Studio 100 announced its collaboration with SeaBelievers for the distribution of the CGI Animation series of “SeaBelievers.” The company acquired global rights, Russia and CIS exclusively, including all audio-visual and L&M exploitation. The first season will be available for release in 2021. The first episode will be presented in time for this year’s Mipcom Rendezvous Cannes 2020. “Last year at MIPJUNIOR we were looking for distributors who share the same vision, enthusiasm, and commitment to our new genre and who are willing to bring SeaBelievers to children around the globe, with passion and expertise. SeaBelievers is the first kids ECO-tainment show in the world that tells stories that will thematically matter and empower kids,” Brien Arone, SeaEO and Founder of SeaBelievers said.
“Seabelievers” was created by Brien Arone, Founder, and SeaEO of SeaBelievers. The show is the first TV series to represent a new genre of ECO-tainment and is said to serve multiple purposes, like an informative and realistic outlet touching base on real-life issues affecting the ocean and the environment. The ultimate goal of the program is to motivate children to make a sustainable, eco-friendly difference. “It is so important to let kids know that they can change the world and that there are role models for that in real life, and in shows, with authentic characters they really can relate to. For that Studio 100 is the right partner for us, not only because they have the reputation, but their aspiration and personal commitm nt convinced us. Thus, to be able to implement the exploitation of the series and L&M with one dedicated team is the ideal partnership for us.”
“Seabelievers” features an engaging musical eco-related adventure with original tunes. Each animated episode leads kids on an ECO-adventure. Each SeaBeliever carries a Magic Sand Dollar, capable of granting super powers out of self-belief. The CGI Animation is targeted at children between the ages of 4 and 7.
The creative team behind SeaBelievers consists of former Disney Exec Paul Robinson as Executive Producer, Mike de Seve as showrunner, Rich Dickerson as composet, among many others. The show is produced by Baboon Animation in the United States, Telegael in Ireland, and AnCartoon in China.
SeaBelievers were invited to the White House for Earth Day 2019 entertaining 36,000 children and they were the only children’s characters to perform at “The Super Bowl LIVE” leading up to the February 2020 Super Bowl in the US. “SeaBelievers enthralled us right from the start," Martin Krieger, CEO of Studio 100 Media / International said. " A series with such high-quality animation and detailed designs, combined with a strong message and the corresponding cosmos of values and real, informative educational content is exceptional, both from a content and L&M perspective. We are very happy with the trust that has been placed on us not only because SeaBelievers comes from the heart and its important message about the environment, but also because it’s about the future of this planet for our children."
It is so important to let kids know that they can change the world and that there are role models for that in real life, and in shows, with authentic characters they really can relate to. For that Studio 100 is the right partner for us. ” Brien Arone CEO, Founder of SeaBelievers
