Zodiak Kids is to bring the top selling Tiger Team book series to TV, following a deal with Tower 10, the Austrian production company founded by the children’s author, Thomas Brezina.
The deal will cover a string of co-productions between the newly formed production arm Zodiak Kids Studios and Tower 10, the first of which will be Tiger Team.
The book follows three central characters – young detectives Leonie, Luke and Patrick – as they travel to exciting locations, solve baffling cases and face sinister felons.
The book series has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide, with over 100 editions published and translated into 24 languages.
"In Tower 10 we have found an ideal production partner to work with to create children’s series with worldwide appeal," said Jean-Philippe Randisi, CEO of Zodiak Kids. "Tiger Team has already achieved massive success with audiences across many countries and we look forward to extending the brand into other media."
Gerrie Villon, CEO of Tower 10, added: "We are delighted to be working with Zodiak Kids Studios. The unparalleled experience of Jean-Philippe Randisi, Michael Carrington and Eryk Casemiro makes Zodiak the perfect partners to bring the diverse panoply of Thomas Brezina’s hit creations to TV audiences."
