(London UK, January 17, 2018) Kids media specialists Bejuba! Entertainment and Koko Rose Media are pleased to announce their partnership with pre-eminent Canadian studio YETI FARM, and the addition of multi-Emmy Award-winning writer Scott Cameron on its preschool series, FLORA OF THE FOREST (52 x 11). The new CG animated series will be presented by Bejuba! at Kidscreen Summit 2018, with a full bible, trailer and script by multi-Emmy-winning duo, Karen Fowler and Scott Cameron.
Yeti Farm is a Canadian 2D and 3D CG animation studio founded by Ashley Ramsay, Todd Ramsay and Jason Surridge, with the advisory participation of industry veteran Blair Peters. Series to their credit include (among others) top shows Little Charmers from Nickelodeon, Camp Lakebottom, Beat Bugs, and Max & Ruby.
Scott Cameron is a two-time Emmy Award-winning Producer whose writing and educator credits include Cottonwood Media’s preschool hit The Ollie & Moon Show which was just awarded the prestigious Common Sense Media Seal, Curious George, and Sesame Workshop’s The Electric Company, winner of 10 Emmy Awards. FLORA OF THE FOREST’S co-developer and Showrunner Karen Fowler helmed The Electric Company, where she won three Emmy’s for her role as creative head and Executive Producer.
Yeti Farm is a script to screen animation studio located in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada. While Yeti Farm is best known for their high calibre production services to many iconic brands, the studio is now fully immersed in production of its own slate of original IP, with 2018 being a breakout year.
Tatiana Kober, President of Bejuba! comments, “Yeti Farm's creative and artistic strengths were a natural fit for Flora. As we’ve further developed the series with Karen and now Scott, the characters, and series has become stronger, sillier and more grounded in the wonder of the world. Together, this inspired team has created a one-of-a-kind girl who will undoubtedly befriend pre-schoolers across the globe!”
Ashley Ramsay, President of Yeti Farm comments “We absolutely fell in love with Flora from the moment we saw her. We are thrilled to push the creative look bringing Flora, her world and her friends to life on the screen for kids to enjoy across the globe.”
Created by Jo Rose, the CG animated preschool series stars a singular seven-year-old girl who lives in a treehouse with her scientist mom. Flora’s untameable desire to burrow into the world around her – with the help of her furry friends, her handy goggles and her ever-present journal – earns her the title of Citizen Scientist, Journalist Extraordinaire each and every day!
FLORA’S scriptwriting team also include Chris Parker and Sam Dransfield whose credits include some of the biggest preschool hits of all time: Chris has worked on Peppa Pig, Bob the Builder, Ben & Holly, and Timmy Time, while Sam has written for Poppy Cat, Octonauts, Numtums, Zack and Quack, Gaspar and Lisa, and Geronimo Stilton.
All rights to FLORA OF THE FOREST are held by Koko Rose Media, a joint venture between Managing Director Lisa Hryniewicz, and Creative Director Jo Rose, while distribution is managed by Bejuba!. For more information: http://bejuba.com/
