Bureau Of Magic Teams Up With Zodiak Kids For New Animated Action-Adventure Comedy Series SAVE THE LEGENDS!

28 January 2020

Brand new series from the creators and producers of Emmy® Award-winning Lost in Oz

Bureau of Magic Studios (BoM), an award-winning studio that creates, writes, and produces inclusive family entertainment, has signed a deal with Banijay Group’s Zodiak Kids, a global independent leader in kids entertainment, producing animation and live action programming for a wide range of international broadcasters, for its new animated action-adventure comedy series Save the Legends! The two companies will co-produce Save the Legends! with Zodiak Kids handling international broadcast sales. Zodiak Kids also handles international sales for the Emmy Award®-winning Bureau of Magic-created series, Lost in Oz.

Save the Legends! is a 26x22’ episodic action-adventure comedy for 6-9 year olds and their families about an amateur search and rescue team of young, totally-in-over-their-heads mythical creatures. Set in a secret and mysterious world of reimagined folklore, our supernatural kid crew consists of four Bairies (short for “Big and Hairy”) and their first official human friend, a young gadget whizz from South America named Alandra. Together, they risk it all to save the day, one legendary mission at a time. The first three episodes of season one will also form an epic, origin story movie event.

True to BoM’s style, the series features cinematic storytelling, tons of humor, lots of heart, and a ubiquitous entry point to a world of totally unexpected imagination.



Abram Makowka, Executive Producer and Co-Founder of the Bureau of Magic said “We grew up watching stories about unsuspecting young kids thrust into epic adventures. The stakes were always high. The camaraderie was always enviable. And the comedy was so quotable, we’re still referencing it today. That’s what we’re looking to capture with this series.”

Mark Warshaw, Executive Producer and Co-Founder of the Bureau of Magic added “Save the Legends! is an inclusive series designed to incorporate myths from any culture in the world and sets them inside a storytelling universe celebrating the magic of teamwork and the wonder of nature - wrapped up in show that’s big on heart and even bigger on humor.”

Benoit Di Sabatino CEO, and Delphine Dumont, SVP Sales, Acquisitions and Co-Productions at Zodiak Kids added “Zodiak Kids is a huge fan of Bureau of Magic’s creative work. Like Lost in Oz, Save the Legends! is a high-quality comedy series with moving characters exploring an incredible universe. We are looking forward to working with the Bureau team to take the series out to the international market.”

Bureau of Magic is the team behind the Emmy® Award-winning Lost in Oz which aired on Amazon Prime worldwide. The Prime Original special “Lost in Oz: Extended Adventure” scooped up three Daytime Emmy® Awards in 2017 for “Outstanding Children’s Animated Program,” “Outstanding Sound Mixing – Animation,” and “Outstanding Sound Editing – Animation.” It was also nominated for the 2018 Emmy® for “Outstanding Children’s Animated Series” and a 2017 Annie Award for “Best Animated Television Production for Children”.

Bureau of Magic is represented by CAA.
