1001-nights-150-v2

Canadian indie shop Big Bad Boo’s new animated series 1001 Nights was the most-watched show at the MIP Junior market this weekend. Loosely based on the classic Middle Eastern fairy tale anthology, the traditionally animated show follows the adventures of the legendary cast of characters, including Ali Baba, Aladdin and Sinbad, and narrated by the clever princess Shahrzad. Targeting the 6- to 11-year-old audience, a second season of the 26 x 11 package is currently in production. (For more info, visit www.1001nightshow.com).
