Studio 100 to handle licensing, merchandising, and global distribution for new CGI comedy FriendZSpace

Published on: 28th August 2020

Studio 100 Group is the handle the licensing and merchandising programme, as well as the worldwide distribution of a new CGI animated series called FriendZSpace, a comedy adventure series about three human children who are dedicated to making friends with young aliens from across the universe.

The project is the work of a collaboration between Studio 100 and T&B Media Global in partnership with Flying Bark Productions. The trio will be presenting the series at this year’s MIPCOM Rendezvous Cannes.

Created by Dan Clark (“Team Smithereen”, Disney and “Yo Gabba Gabba”, Nick Jr.) and Oscar Covar (“Team Smithereen”, Disney and “Tasty Tales of The Food Truckers”, T&B) – the first season is set for delivery in 2021.

Jwanwat “Dr. Tan” Ahriyavraromp, founder and CEO at T&B Media Global, said: “Every new friend is a new window into a world totally unknown to us. It is my hope that FriendZSpace will show our young viewers how to connect with the wonderful tapestry of humanity that we share this planet with.”

Dan Clark, executive producer and co-creator of FriendZSpace, added: “FriendZSpace is about three human kids traveling from planet to planet for the sole purpose of befriending dozens of funny and cool alien kids. The production itself is based across Thailand, Australia, Germany, Mexico, and the US, mirroring the series itself. Many cultures, much creativity, all working remotely (Covid-style), sharing a positive vision and, most importantly, making new friends.”

Martin Krieger, CEO at Studio 100 Media, concluded: “Many shows circle around ‘having’ friends. With FriendZSpace the core of the show is how to find friends. It’s very easy to make friends with others who are just like you, but it’s so rewarding to make friends with completely unique people – even if they are aliens in all shapes and sizes.

“Making friends as the essence of the show means being open, showing kids that they should have fun exploring diverse perspectives on life, cultures, ideas and people. This is what enthused us about FriendZSpace, right from the very beginning. With such ingenious creators like Dan Clark and Oscar Covar, together with T&B Media Global and Flying Bark Productions, we are excited about FriendZSpace – a brand-new show that is literally reaching for the stars.”
