BLE 19: Studio 100 Media launches new series Doctor Space thumbnail

Studio 100 has unveiled Doctor Space, a brand-new animated comedy that will be co-produced and funded with its animation studio Little Airplane Productions, and Chinese studio Fantawild Animation.

Doctor Space, a 52 x 11’ series aimed at kids four to seven, is the first new creation from Josh Selig since his New York-based studio, Little Airplane, was acquired by Studio 100. It reunites Josh with creative collaborator Billy Lopez, an Emmy Award winner who wrote the series’ pilot.

“I'm thrilled to be reconnecting with Billy Lopez,” Josh says. “He's absolutely the funniest writer I know, and Doctor Space is the first comedy we've worked closely on together since The Wonder Pets!. I’m really excited to see the show come to life with great partners like Fantawild and Studio 100 Media.”

The show follows the misadventures of Doctor Space, a brilliant nine-year-old doctor who runs Healox, the galaxy's first and only floating alien emergency room. Here, Doctor Space and his oddball team treat a wide range of bizarre alien ailments. 

At its core is a soft educational curriculum, which focuses on learning through trial and error,and has been developed by Beth Richman, Ed.M, whose former work includes Super Wings.

Martin Krieger, CEO of Studio 100 Media, says: “For me, Doctor Space is one of the most hilarious, wacky and witty show concepts that I have seen lately. Collaborating with the brilliant teams of Fantawild and Little Airplane on the series and IP will be extraordinary.” 

The series will be introduced at MipJunior and Mipcom.
