Salto acquires international teen drama based on LaFevers books

Period live-action drama Theodosia

French streamer Salto has acquired the youth-skewing drama series Theodosia commissioned by WarnerMedia-owned streamer HBO Max, Brazilian broadcaster Globo and German pubcaster ZDF.

The joint-venture SVoD service founded by pubcaster France Télévisions (FTV) and commercial networks TF1 and M6 will stream the 26×30′ live-action show.

FTV will also air the teen show in France, while HBO Max has added it to its service in Latin America excluding Brazil, where Globo holds rights.

Based on the books of the same name by New York Times best-selling author Robin L LaFevers, the show is set in 1906 and centres around a smart, bold 14-year-old girl and her adventures combining magic and Egyptology.

It is produced by Cottonwood Media and co-distributed by Federation Kids & Family and ZDF Enterprises.

Directed by Matthias Hoene (Cockneys vs Zombies), Alex Jacob (Hollyoaks) and Matt Bloom (Hank Zipzer), its executive producers are Joe Williams (Hank Zipzer’s Christmas Catastrophe) and Leila Smith (Find Me in Paris). The series is produced by Cottonwood Media’s David Michel, Cécile Lauritano and Zoé Carrera Allaix.

David Michel, CEO at Cottonwood Media, said: “Hiring feature film and primetime directors to work on this production has allowed us to take things to a whole new level, resulting in a premium series with a special look and feel that we are very proud of.”
