TeamTO has announced the acquisition of “Ninn,” a series of graphic novels by Jean-Michel Darlot and Johan Pilet.
For the first time, the content producer will create an ambitious animated limited series for the seven and over audience. The series will star Ninn, an 11-year-old girl with a mysterious connection to the Paris Metro.
“As soon as I saw the first album, I immediately felt attracted by its graphic design style, which is both classic and fantastical,” says Corinne Kouper, executive producer, TeamTo. “I fell in love with the independent and free-thinking spirit of this little urban girl on the platform of the Paris Metro, visibly protected by her large and warm white tiger. I also liked the idea of Ninn roaming freely through the underground tunnels on her skateboard as if it were her bedroom, and her unique and touching relationship with her two dads.”
To date, four graphic novels have been distributed in France, Belgium and Canada, with over 100,000 copies sold in France alone. A fifth and sixth novel of the series are currently in production.
