Banijay Kids & Family has announced Warner Bros. Discovery Latin America as broadcast partner for its new CGI action-comedy, Shasha & Milo. The news follows Tencent Video’s pickup in China, with Zodiak Kids & Family France (a Banijay Kids & Family company) and South Korean studio, Pingo Entertainment, co-producing the series.
The 25 x 22’ and 12 x 2’ shorts show, aimed at 6/9-year-old children, features 12-year-olds Shasha and Milo as they juggle school and their home lives, along with their secret new role as the Crescent Island Guardians. Thanks to their power to transform between human, cat and a formidable hybrid form, they are tasked with protecting the island from evil cats and their plots to gain ultimate power…whilst navigating the daily complexities of pre-teen life.
Benoît Di Sabatino, CEO, Banijay Kids and Family says: “The show is a huge priority for us, with the potential to become a global brand, and key to that ambition is being able to reach global audiences with our broadcast partners. As always, Warner Bros. Discovery is brilliant to have on board, enabling us to bring the dazzling and gripping story of Shasha & Milo to a wide audience across Latin America.”
Soledad Yañez, Manager of Original Production for Kids and Family in Latin America, Warner Bros. Discovery says: “We are very excited about Shasha & Milo, the story and characters are engaging, animation is looking great and editorially, the show is fully in line with our brands positioning. Besides the potential of the show, having partners like Banijay Kids & Family has contributed to a strong and assertive joint work, that will bring very relevant content to our audience.”
Benoît di Sabatino, Gary Milne and Hee Seok Shin will executive produce, with Seul Gee Yoo as creative producer and co-directing with Hyeong Min Kim. Zodiak Kids and Family Distribution own international distribution rights to the series.
