Zodiak, Marble develop kids prank show

Zodiak Kids has partnered with Canada’s marblemedia on a new comedy prank show.

Zodiak’s UK prodco The Foundation will work with marblemedia on the format, which is planned initially as a 40x22mins series and will see kid contestants predicting “the behaviour of their friends and family in a range of laugh-out-loud undercover pranks”.

“The Foundation and marblemedia have a wealth of combined experience in creating shows for the 8 to 12’s audience, including series such as Fort Boyard: Ultimate Challenge and Splatalot,” said Zodiak’s CEO, MEAA/UK Family and Kids, Nigel Pickard. “This new series will capitalize on this experience and create a perfect combination of comedy and entertainment programming for this audience.”

Zodiak Kids, the children’s arm of Zodiak Media, will control all worldwide rights, except in North America and the Americas, where marblemedia’s Distribution360 will handle sales.
