Leading kids’ entertainment specialist CAKE and TT Productions have partnered on a brand new CGI action-comedy, Treasure Trekkers, a 52 x 11’ series launching at MIPTV with five episodes.
Treasure Trekkers follows the intrepid adventures of three heroic mouse-sized adventurers, who are tasked with preserving and protecting the priceless treasures of the world. Mo, Mac and Mip embark on challenging quests unearthing rare and sometimes magical artifacts, whilst learning to navigate their differences and discovering that the most precious treasures – friendship, kindness and respect – are the ones that come from within.
“Treasure Trekkers has all the ingredients of an international hit series,” said Ed Galton, CCO & Managing Director at CAKE. “Cinematic visuals coupled with universal quest and adventure stories that will resonate with children everywhere.”
The show is inspired by the award-winning children’s book series Maurice’s Valises, by acclaimed photographer and author J.S. Friedman, who exec produces through his TT Prod. outfit alongside former LazyTown Entertainment exec Agust Ingason. The creative team also includes Oscar-nominated director Thierry Marchand (Oktapodi) and a multi award-winning writing team led by Andy Yerkes (Mama Mirabelle’s Home Movies) with TT Prod.’s Tenerife based B-Water Animation Studios handling the animation.
“We are very excited to work with CAKE,” commented Ingason. “I am certain this will allow us to achieve our mission of delivering empathy through entertainment and inspire kids around the world. This is best realized by creating a high-quality series full of adventure, humor and heart – or, as we call it, the treasures within.”
