A KIND OF MAGIC (26x30), Xilam's new animated comedy series in which a bunch of maladjusted fairy tale characters find themselves catapulted from their magic kingdom into the real world, was rated the most popular series at MIPCOM Jr., attracting over 280 buyers.
Currently in production at Xilam's Paris-based animation studio, and due to debut in fall 2008 on France 3, the comedy has already been picked up by a raft of major broadcasters, including Disney Channel France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Asia and Latin America, as well as Mediaset (Italy) and ABC (Australia).
