French commissioning broadcasters secured for animated kids series based on the comic book series by Cazenove and William; Samka Productions and Bamboo Productions to serve as co-production partners.

UK -- Jetpack Distribution, has secured a commissioning deal with French broadcasters M6 and Canal Plus for The Sisters, a brand new series for 6-10 year olds. Based on the best-selling comic book series by Cazenove and William, the 2D animated series will be co-produced by Samka Productions and Bamboo Productions with Jetpack handling worldwide distribution of the animated comedy.

The Sisters charts the day to day life of two sisters aged 7 and 13. Marine is still a child while Wendy, her elder sister is entering the teenage years. Marine is naive, lovable, hyperactive and invasive and always comes up with crazy ideas to grab her older sister’s attention. Meanwhile, Wendy just aspires to be a grown up. The character driven comedy series charts the ups and downs of their relationship. They may both have strong tempers and very different personalities but they still love each other.

“We are delighted to have reached production stage on The Sisters having secured commissioning agreements with M6 and Canal Plus, France’s leading broadcasters,” commented Dominic Gardiner, CEO, Jetpack Distribution. “In The Sisters, Samka and Bamboo Productions have created a compelling, laugh-out-loud comedy filled with themes that every kid can relate to and we look forward to introducing it to buyers.”
