Premium kids content distributor Federation Kids & Family and European leading entertainment company Planeta Junior have announced sales and co-production deals on Cottonwood Media’s animated series Squish, which started to roll-out internationally earlier this year.
The companies finalized recent deals with NEOX (Atresmedia) in Spain and Tooniverse in Korea, as well as a deal with Kidz a new SVOD joint venture between HOT and Yes (Israel).
NEOX will participate as co-producer of the show in Spain.
Squish is a fast-paced, slapstick series based on the New York Times best-selling graphic novels by Jennifer Holm and Eisner Award-winning creator Mathew Holm, brought to life by Head Writer John Derevlany (Lego: Legend of Chima, Johnny Test, Endangered Species, Angry Beaver), and EP David Michel (The Ollie & Moon Show, Totally Spies!).
The series is a genuinely original animated comedy about everyday school kids, their friendships, parents, and efforts to fit in. Except the kids are…amoebas! The series follows the adventures of a twinkie-eating grade school amoeba trying to find his place in a single-cell world.
Set in Small Pond, Squish’s hometown looks suspiciously like an ordinary suburb, with its tidy streets, schools and homes…with just one small difference: Small Pond is inhabited solely by single-celled organisms. They’re mostly like us - with a few unicellular quirks: algae are the cool kids, parasites can’t be trusted and, of course, bacteria always make a mess of everything.
Squish is produced by Cottonwood Media and Planeta Junior, in partnership with Gulli (France, Russia, Africa) distributed by Federation Kids & Family and Planeta Junior.
