South Africa’s The Flying Circus has inked a distribution deal with Canada’s Breakthrough Entertainment that will introduce the animated comedy Silly Seasons to North American viewers.
Silly Seasons follows the adventures of four girls—each representing a different season—who live in the fantasy world of Sillyville, which is inhabited by a variety of wacky plants and animals. The 26×24-minute series is meant for children between the ages of eight and 12. It combines traditional key-frame animation with motion capture.
Andre van der Merwe, animation producer at The Flying Circus, remarked: “Silly Seasons is South Africa’s first motion-captured animated series and we are thrilled to work with Breakthrough to take the show to a new audience. The series is fun, energetic and unique, and we are confident it will appeal to kids in North America.”
“Breakthrough is always looking to broaden our frontiers in family entertainment, so when we found The Flying Circus and were impressed by the unique style of Silly Seasons, we were eager to cultivate a relationship with them to help bring this lively new series to North America,” added Craig McGillivray, the VP of distribution at Breakthrough Entertainment.
