Xilam Animation has secured European public broadcast partners for its upcoming CG preschool proprietary series “Piggy Builders”, with France Télévisions (France), BBC (UK) and ZDF (Germany) on board as commissioning broadcasters.

The 52 x 11’ series was first pitched by Xilam Animation at Cartoon Forum in 2021 and is now set to be delivered in Q3 2025 with Romain Villemaine as the director ("Ricky Zoom"). The first episodes will be released at the upcoming MIPCOM (October 2024).

“Piggy Builders” is created by Marie Manand, Julien Hazebroucq and Emmanuelle Leleu and follows Cornelia, Cesar and Charlie, a trio of charismatic and curly-tailed piggy siblings who live in Fine Forest. Whilst they are very different to one another in nature, they have many things in common: they all love building, they all love solving problems, they all love their community and, most importantly, they all love each other.

Marc du Pontavice, Founder and CEO at Xilam Animation, said: “As we continue expanding our offering of CG content, 'Piggy Builders' makes the perfect addition to our slate of proprietary content as it brings so many endearing characters and humorous stories of teamwork, while also highlighting the importance of family. 'Piggy Builders' received a fantastic response at Cartoon Forum, and we’re now honoured to have such strong national broadcast partners in France Télévisions, BBC and ZDF joining us on this adventure. We look forward to collaborating with each of these broadcasters and to introducing our wonderful little piggies to audiences, who we’re sure will charm and entertain preschoolers and families around the world.”
