Geronimo Productions’ ‘Nelly and Nora’ to premiere on February 2nd
20 Jan 2015 : Seán Brosnan
Nelly and Nora has also signed numerous international deals after being pitched at MIPCOM 2013
Irish animation company Geronimo Productions have announced that their new series ‘Nelly & Nora’ will premiere on RTEjr from February 2nd.

With support from the RTÉ and the Irish Film Board, the company pitched the series internationally at Mipcom 2013 where BBC (CBeebies) quickly secured the UK rights followed by BBC Worldwide who then secured the rest of the world for International Distribution and Global CBeebies channels.

Separately, Geronimo inked a major deal with the largest broadcaster in Germany ZDF (KIKA). The series is already selling well in other territories and will air in many other countries this year. BBC (Cbeebies) will transmit the series this coming May.

The series was created and produced by Gerard O’Rourke, directed by Jamie Teehan and developed by Emma Hogan. Music was provided by Darren Hendley while the show was written by Emma Hogan and Andrew Brenner with Hogan also providing the original illustrations and designs. Voices are provided by Clodagh Kane and Aoibhinn Mc Auley who play Nelly and Nora, alongside Ardal O’Hanlon who plays Dad, Linda Teehan as Mum and Paul Tylak as Farmer Joe.

Geronimo has created, financed and produced a number of TV series such as ‘Punky’, ‘Ballybraddan’, ‘Planet Cosmo’ and ‘Fluffy Gardens’.

International Book Publishers also saw the series potential with Geronimo choosing leading publisher Walker Books to partner with them on the project. The first hardback book will be published early next year as part of an extensive publishing programme.

Gerard O’Rourke, series creator and principal of Geronimo Productions said: ‘This is the perfect storm, the best terrestrial TV partners, world class distributor and publisher, but most importantly the new talent of Emma Hogan and Jamie Teehan - I am humbled.’

Following its’ debut on RTEjr ‘Nelly & Nora’ will be launched internationally at BBC Worldwide’s Annual Showcase in Liverpool in February and also at Kidscreen in Miami in the same week.

The series follows the stories of two young sisters who spend their holidays and weekends with their parents at the family’s mobile home in a camping park by the sea and is designed to entertain young viewers and encourage them to discover that the weather outside is something to be embraced and enjoyed.

‘Nelly and Nora’ will premiere on RTEjr on Monday, February 2nd.
