Posted: 11 Oct 2023

Significant sales secured for the upcoming CGI animation

Banijay Kids & Family, the global leader in children’s entertainment, behind hit shows such as Totally Spies! and Mr Bean: The Animated Series, today announces new sales for original comedy-action series Shasha & Milo.

Through Banijay Kids & Family’s distribution arm, Zodiak Kids & Family Distribution, POP (UK) and WildBrain’s Family Channel (Canada), have acquired the Zodiak Kids & Family France (part of Banijay Kids & Family) and Pingo Entertainment-produced series.

The 25 x 22’ episodes and 12 x 2’ shorts are centred around two 12-year-olds, Shasha and Milo, as they juggle everyday life, alongside their secret roles as the Crescent Island Guardians. Combining action and comedy, our protagonists are tasked with protecting the island from villainous cats and their plots to gain ultimate power, whilst navigating their own ability to transform between human, cat, and a formidable hybrid form.

“From its inception, we believed that Shasha & Milo was going to resonate with global audiences, and these latest sales are testament to its universal appeal. With the combined talents of Zodiak Kids & Family France, and Pingo Entertainment, the series incorporates strong storytelling and stunning visuals, for a premium kids show, which evidently, is in high demand.”

“The hugely entertaining Shasha & Milo cleverly combines exciting superhero action, feel-good comedy and thrilling storylines. It’s a magic formula which we know our devoted POP viewers are going to love! POP is the UK’s largest commercial children’s channel, where the adventure and laughter never stops, and so we’re thrilled that Shasha & Milo is going to be a brilliant addition to the channel portfolio. We can’t wait to bring this fantastic, fun-filled franchise to UK Free TV screens.”
