Superights has signed on to handle distribution of Vivement Lundi!’s The Horn Quartet, which was pitched by the French studio at Cartoon Forum last September. The half-hour special is adapted from the books by Yves Cotten by screenwriter Nathalie Dargent (Lulu Vroumette, Crafty Kids Club, Grenadine & Peppermint) and director Benjamin Botella (Welcome to Bric-a-Broc.
The animated special follows four cows who, in the midst of a fun trip to the beach, discover freedom in an unknown world away from their quiet meadow. In the course of their odyssey, the bovine herd navigates new adventures, strange encounters, arguments and reconciliations that take them out of their comfort zone and remold them as an indomitable pack of friends, united and free.
To build on the world of the TV special, an edutainment 10 x 3 web series will bring preschool audiences more in-depth knowledge about the world of cows. This series will combine 2D animation and live-action documentary footage and is being directed by Celine Drean (Tell Me Dmitri).
The Horn Quartet is being produced with the participation of Canal+ and France 3 Bretagne.
