Digital Dimension Entertainment Group subsidiary, Saturday Animation Studio, will soon begin developing the second original children’s UHD-CGI animated series, "Aiko and the Masters of Time.” “Kids around the world will be rooting for our heroes Aiko and Wyatt in this mind-bending, thought-provoking, high-concept series that will deliver on all cylinders—action, adventure, and sci-fi,” Fred Faubert, DDEG’s CCO and Showrunner, said.

The 10-part, 22-minute show targeted at children over the age of 7, is produced by DDEG’s proprietary real-time pipeline based on Epic Games’ Unreal Engine. Co-created and co-developed by Guy Harvey, André Lavoie, Aaron Simpson, Fred Faubert, and Louis-Simon Ménard, the series is set in an age after linear time has collapsed, and then reassembled as one combined era resulting in Samurai, Cowboys, Knights, African Warriors and Stone Age Scavengers now living together in one Mega-City. Two star-crossed teens from different factions, Aiko and Wyatt, are caught in a life and death race with powerful forces who are intent on upending this fragile, blended existence for their own dark purposes.  

Cookbook Media, who serves as Saturday Animation Studio’s global franchise management agency, will  develop and implement an global distribution strategy for "Aiko and the Masters of Time" to include content, consumer products, publishing, and digital activations. The agency will introduce the series to international buyers at this year’s MIPJunior market, along with Saturday Animation Studio’s first announced IP, Chase and CatchTM.

 “Our real-time animation pipeline powered by Epic Game’s Unreal Engine, for which we have received prestigious grants, will allow us to bring the entire universe and characters to life across multiple dimensions,” Faubert said
