Paris-based Technicolor Animation Productions has form a network of partnerships with industry-leading companies for its new original animated series, Team DroniX. France Télévisions and Gloob (Brazil) will produce the 26 x 22 minute show with Technicolor, while Silverlit has signed on as worldwide master toy partner, and PGS will spearhead all global distribution, licensing and merchandising activities.
“As the leading worldwide manufacturer of drones, we have been amazed by the creative development of Team DroniX and are excited to join this adventure,” said Guillaume Coulaud, Marketing Director at Silverlit. “As many projects have been introduced to us in recent months, Team DroniX stands out with its compelling characters, sense of fun, storytelling and overall design. We look forward to developing an incredible universe of toys for children to engage with the brand worldwide.”
Team DroniX relates the adventures of three drone enthusiasts: pilot Buck Roquette, designer Tim Chessmat and engineer Vicky Risk, who meet in the prestigious Hawkings Academy, the mecca of everything high-tech. Together, they build a one-of-a-kind drone, DroniX, competing against fellow student teams and garnering envy from a few evil-intentioned individuals. The trio’s lives are full of action, fun, racing and high-stakes spy missions.
“We’re thrilled to introduce this original show with all of the outstanding partners that have been supporting Team DroniX’s vision since inception,” said Sandrine Nguyen, Managing Director of Technicolor.
“We’re always looking for content that mixes adventure with other interesting elements, and Team DroniX is the perfect vehicle to offer boys and girls alike the chance to embark on thrilling adventures with Buck, Tim and Vicky—modern, diverse characters our audiences will care about and relate to—amidst the elaborate high-tech universe of drones,” added Pierre Siracusa, Director of Animation, France Télévisions.
