Amazon has given series orders to three new projects, and has also ordered a half-hour special. The new series, all children’s programs, are “Dino Dana,” “The Kicks” and “Lost in Oz.”
The special will be based on Aardman Animations’ Shaun the Sheep.
“Lost in Oz” and “The Kicks” were part of Amazon’s previous kids pilot season. “Lost in Oz” is billed as Amazon’s first original animated series for kids 6-11.
“The Kicks,” based on Alex Morgan’s book series, is a live-action series starring newcomer Sixx Orange.
“Dino Dana,” from J.J. Johnson, is a follow-up to his Emmy-winning “Dino Dan.” All of the projects are headed to Amazon Prime.
The special, “Shaun the Sheep: The Farmer’s Llamas,” will debut Nov. 13 in the U.S. The three series are set to launch next year.
