Paul Robinson, Imira’s CEO, comments, “Mondo Yan is a really fresh comedy adventure series that will delight kids all over the world and combines the brilliance of Catalan creativity and the production excellence and expertise of Toonz, Telegael and Imira.”
Mondo Yan has had an extensive development period to create two unique eye-catching worlds which act as the backdrop to the series. Intensive work has been done to develop the character personalities and relationships to turn up the comedy and add big doses of fun and freshness to enhance kids’ audience engagement.
The internationally-recognised LA-based kids writer, David Lewman (3-South, George of the Jungle, Kick Buttowski, 3rd Rock from The Sun) is on board as script editor across the 52 episodes.
TV3’s Head of Children’s TV, Dani Lopez adds: “Mondo Yan is one of our strategic co-productions for 2019. The adventures which the characters embark on, and the series’ comedy, fit perfectly with our channel’s editorial line”.
