Little Airplane Productions, Fantawild Animation (China), and Studio 100 Media announced that they will collaborate on Doctor Space, a new animated comedy for 4 – 7-year-olds.  The companies plan to co-invest in the production of the brand-new TV series and IP initiated by Little Airplane.

The team behind Doctor Space is impressive: The pilot was written by Emmy Award- winning creator/writer/composer Billy Lopez (Welcome To The Wayne, The Wonder Pets) and the show’s educational curriculum was written by Beth Richman, Ed.M. (Super Wings).  Doctor Space is the first new series that was created by Josh Selig since his New York-based studio, Little Airplane, was acquired by Studio 100.

Doctor Space follows the misadventures of Doctor Space, a brilliant 9-year-old doctor who runs Healox, the galaxy’s first and only floating alien emergency room. Here, Doctor Space and his oddball ER team treat a wide range of bizarre alien ailments, such as Two-Headed Typhus, which causes its victims to grow a second head that won’t stop digressing. (Doctor Space also developed the universe’s first holographic bottom-sling to help a teenaged Pythagor who sprained his behind whilst surfing the Milky Way.)  Every episode is filled with raucous and non-stop alien medical ridiculousness.  Doctor Space relies heavily on his friend and business partner, Azod, a 10-year-old girl who keeps Doctor Space and Healox from falling apart each day.

Doctor Space is an animated comedy (52 x 11min) for 4 – 7 year-old kids and has a “soft” educational curriculum with a focus on “Learning Through Trial and Error” and “Helping Others.”   The series will be introduced at MIPJunior. and MIPCOM.
