ZDF in Germany has boarded a children’s drama series from Australia’s Network Ten about a teenage girl who discovers a magical world.
The Bureau of Magical Things (20×26′) comes from Jonathan M Shiff Productions (Mako: Island of Secrets, Lightning Point, H20: Just Add Water) and will be filmed in Australia this year.
ZDF Enterprises, the distribution arm of the German broadcaster, joined the show as a coproducer and distributor last year.
It follows the adventures of a regular teenage girl who acquires magical powers when caught in a clash between an elf and a fairy.
ZDF is a coproducer and will now be the show’s broadcaster in Germany.
