Made for Entertainment (m4e) is charging ahead into the future with a brand-new girls' preschool series currently in production.
"Wissper" is centered on a regular, albeit quirky, little girl who has one extraordinary trait–she can talk to animals and empathize with their emotions, which leads to all sorts of problems she must solve on behalf of her furry friends.
The show will be broadcast in the U.K. on Milkshake, with a U.S. network carrier soon to be announced.
"Wissper" is a co-production in partnership with Dan Good and his London-based animation studio, Absolutely Cuckoo. Telegael, Discreet Art Productions and Bastei Media are also joint co-producers.
On the consumer product side, Bastei Lübbe has a significant portion of the international publishing rights for "Wissper," as well as the rights to develop, produce and distribute the property's games and apps.
Simba Dickie has been secured as the master toy partner, with a complete toy range currently in development.
The product program in support of "Wissper" is expected to launch in 2017, following the series' television debut.
