Kids’ entertainment distributor PGS Entertainment is on board as global distributor with commissioning broadcaster TF1 for Gus – the Itsy Bitsh Knight.

gus 20 june 2019The pre-school series from Technicolor Animation Productions (TAP), is based on characters created by Dankerleroux and Françoise de Guibert for Editions Gulf Stream. The story follows a small boy named Gus, who wishes to become the greatest knight in all the kingdom of Karamel. Armed with his laser sword and mounted on his electric pony, Gus never misses an opportunity to pursue adventure and win the day. Gus however is as small as his heart is big.

The show targets 4-7 year-olds, and will begin delivering in 2020. The PSG deal excludes distribution in France.

“We couldn’t be more excited to adapt the world of Dakerleroux and Françoise de Guibert to TV for kids,” said Sandrine Nguyen of TAP. “We love the vibrancy and unique group of characters from the stories, and we’re dedicated to bringing the same magic to the series. TF1 has been a great partner for some of our previous shows and we’re excited to work with them again on Gus.”

Yann Labasque, director of TF1's youth programmes, added: "During the last edition of the Salon du livre et de la presse jeunesse de Montreuil, we had a real crush on the books Gus Le Chevalier Minus. The high degree of fantasy of this comedy-adventure, full of anachronisms and super-endearing characters immediately seduced us. We are thrilled to be working on this new project with Technicolor Animation Productions teams.”
