Cannes – ZDF Enterprises and German free-to-air children’s channel KiKA have signed a deal for the coproduction of the 3D animated TV Series Insectibles (52 x 11’ HD), produced by One Animation.

Insectibles is a CGI animated adventure comedy produced in 3D and Full HD for children aged 6 to 9 years. The series follows the adventures of a young boy – Zak, a crazy old man – Gramps, and three bio-mechanically enhanced insects as they search to find pieces of the Shrinkinator – the crazy invention that shrunk our heroes before exploding during a failed testing phase. Can they find the missing pieces and fix the Shrinkinator, all the while evading the clutches of a maniacal Mosquito, her devious daughter and a whole host of evil underlings? Zak has managed to find the adventure of a lifetime, literally in his own back yard.

Sashim Parmanand, CEO of One Animation, said, “At One Animation we strive to create endearing story lines and beautifully designed characters. We know these things are integral to ZDF Enterprises’ and KiKA’s objectives, so we’re delighted that Insectibles has found a home with them.”
