Sonar Entertainment Enters Into First-Look Deal with Wildseed Studios
Sonar Entertainment has entered into a first-look deal with the award-winning UK-based Wildseed Studios with an agreement encompassing all Wildseed kids and family content. The partnership will also focus on developing and producing strategic and incentivized pipelines for creator driven properties from the UK and North America, with Sonar acting as worldwide distributor. The announcement was made today by Andrea Gorfolova, President, Kids, Family & Factual, Sonar Entertainment and Miles Bullough, Wildseed Studios.
Among the properties now in development as part of this deal are the BAFTA Short Form Award-winning animated series Lottie Bearshout, which follows the adventures of a small-town troublemaker as she explores the enchanted woods outside her cabin with her best friend Hunter, a rookie Forest Guardian; Tuff Pom a mixed media comedy about two cool Pomeranian brothers living large in the big city; and The Grim Repo Club, an animated comedy horror series about two best friends who have to stop the spread of a mysterious paranormal force they accidentally unleash into their sleepy coastal town.
Sonar and Wildseed previously teamed up on the hit series Counterfeit Cat, which the two companies co-produce for Disney XD and Teletoon and Sonar distributes worldwide. Counterfeit Cat follows the adventures and friendship shared by Max, a lazy, fat, fluffy, yellow pampered housecat and Gark, a small blue alien in a purple cat costume who has crashed his spaceship into the house where Max lives.
“Our collaboration with Wildseed has been incredibly rewarding and we are thrilled to expand our relationship with this new deal,” said Gorfolova. “They are one of the most creative, inventive and visionary studios in the industry. Counterfeit Cat has already proven to be a huge winner. We know these additional properties now in development will be embraced by kids everywhere.”
“We are very excited about our new partnership with Sonar for our kids and family programming,” said Wildseed’s Bullough. “We love Sonar’s ambition and energy and the quality of the shows that they produce. We look forward to providing a pipeline of vibrant new properties for the impressive Sonar team.”
