Streamer bolsters animation line-up with YA 3D/CG fantasy series about otherworldly sisters separated at birth and reunited at a school for the supernatural; series drops January 20 with all 16 episodes.
Peacock continues to expand its animated offerings with an all-new original YA 3D/CG fantasy 3D series, Supernatural Academy, produced by 41 Entertainment. Based on best-selling book series by Jaymin Eve, the series chronicles an otherworldly adventure of sisters marked at birth. One twin sister was raised in the Supernatural world, confident and popular. The other was raised in the human world, an offbeat outsider. Now they're about to be reunited at the Supernatural Academy, and neither one of them is thrilled about it. These adversarial twins will have to learn to get over their differences and trust each other to save themselves – and save the world! All 16 episodes drop on Thursday, January 20.
“It is so incredible to see my original story come to life in this high-quality animation project,” shared Eve. “I am so grateful to both Peacock and 41 Entertainment for believing in me and I am sure that all of the fans of the books are anxiously marking January 20th on their diaries.”
The show is executive produced by Allen Bohbot and directed by Steve Ball. Jody Prouse serves as animation director. The series was developed and written for TV by Gillian Horvath. Original theme songs are composed by John Majkut. Produced by 41 Entertainment (Kong-King of the Apes, Tarzan and Jane, Super Monsters), the animation services are provided by ICON Creative Studio.
