Maverick European kid’s entertainment company, TeamTO has partnered with France Télévisions and Super RTL in Germany to greenlight its animated action-comedy “Jade Armor.” The series is currently under production, with the first episode scheduled to air in Fall 2021. “France Télévisions is particularly proud to include 'Jade Armor' in its animated kids' line-up,” Director of Youth Programming and Animation, France Télévisions, Tiphaine de Raguenel, said. “This series is an excellent example of what a female heroine can bring to action-adventure.”
MJ Offen served as Head Write and Mary Bredin as co-Developer. Creator and Director Chloé Miller contribute the most martial arts techniques to the action scenes of the film. The series teaches the audience, intended for children ages 3-12 years old on Okoo, different forms of handling confrontations with antagonists, and how to use their self-power.
Miller is a graduate of the Beaux-Arts Saint Etienne and renowned animation directors graduate school La Poudrière. She has contributed to many well-known films, such as creative direction for “Angelo Rules,” “Babar and the Adventures of Badou” and “Yellowbird,” along with other projects for Disney, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, Spinmaster, Warner Bros., and more. She was Head of Story for Mattel’s Girls Brands content.
A 30-year Maverick expert in the field of CGI, Corinne Kouper was twice honored as Producer of the Year in 2010 and 2015. She is also the recipient of two Emmy Awards and one Pulcinella Award. “We developed ‘Jaded Armor’ with passion and care for its original female lead’s point of view, led by our talented director, Chloe Miller,” she said. “Chloe’s vision and passion for anime add an original spin to this show, with nuanced and comical characters that bring a fresh voice to kids TV.”
The 26 22-minute episodes of the action-comedy tell the story of a teenage girl named Lan Jun, whose life takes an unexpected turn when she puts on a mysterious bracelet sent anonymously through the mail. Together with the help of her friends Theo and Alisha, Lan Jun must deal with both an evil array of super villains and the challenges that come with being a teenager. “‘Jade Armor’ has all the ingredients Super RTL was looking for: a strong and relatable female lead, stories full of adventure, filled with humor and fun, positive role models and relationships characterized by friendship, family and the idea of great teamwork,” Super RTL’s Content Director Martin Gradl said.
