Created by Kavaleer’s CEO Andrew Kavanagh and executive produced by its MD, Gary Timpson, Kiva Can Do! follows seven-year-old Kiva Kain” the world’s greatest kid-inventor. With her mechanically-minded best friend Saul Dunne, intrepid cardboard puppy Angus, and the encouragement of loving grandmother Nanni Praveena, Kiva sets out to assail the slopes of the highest mountains, dive to the bottom of the sea, and explore the furthest reaches of space in a quest for fun and friendship.

Kiva Can Do! is a charming series with positive pro-social stories that are characterized by warmth and cheerful fun that reflects the highly imaginative play patterns of children around the world,” said Brian Lacey, President, Lacey Ent. “Kiva is an especially aspirational character helping to encourage constructive personal development. In addition, the very affectionate relationship with grandmother Nanni helps to infuse an important and genuinely authentic trans-generational appeal to the series.”

The series was previously picked up by Lagardere TV for French-speaking EMEA TV (packaged through London’s Happy Audience). Kiva Can Do! Is funded in part by the Irish Film Board, the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland, the Section 481 tax credit, and national broadcaster RTE. The show was developed with the assistance of Creative Europe.
