Federation Kids & Family has teamed up with TeamTO on the new animated comedy series Presto! School of Magic, based on StudioCanal’s hit animated feature, The House of Magic. The series which was announced earlier this year has secured partnerships with French broadcasters M6 and Canal+.
The series is produced by TeamTO in co-production with Belgian partners Panache Productions and La Compagnie Cinématographique. Federation Kids & Family will be responsible for worldwide distribution, managing all television rights outside of China.
“We’re thrilled to begin this partnership with our good friends at Federation, a company that - like TeamTO - has established itself as a leading player in the global kids’ market,” remarked TeamTO president and co-founder, Guillaume Hellouin. “Our creative visions for Presto! School of Magic are perfectly aligned, making them an ideal choice to distribute to all our friends around the world.”
“TeamTO has a solid reputation as one of the most creative studios in the industry today, and their unique productions share the same high-end values that complement our existing premium titles,” added Federation Kids & Family head of sales, Monica Levy. “Presto! School of Magic is an amazing series that has all the exceptional ingredients to inspire magic-loving kids the world over, and the timing for such an uplifting exceptionally crafted production is perfect. We know that it will definitely have our buyers spellbound!”
Presto! School of Magic (52 x 11’) features a band of talented and curious kids who dream of becoming magicians. Star students Dylan and Lisa cannot believe how lucky they are to be part of this new school. Lorenzo, a retired magician of international renown, and his nephew have turned their old mansion into Presto! School of Magic, where Lisa, Dylan, and fellow aspiring magicians Nica, Violet and Vincent, learn the tricks of the trade. They all have a different reason for attending the school – but they have one thing in common: a passion for illusion, conjuring and the art of magic!
Presto! School of Magic was an official selection at Cartoon Forum 2017 where the series’ producer, Corinne Kouper, was honored twice as Producer of the Year in 2010 and 2015. Kouper is also the recipient of two Emmy Awards and one Pulcinella Award in her career of creating hits such as Mighty Mike, Angelo Rules, Yellowbird the movie, Zoe Kezako and Rolie Polie Olie.
