NICOLE LAMBERT’S TRIPLETS
The series Nicole Lambert's Triplets is broadcasted on France 5 since October 18, 2014. Follow the Triplets every saturday morning and every day during school vacations.
SND will handle worldwide distribution of NICOLE LAMBERT’S TRIPLETS, which will consist of 78 x 7 minute animated episodes. Produced by MEDIA VALLEY and LA STATION ANIMATION, the TV series is now aired on France 5 in France.
NICOLE LAMBERT’S TRIPLETS tells the “everyday adventures” of two brothers and their sister, exploring childhood with incredible energy and wild imagination, getting into some mischief along the way… The series is an icon of the French-speaking world’s cultural heritage, much like Little Nick, Martine, and Babar the Elephant. Published in 1983 for the first time in the Madame Figaro magazine, "The Triplets" was an overnight success. Twenty-three comic books by Nicole Lambert have been published with over 2 million copies sold around the world. Merchandising items have already been made in The Triplets’ image including Toys/ Stationery / Food & Health Beauty / Home & Infant / Apparel, Accessories & Footwear…
The graphic universe of NICOLE LAMBERT’S TRIPLETS will come to life through CGI animation which will add volume and life to the characters while respecting the author’s drawing style. The staging will give the sensation of really being immersed in the Triplets’ world. Whether following them as they get into mischief or sharing the experience of imaginary situations of their own invention, viewers will really feel part of whatever universe the triplets are in.
LIONEL UZAN (DIRECTOR OF ACQUISITIONS AND INTERNATIONAL SALES - SND): Throughout its international distribution over the past 30 years, Nicole Lambert’s books have made "The Triplets" an incredible property to work on. The program will attract both parents, familiar with the characters, and children able to project themselves in them. The TV series will bring the whole family together. We are thrilled to work with Media Valley and La Station Animation whose previous projects have demonstrated their knowhow in animation and TV adaptation of worldwide franchises.
NICOLE LAMBERT (CREATOR OF THE TRIPLETS): I hope The TRIPLETS will have the same effect on their audience that they had on me: Keeping childhood alive, telling about happiness - the happiness of being a child, the happiness of having children. Telling about love, love of children for their mother, love of mother for her children. Telling about the funny side of life, the little gags, blunders and quiproquo which happen every day in the lives of three such lively kids. Giving us a big draught of positive energy, with a touch of Parisian "art de vivre".
NATALIE ALTMANN (PRODUCER – MEDIA VALLEY): Nicole Lambert’s TRIPLETS have been a very familiar property for French-speaking territories in Europe and Canada. The books are also being translated for the Asian market, noticeably China, showing that the stories depicted in the books and the charming graphic style of Nicole, bear the type of universality any producer dreams of for an animated adaptation. We are proud that Media Valley and La Station have been chosen to achieve that goal and serve the humor and energy of the original property.
The production of the series has started. The first scripts are available and the first episodes will be delivered during summer 2014.
