APC Kids, the children’s entertainment arm of About Premium Content, has secured global TV rights (outside Russia and China) to Kid-E-Cats, a 52 x 5 animated series produced by Studio Metranom/Metrafilms for CTC in Russia. APC was instrumental in bringing the animation studio and broadcast partner together for the project, which is being executive produced by Nigel Pickard for APC.
Kid-E-Cats follows three kittens: Cookie, Pudding and kid sister Candy. The trio are forever ready to jump into action with endless enthusiasm and energy. Their imagination knows no bounds, and these kitties are capable of the most absurdly funny problem-solving suggestions. Through life’s little lessons, they learn to look before they leap — sometimes.
Ceri Barnes (Floogals, Postman Pat, Casper’s Scare School, Guess with Jess) serves as story editor for the series, and will work with writers and show creators Dmitry Vysotsky and Andrey Sikorsky. APC Kids will launch the show at MIPCOM, with partner and managing director Lionel Marty handling sales.
“Kid-E-Cats is an exciting new project for APC Kids,” said Marty. “The local version has won over audiences in Russia and we are looking forward to working with Nigel to create a version for children around the globe.”
