Zag has closed multiple deals to air the first two seasons of the 3D computer-animated series for kids “Power Players,” with whom it made in collaboration with On Kids & Family, Man of Action Entertainment, and directed by Tarik Hamdine. The company signed a non-exclusive global SVOD deal with Netflix, which launched March 5th, 2020, along with broadcast deals with Channel 9 in Australia, family/kids’ channel Plusplus in Ukraine, Karusel in Russia, and Teletoon in Canada.
The new partners form part of a line-up of broadcast, cable, and satellite TV partners, which include Cartoon Network US, EMEA Asia Pacific, France’s France Télévisions, Germany’s WDR, Brazil’s Gloob, and Discovery Latin America. “We are extremely proud of this new original creation that we developed alongside Man of Action, Cartoon Network, FTV, and Playmates Toys," said ZAG’s CEO Jeremy Zag. “It will be launching in 2020, worldwide, with the best international partners. So, now, Play on.”
Featuring CGI-hybrid animation, “Power Players” follows the adventures of a boy named Axel who secretly transforms into a 6-inch superhero. His team of toy heroes embarks on a series of adventures. Together, the team of power players fights a villainous robot named Madcap and his group of vile friends.
The show inspired the “2020 Power Players” toy collection, which includes an assortment of 5-inch action figures based on the show, as well as 9-inch deluxe action figures that are packed with electronics and sound effects. The line also features a variety of vehicles, as well as role-play gear that allows kids to transform into Axel.
