APC Kids is expanding the production slate of its animation studio, Zephyr Animation, with the new adventure-comedy CGI series, Pronto.
Pronto, an original series from Finnish studio Gigglebug Entertainment created by the company’s founders Anttu Harlin and Joonas Utti, will be co-produced by Zephyr and Gigglebug. APC Kids is now seeking broadcaster partners for the series.
Pronot is a comedy that follows the adventures of the IMP-EX, an elite package delivery service that takes pride in posting the impossible: a black hole, the Loch Ness monster, a beehive, a magic carpet, Jack’s beanstalk beans or even hair care products for a grumpy Medusa. Pronto’s team of underdogs are determined to prove they’ve got what it takes to deliver the world’s most impossible packages.
“In just a few short months, Zephyr Animation has assembled a great slate of projects with top-class co-production partners,” says David Sauerwein, Zephyr Animation’s chief creative officer. “We’re now thrilled to be working with the wonderfully creative team at Gigglebug on Pronto which we’re confident will delight kids and families around the world with its very original concept, action-packed adventures and endearing characters.”
APC Kids’ Zephyr Animation launched in September 2018 to develop its own projects as well as co-developing and co-producing properties with partners from around the world. With an emphasis on strong international sales potential, Zephyr shows will cover all children’s demographics from preschool to kids aged 6-9 and across all genres from action/adventure to comedy.
Zephyr’s slate of shows includes Adoonga, an animated comedy series from South Korean studio Vooz (creators of PUCCA), and the recently announced Gone Gills, an original comedy-adventure series created by Ferly which will also be co-produced with Canadian Yellow Animation Ltd.
