TeamTO, Thuristar Kick Off Production On ‘My Knight And Me’

Leading French animation shingle TeamTO and Belgian outfit have started the production of CGI animated medieval series “My Knight and Me.”

The toon skein has been pre-bought by Canal+ Family, Teletoon+, Super RTL, VRT-Ketnet, RTBF-Ouftivi and distributor Cake Entertainment.

“Modern everyday heroes accomplish extraordinary challenges, in incredible settings worthy of a classic chivalry film – all with tremendous humor. This show genuinely has all ingredients of a great show,” said Laurence Blaevoet, director of kids programming at Canal Plus.

A spinoff of Thuristar’s short film “850 Meters,” “My Knight and Me” centers on the adventures of Jimmy the Squire and Cat the Princess who are best friends at Epic High.

Thuristar is producing short imaginary 2D sequences while TeamTO is handling the 3D animation.

“We are very excited to produce a second series with Joeri Christiaen. The quality of his pacing is simply remarkable, while his very particular and distinct sense of humor is one-of a kind,” said TeamTO exec producer Corinne Kouper. “The series will be a completely anachronistic, innovative and hilarious spoof on chivalry.”

Created by Belgian composer Frederik Segers, the music will play also play an important part in giving the series a medieval feel.

Delivery for “My Knight and Me” is planned for the end of 2016, and the series will air on Canal Plus Family and on Super RTL in Germany.
