Netflix announced its collaboration with ViacomCBS International Studios (VIS) to bring a new animated series to its platform, called ‘Sharkdog’. The animated series will be created by Singaporean creator Jacinth Tan. Sharkdog is the latest move, among many, by the streaming giant to further its slate of animated features in a bid to capture the exploding children’s streaming market.
Choosing the Singaporean creator is also a move in the right direction for Netflix, as it looks to expand acquisition of content to include a wide demographic of regions, countries and content creators.
Netflix has acquired twenty episodes of the series for streaming, with each episode 7 minutes long. The series will premiere in 2021. Sharkdog is produced by ViacomCBS International Studios, in partnership with Singaporean based CGI animation studio One Animation.
The official logline for the series that was shared with the media by Netflix reads: “The series follows 10 year old Max and his best friend Sharkdog – half shark, half dog, all appetite. Blissfully unaware of his own strength, stealth and general sharkiness, Sharkdog often leaves a trail of chaos in his wake. But, like all good half-dogs, he’s Max’s BFF and Max is his.”
The description of the series sure is interesting, and Sharkdog, the pet that is half shark half dog sounds utterly, alluringly adorable.
Not just kids, we’re sure adults will find the series fun to watch too. We simply can’t wait for this one!
