“‘Piny’ re-creates the life in a peculiar educational center in New York where creativity, fashion and the careers of the future are the main subjects,” Anima Kitchent’s CEO Víctor López to Variety.

Series centers on Piny, who is the janitor’s daughter at this elite high school. With quotidian, edutainment contents, Kitchent is also producing 20 additional clips for YouTube that combine live action with animation. A 52-episode toon skein “Piny” targets kids 6-8.

“Piny” is currently in production, and its 26 first chapters will be ready for delivery this summer.
