Emmy Award-winning French toon production and distribution label Dandelooo has inked a deal with pubcaster France Télévisions for the award-winning Spanish 2D animated series Jasmine & Jambo.
Aimed at both preschoolers and parents, Jasmine & Jambo is a 27-episode series produced by Barcelona-based company Teidees and Catalan broadcaster Televisió de Catalunya, bursting with musical notes and humour.
Directed by Teidees co-founder Silvia Cortés, the show won Best International Series at the Festival Ecran Jeunesse and was nominated for the Quality in Children’s TV Worldwide award at the Prix Jeunesse International.
Ensuring a premium broadcasting platform, Jasmine & Jambo will be part of France Télévisions children and family programming, available first on streamer Okko from Fete de la Musique – Music Day – on June 21st in France.
Education networks TFO and Knowledge are also on board to bring Canadian children closer to the music series. RTS bought it in Switzerland, Arte Editions in France and UR in Sweden.
On the series, Jasmine and Jambo are two friends who share a passion for music. They love music so much that everything they do is related to it. And they live in the perfect place: Soundland, a surreal land where music rules.
Dandelooo has started production on the second season of the series, which is expected to be available in the last quarter of this year.
“We are delighted to see that this wonderful and magical series, which is dedicated to music in a fun way, is already winning the hearts of buyers around the world,” said Emmanuèle Pétry Sirvin, co-founder of Dandelooo, in a statement.
Dandelooo’s productions include the hybrid preschool series The Treehouse Stories, with three seasons on air and a fourth in production, as well as two feature films that won an International Emmy Kids Award in 2017, and the series Chico Chica Boumba, which was commissioned by became M6 and the animated feature film “Houdini”.
The Paris-based animation house has just licensed TV show Mum Is Pouring Rain, winner of a Jury Prize for a TV Special at Annecy Animation Festival in 2021, to Canal Plus and Stinky Dog to France Télévisions and Catalonia TV3.
