Zodiak Kids has just announced the launch of Marathon Media’s new animated series Lolirock (52 x 26), which features magic, mystery, and music and is developed in partnership with France Televisions and Disney Channel (France).
Lolirock is targeted towards children aged 6 to 12, and follows the journey of young Iris, a spirited teenage girl with a beautiful voice and an unending desire to help others. When Iris joins the girl band LOLIROCK, her life is changed forever, as a new world of music, mystery and magical powers is revealed. Three new friends are now bound together by their common destiny as magical princesses and their battle for justice.
“LOLIROCK is a fresh, contemporary take on what it is to be a girl today, infused with music and magical adventures and the all-important notion of justice in today’s teenage world. It’s a perfect companion piece to Totally Spies!, which has been so successful in this same space,” says Vincent Chalvon-Demersay (CEO, Marathon Media) and David Michel (General Manager, Marathon Media).
“France Televisions is a proud partner with Marathon Media for LOLIROCK and we are thrilled to be on board for this original new series. The show will have a wide audience appeal, loved by girls, thanks to the outstanding mix of adventure and comedy, with the great plus of being a musical show,” adds Tiphaine de Raguenel, Director of Youth Program Activities.
Lolirock’s broadcast launch is scheduled for early 2014 on France Televisions followed by the Disney Channel.
