Chinese streaming platform Tencent Video and animation studio Miaow’s House have appointed WildBrain as the global distributor (excluding China) for their new 2D-animated series, Pet Hotel.
Aimed at seven- to nine-year-olds, the 26 x 11-minute series stars a dog, a guinea pig and two cats who meet new animals who come to stay with them. WildBrain will pitch Pet Hotel to buyers at MIPJunior and MIPCOM next month.
Miaow’s House chairman Robin Guo is the series director, with Michael Ryan (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) and Thomas Krajewski (Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?) writing the scripts. The project’s exec producers include Tencent director of kids IP development and programming Selina She; GZ Art-land (also a co-producer) president Eddie Ng; and Vicky Zeng (Panda and Little Mole).
WildBrain’s distribution team has been busy this month. The company inked a deal with The Roku Channel to launch 5Bricks Animation Studio’s Tata and Kuma and BBC Studios’ Princess Mirror-Belle series. And it also sold 218 episodes from shows such as Shaftesbury’s Ruby and the Well and Mattel/WildBrain’s co-pro Fireman Sam to Prime Video.
