WarnerMedia Kids & Family EMEA Nabs ‘Jade Armor’ Broadcast Rights
WarnerMedia Kids & Family EMEA has picked up broadcast rights for TeamTO’s original 3D action-comedy series Jade Armor (26 x 22). The show was previously acquired by WarnerMedia Kids & Family U.S., providing it with a platform in the US and Latin American markets. It will now also join the kids and family lineup available on HBO Max and Cartoon Network in EMEA later this year.
Featuring an all-female creative team, Jade Armor centers around the martial arts-loving Lan Jun, an unlikely teenage heroine who must learn the ancient secrets of her family and uncover the unexpected, all while navigating life as a teen.
“Jade Armor’s central character, Lan Jun is the embodiment of girl power – a female superhero balancing her newfound responsibilities with the demands of teenage life,” commented Zia Bales, Lead Acquisitions, Partnerships and Co-productions, Kids EMEA, WarnerMedia. “We’re excited to bring this strong female lead to HBO Max and Cartoon Network in EMEA, broadening our appeal with girls and demonstrating our commitment to European content.”
“Cartoon Network has always been known for its exciting, action-packed, and funny series, so we are delighted that Jade Armor will be a headliner for girl-led characters in this genre,” added TeamTO executive producer Corinne Kouper. “HBO Max and Cartoon Network are the ideal partners and platforms to bring our spirited Jade character to life across the globe.”
Jade Armor is produced by TeamTO with broadcast partners in France (France Télévisions) and in Germany (SUPER RTL). Kouper is supported by an all-female creative team including showrunner and co-creator, Chloé Miller; head writer, MJ Offen; French story editor, Ghyslaine Pujol, and co-developer, Mary Bredin. The series is based on a concept by M Pongo Kuo.
