Zodiak Kids Studios has inked a co-production agreement with Discovery Kids Latin America for a new 52 x 11 CG-animated series, Lilybuds. Centered on a group of funny little magical beings with big personalities who tend their extraordinary garden home while caring for local animals, the show’s broadcast partners are France Televisions and Legardere (for Tiji).
Eryk Casemiro has developed Lilybuds for TV and is executive producing for Zodiak Kids Studios, with editorial input from Discovery Kids Latin America. Kate Boutilier (Rugrats, Poppy Cat) serves as head writer and co-executive producer. Zodiak is handling distribution and licensing, and Discovery Consumer Products holds L&M rights for Latin America.
Lilybuds will be produced in France with “a leading 3D studio” to be announced. The producers are also planning a strong digital presence, with a robust online world being created in conjunction with the TV series.
