Relativity Television has inked a first-look production deal with “Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers” alum Shuki Levy, signaling that the shingle is moving into the children’s television space.

Under the pact, Relativity TV will oversee worldwide distribution, finance and production for Levy’s content in the tyke realm. “Tribe of the Wild,” an action-adventure series that centers on five high school students and blends live-action with CGI animation, is Levy’s first project to fall under the deal.

Relativity Television is committed to building a home for some of the most talented, creative and successful producers in the industry,” said Relativity TV CEO Tom Forman. “We are thrilled to be expanding our scripted business by forging this relationship with the renowned Shuki Levy, who has an unparalleled sense of how to create high-quality children’s content. ”
