Prime Entertainment Group will be joining this year's Kidscreen Summit with a variety of animated kids' series, including "Runes" (26x22 minutes - Canal Plus & ZDF), produced by Prime's sister company, Les Armateurs ("Kirikou and the Sorceress").

The story follows 12-year-old William, heir to the throne of Normandy. After the death of his father, William seeks refuge in the village of Baligan, incognito as a peasant boy called Hugo. After stumbling upon a cave, he discovers ancient runes that unleash a mysterious magic and a terrible threat, Loki, God of chaos.

Prime's will also feature new episodes of "Ariol" (41x12 minutes), another great success on Canal Plus France both in terms of ratings and critics, as well as "Vanille, a Carribean Tale" (1x32 minutes), "Looking for Santa" (1x26 minutes) and "Bellysaurus" (1x8 minutes), a non-dialogue film about a tiny dinosaur dreaming of becoming big and scary.

These 3 programs received multiple awards and nominations at international festivals, and inked deals across the world as "Looking for Santa" was acquired by Rai (Italy) and RTHK (Hong Kong), and "Vanille" by Kika (Germany) and NHK (Japan).
