Meta Media Picks Up Ping and Friends Ahead of Annecy Festival
Meta Media recently secured the rights to the newly completed series Ping and Friends. The kids’ series is a co-production effort between Brazil’s PinGuim Content and Canada’s Kondolele Films, and already boasts of presells to notable broadcasters such as Discovery Kids in LatAm and TVO, TFO, Tele Quebec, and Knowledge Network in Canada. The series is also supported by an app and a nomination for the 2019 Youth Media Alliance Award of Excellence for Best Interactive Content in the preschool category.
The official synopsis for Ping and Pong describes the story as revolving around best friends Ping and Pong, who share a love for music. They also share this love with other characters such as Mr. Prickles, Matilda, and Trix06 who will sing, dance, and teach new melodies in the wonderful place called Melody Meadows.
“What makes this show so special, so unique, is that, while it is an educational show, the characters and the audience are discovering music one element at a time as the story unfolds,” commented Celia Catunda of PinGuim. “Instead of the content just being handed over, it’s this really fun, whimsical, musical adventure.”
