Seven International broadcasters have boarded the brand new animated series "Audrey’s Shelter" from French production company Watch Next Media, co-produced with Spain’s Peekaboo and Canada’s Image-in, Atlantique, with the support of the CNC, Telefilm Canada, FMC, Region Ile-de-France, and Region Haut-de-France. France Televisions (France), TVO Kids, Radio-Canada, TFO, and Knowledge (Canada) have jointly commissioned the 52 x 11’ series with public-service broadcasters ZDF (Germany) and RTVE (Spain) on board as co-producing broadcast partners. The series will air on both ZDF and KiKa in Germany and on Clan TV in Spain.

Philippe Allesandri, CEO of Watch Next Media, says: “The commitment from so many key broadcasters across multiple territories is testament to the universal appeal of 'Audrey’s Shelter'. The Wilde Refuge in the show is based on several real-life animal parks and reserves that are actively working to help endangered species, so we hope children will be both entertained and inspired by the series to treasure the natural world.”

Kids First will handle worldwide distribution and licensing rights for the environmentally conscious series, which is currently in production and will start airing in 2023. "Audrey’s Shelter" is a wild and woolly animated series. Eight years old, Audrey lives at The Wilde Refuge - her family’s shelter for endangered species. She knows first-hand that caring for a menagerie of wild animals isn’t easy but is always worth it.
