Hong Kong-based MediaLink Group will distribute Chinese animation studio’s new CG preschool show, set to launch in summer 2020.
Chinese animation studio Aola Animation has signed a pre-sales and distribution deal with Hong Kong-based distributor MediaLink Group for its new original CG preschool series, Kiki & Nuna.
The 104 x 6-minute show, currently in production with a summer, 2020 launch date, revolves around 2 animals - Curious Kiki & Helpful Nuna – and the everyday challenges they face with their friends. Whenever they come up against problems they can’t quite understand, Dr. A and her assistant, You, appear to help them figure things out.
Kiki & Nuna is based on a set of popular clay toy figures. Canadian writer and actor Andrew Sabiston (Super Wing, Ranger Rob) has been a key figure in the show’s creative development.
As part of the deal, MediaLink purchased season one as well as secured a global distribution deal covering a number of worldwide territories as well as Greater China markets. MediaLink and Aola Animation will be bringing Kiki & Nuna to the Kidscreen Summit in Miami next month.
Founded in 2014, Aola has quickly grown their studio through a number of production deals with partners in China and abroad, including Alpha Group (Super Wing, Balala The Fairies) and Wing Sing Animation (CG Bond TV series and feature film).
