Tiger Aspect Kids & Family and Little Tiger to Collaborate on TV OptionsComments Off on Tiger Aspect Kids & Family and Little Tiger to Collaborate on TV Options
Tiger Aspect Kids & Family (part of Banijay Kids & Family) today announces it will join forces with children’s publisher Little Tiger, with the intention to option and develop future animated and live action TV projects, aimed at children of all ages and families.
Little Tiger’s rich portfolio of bestselling and far-reaching books, featuring unforgettable characters, striking worlds and wide-ranging concepts, are the perfect source material to create innovative and entertaining TV for children and families. With Tiger Aspect Kids & Family’s presence internationally and its strong creative team, the collaboration aligns both companies ambitions to nurture talent and grow in the entertainment space.
Tom Beattie, Managing Director at Tiger Aspect Kids & Family said: “This felt like a perfect partnership, not just because we both have ‘Tiger’ in the company names. Little Tiger creates some brilliant characters and worlds that fit with the Tiger Aspect Kids & Family DNA, and so it made sense to work more closely together. We have a proven track record of taking books to screen and we’re excited with what is to come.”
David Bucknor, Managing Director at Little Tiger said: “Children’s books have always provided a treasure trove of stories to inspire film and TV. Over the last few years, we have seen a marked increase in interest in our books, from producers keen to feed the ever-growing number of platforms and distributors hungry for content. As we embark on this exciting collaboration with Tiger Aspect Kids & Family, we look forward to working together creatively, and finding new ways of sharing our stories with screen audiences.”
Under the leadership of MD Tom Beattie, Tiger Aspect Kids & Family creates bold, funny and iconic content for all ages, from pre-school through to family. Spanning live-action series and animated shows, notable credits for the multi-BAFTA award-winning company include Aliens Love Underpants, Charlie and Lola, Mr Bean: The Animated Series, Danny & Mick, Tinga Tinga Tales Corpse Talk and the recently announced Super Happy Magic Forest.
The deal was negotiated by Jude Evans on behalf of Little Tiger and Tiger Aspect Kids & Family’s Dee Stevens.
