Airside Andy, a new animated pre-school TV series, is making its debut to international buyers at MIPTV 2013 in Cannes.
It’s the latest property from former Chapman Entertainment MD and founder of Adrenalynn Entertainment Greg Lynn, who has previously worked on Fifi and the Flowertots, Roary the Racing Car, and Raa Raa the Noisy Little Lion.
Airside Andy is a series featuring 52 10-minute episodes that follows a team of ground-based airport vehicles and their enthusiastic leader Andy. It blends a mix of stop frame and CGI animation, and is being co-developed by Adrenalynn and Technicolor Digital Productions.
The multi-platform property is set to debut digitally this summer with a gaming app, eBook and website.
Executive Producer Greg Lynn said: “Over the last ten years I have produced four hugely successful shows and built brands which have entertained children all over the world.
"I am incredibly excited about Airside Andy, which is going to introduce children to the wonder and excitement of travel through striking visuals, fantastic characters and great storytelling. The idea is truly international, and I believe this will be my most successful show yet.”
Steven Wendland, Vice President of Animation at Technicolor, added: "Greg has a legacy of producing high quality, successful animated properties; and we are thrilled to collaborate with him to bring his vision of Airside Andy to life.
“This property has a global appeal that will resonate with kids everywhere, offering pure entertainment and fun, as well as a solid educational foundation.”
A statement read: "The property has an educational foundation firmly rooted in the STEM curriculum – Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. In particular the airport presents a context to promote early mathematical concepts like being behind or ahead of time, sequences, measuring and force.
