WarnerMedia EMEA acquires Jade Armor
April 1, 2022
TeamTO, a European creator of kids entertainment, has announce the sale of broadcast rights of its original action-comedy animated series Jade Armor to WarnerMedia Kids & Family EMEA.
Jade Armor was previously acquired by WarnerMedia Kids & Family in the US, ensuring a premium platform placement for the martial arts animated series in the US and Latin American markets. As part of Cartoon Network’s commitment to broadcasting more animation that appeals to girls, Jade Armor will join the kids and family lineup available on HBO Max and Cartoon Network in EMEA later this year.
Zia Bales, Lead Acquisitions, Partnerships and Coproductions, Kids EMEA at WarnerMedia, commented: “Jade Armor’s central character, Lan Jun is the embodiment of girl power – a female superhero balancing her newfound responsibilities with the demands of teenage life. We’re excited to bring this strong female lead to HBO Max and Cartoon Network in EMEA, broadening our appeal with girls and demonstrating our commitment to European content.”
TeamTO Executive Producer Corinne Kouper, added: “Cartoon Network has always been known for its exciting, action-packed and funny series, so we are delighted that Jade Armor will be a headliner for girl-led characters in this genre. HBO Max and Cartoon Network are the ideal partners and platforms to bring our spirited Jade character to life across the globe.”
Jade Armor features an all-female creative team and centres around the martial arts-loving Lan Jun, an unlikely teenage heroine who must learn the ancient secrets of her family and uncover the unexpected, all while navigating life as a teen. The series is based on a concept by M Pongo Ku.
