According to a recent announcement, Endemol Shine Group has inked a new deal with Disney Junior in the US, for the short-form animated series titled “Aliens Love Underpants AND…” The deal will see the series make its way to both Disney’s linear TV channel and the DisneyNOW App.
Aliens Love Underpants AND… is based on the award-winning book series from Simon and Schuster, which focuses on five colorful alien heroes who sing silly songs, perform ridiculous moves, and entertain both themselves and the viewers with various skits and shenanigans while dancing the Underpants Dance. The series is formatted as a 12 x 2 minute series, and was originally commissioned by Sky Kids in the UK and Ireland.
“I’m so pleased that our underpants-loving aliens are heading to the US and Disney Junior is the perfect home. The mobile game is great fun and the kids will love engaging with the characters,” said Tom Beattie, Tiger Aspect’s Head of Kids and Animation.”
