BEYOND PRODUCTIONS & SUPER RTL TO CO-PRODUCE NEW KIDS MAGIC SCIENCE SERIES Title 3
Beyond Productions in Australia and Super RTL in Germany are co-producing a new kids series which looks at how science and maths can create magic.
Commissioned by Super RTL, Wow! That’s Amazing (26 x30’) will form part of the channel’s ‘Wow, Die Entdeckerzone‘ strand and is scheduled to air in 2018.
Aimed at children aged between 6-12, each episode is crammed with experiments, mind games and puzzles that children can do at home. The tricks, which will be performed by a cast of children, look like magic but are created by using the scientific principles of physics, chemistry and maths.
Carsten Göttel, Programme Director, Super RTL, comments: “ Wow, Die Entdeckerzone’ has been entertaining our audience for more than 10 years. We are delighted to continue the brand and provide new inspiration for children about the world of science”.
The deal was negotiated by Sam Partner, Vice President of Sales for German Speaking Europe at Beyond Distribution, who added:
“It’s great to be working with the team at Super RTL again. What’s exciting about this series is that we make science magical. By being entertaining, informative and educational, children are encouraged to try these magic tricks for themselves – and best of all they do actually work!”
International distribution for Wow! That’s Amazing is handled exclusively by Beyond Distribution, which also distributes Backyard Science (78 x 30’), Kid Detectives (52 x 15’) and History Hunters (26 x 30’) all of which are co-produced by Beyond Productions and Super RTL.
