Planeta Junior consolidates its position as a leading animated content producer with two new original series

Planeta Junior has signed a collaboration deal with Fourth Wall to produce two new kids’ animation series: Milo and Superpigs.

Fourth Wall Animation, an emerging independent producer of animated entertainment content for the whole family, was selected by Planeta Junior to partner on two new animated series. Superpigs and Milo now join the list of other Planeta Junior productions, which includes: Power Players, Gormiti, That’s Joey, Squish, Pio Rocks! and Tilly.

Fourth Wall is one of the rare companies that excels at transmedia storytelling and is capable of creating lovable characters that are intended to work beautifully both in books and in animation series. Superpigs and Milo are the perfect example of Planeta Junior’s content strategy, which is to produce highly original stories with the best independent creators.” Diego Ibáñez, International Commercial Director, Planeta Junior.

There is a natural synergy between Fourth Wall and Planeta Junior. We share the same commercial ambitions, as well as a passion for creating high-quality, engaging, character-led content. As well as an excellent distribution & licensing pedigree, Planeta are also underpinned by impressive publishing roots – so has a similar group business model – making them the perfect partner for Fourth Wall.Joe Moroney, CEO, Fourth Wall.

Milkshake!, Channel 5’s top rated British preschool service targeting 2-5-year-olds, has commissioned Milo, which is due to launch in Autumn 2020 with support from the Government funded Young Audiences Content Fund (YACF), through the BFI.

Milo (52 x 11’) is a pre-school series about an adventurous cat called Milo, who loves to use role-play to explore the wide world of jobs and vocations. Together with his best friends Lofty and Lark, each episode celebrates a different job role, introducing little ones to a variety of professions as they go on adventures when they change outfits.

Planeta Junior will soon release more news about its major new production: Superpigs the series. Both Milo and Superpigs will allow Planeta Junior to cover all audiences from preschoolers to 9-year-olds.

Superpigs (26 x 22’) is for 5-9-year-olds and brings a very modern twist to classic fairy tales as the Three Little Pigs and Little Red Riding Hood are given superhero status as they fight criminals and the Big Bad Wolf. Comedy, mystery, action and drama combine in a series that values teamwork as the way to solve cases.
