KidsCo Acquires Sendokai Champions
International children’s channel KidsCo has licensed CG-animated series Sendokai Champions from media agent Nottingham Forest, according to a report by Kidscreen.
Co-produced by audio visual production company Kotoc and Spanish Television Corporation TVE, the series will bow fully dubbed on KidsCo’s new Syfy Kids programming block in October, as a first-run series across Central and Eastern Europe, South East Asia, South Africa, and parts of Sub-Saharan Africa.
Sendokai Champions follows the adventures of Zak, Cloe, Kiet and Fenzy, four 13-year-olds who have to save the Earth from an inter-dimensional invasion, led by the evil Zorn Marshal. To do this, the four friends must overcome their weaknesses, become warriors by learning the art of Sendokai and win the Grand Tournament of the Multiverse.
The Syfy Kids programming block recently launched exclusively on KidsCo, across Central and Eastern Europe in June, and South East Asia, South Africa and parts of Sub-Saharan Africa in July. The fully dubbed block airs at peak viewing times and targets kids aged 6-10. Key titles on the block include: Matt Hatter Chronicles, ZuZu & the Supernuffs, Z-Squad, The Future is Wild, Back to the Future and The Mummy.
