KidsCo brings Sendokai Champions to Syfy Kids


KidsCo, the international children’s channel, has announced that it has acquired hit CG-animated series Sendokai Champions from media agent Nottingham Forest.

Co-produced by audio visual production company Kotoc and Spanish Television Corporation TVE, the action-packed series will premiere fully dubbed on KidsCo’s new Syfy Kids programming block in October, as a first-run series across Central and Eastern Europe, South East Asia, South Africa, and parts of Sub-Saharan Africa. The series has been a major ratings success in Spain and will have its broadcast debut in the U.S. during the autumn.

Sendokai Champions follows the adventures of Zak, Cloe, Kiet and Fenzy, four 13- year olds who have to save the Earth from an inter-dimensional invasion, led by the evil Zorn Marshal. To do this, the four friends must overcome their weaknesses, become warriors by learning the art of Sendokai and win the Grand Tournament of the Multiverse.

Hendrik McDermott, Managing Director of KidsCo, comments: “We are delighted to have Sendokai Champions join our growing Syfy Kids programming block. The series underpins the core values and personality of Syfy Kids – pushing the boundaries of reality, fantasy and creativity and is sure to spark the imagination of children across the globe.”

David Pérez Andrés, Director of Business Development and Sales of Nottingham Forest said: “We are so pleased with this agreement with KidsCo, which will help Sendokai Champions continue to grow. KidsCo will take the incredible adventures of Sendokai Champions to many kids across Central and Eastern Europe, South-East Asia, South Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa, and will help us in positioning the brand to start building its licensing and merchandising programme in those territories.”

The Syfy Kids programming block recently launched exclusively on KidsCo, across Central and Eastern Europe in June, and South East Asia, South Africa and parts of Sub-Saharan Africa in July. The fully dubbed block airs at peak viewing times and provides an immersive experience for kids aged 6-10. Key titles on the block include: Matt Hatter Chronicles, ZuZu & the Supernuffs, Z-Squad, The Future is Wild, Back to the Future and The Mummy.
