Eric Garnet, Producer / Co-Owner, GO-N Productions, told LM about the latest novelties.
What are the main new features of GO-N Productions for 2023?
This year we have a new series in production, Monster Shaker, a very funny fast paced comedy for M6/Gulli based on a series of comic books by Mr Tan and Mathilde Domecq, that we are thrilled to coproduce with DeaPlaneta Kids. The first episodes will be available after Summer on screen, and we can’t wait to share them.
We are also delighted to announce that France TV commissioned a 5th Season of Simon Super Rabbit, following the incredible success of the launch of Season 4 in terms of audience ratings both on linear and i-player. This phenomenon replicates in most countries the show is broadcast and also on digital platforms (Netflix, YouTube where Simon hits 3 Billion views), which allows the IP to expand its Licensing & Merchandising program in 2023 and beyond.
In your opinion, how is the French children’s content market evolving today?
Like the rest of the world French market is largely impacted by the development of streamers and AVOD, which changed the way kids and families are actually watching programmes.
Kids want to see their favorite shows on all screens whenever they want, which is quite a challenge in terms of rights negotiations, but created a positive impact: a high demand for kids’ content.
France, with a strong network of experienced producers and a large reservoir of talents is ideally positioned to respond to the high demand.
