids smile, laugh, and pretty much give them a hug from the inside out.”
Federation Kids & Family will be handling worldwide distribution (outside of Israel) and is excited to be presenting to buyers for the first time at the upcoming MIPCOM.
Monica Levy, Head of Sales, Federation Kids & Family added: “We are so excited to launch this very modern tale of classic fairy tales, with very (very) cute "Fairies in Training!.”
Hila Pachter, Head of International Relations, Ananey Studios said: “We’re so happy to be partnering with our talented friends at Cottonwood Media on this sweet and charming new show and can’t wait to sprinkle magic on viewers everywhere.”
