Production begins on the animated preschool series Miles From Tomorrowland, created by executive producer Sascha Paladino and directed by Paul Demeyer.
Production has begun on the animated series Miles From Tomorrowland, a space adventure for preschoolers. Slated to debut in 2015 on Disney Junior channels and programming blocks around the world, the series follows the outer space voyages of young adventurer Miles and his family.
"We hope this series will influence a child's interest in science and technology by introducing them at an early age to the exciting world of space exploration, how things work and what lies beyond the here and now,” said Nancy Kanter, Senior Vice President, Original Programming and General Manager, Disney Junior Worldwide.
Set in outer space, the series charts the missions of the Callisto family – 7-year-old Miles, big sister Loretta and their scientist parents Phoebe and Leo, who work for the Tomorrowland Transit Authority. Each episode features two 11-minute adventure-filled stories as Miles and his family explore strange new worlds, taking young viewers and their families on a journey that fuels kids' natural interest in the universe, and at the same time reminding them that what matters most is what lies closer to home – the family bond.
Miles From Tomorrowland is a production of Wild Canary in association with Disney Junior. Emmy-nominated Sascha Paladino (Henry Hugglemonster, Ni Hao, Kai-lan) is creator and executive producer and Emmy-nominated Paul Demeyer (Duckman, Rugrats in Paris) is director.
