“Malika Alouane and Mahmoud Bouneb from JCCTV, S4C, Nia Ceidiog from Ceidiog and Andrew Fitzpactick from Monster celebrating the launch of Baaas”
Monster Distributes is launching live action series Baaas at MIPTV. With 104 x 12 mins or 52 x 24 mins plus Christmas, Ramadan and Eid specials, the series is a multicultural family sitcom, and is a ground-breaking co-production between Welsh based Ceidiog, S4C and the pan Arabic Al Jazeera Childrens Channel / JCCTV.
Ceidiog, based in Cardiff is the only Uk company to have completed two series of coproduction with JCC. Ceidiog MD Nia Ceidiog, also creator of the show said "I'm delighted that Monster are to distribute Baaas. The show is truly universal - it's about family values, and the Baaas are an extraordinary, ordinary family. They just happen to be walking, talking, singing sheep! Being with the Baaas is about Belonging!"
Meet the Baaas – there’s nothing cuter than cuddly, fluffy sheep and here’s a whole family of them. There are the twins Jaaason and Meeedea, Mom and Dad, along with Grandpa Costaaas and Grandma Baaalwen. And like all families, they bicker but the bonds of family are strong and run deep. The Baaas are connected to their relatives and friends around the world, thanks to Grandpa Costaaas who creates ways for his family to stay in touch. All episodes are available in HD.
Monster is very excited to have Baaas join Monster’s catalogue of award-winning animations, including animated series Birdy, Abby Careful, I’m an Animal and I’m a Dinosaur, non-dialogue animations Jungle Beat and Gazoon, Oscar-winning short film Harvie Krumpet and Oscar-nominated Jasper Morello and Give Up Yer Aul Sins.
