First Look: Nick Jr's "Zack & Quack"

24 January 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

I don't cover pre-school as much as I'd like, but this new series, making its debut on Nick Jr. internationally over the next few weeks - and in the Us this spring - is a winner. Co-created by Yvette Kaplan (Beavis and Butt-head Do America, Ice Age) and Gili Dolev (The Happy Duckling), "Zack & Quack" is set in a pop-up book and has a unique paper sculpture look, courtesy of art director Erez Gavish.  The series follows the adventures of a seven-year-old boy called Zack and his devoted duck, Quack. The duo live in a unique "pop-up world", where they can use tabs, pulls and other devices to trigger popups that create an interactive story.  Zack and Quack is executive produced by Zodiak Meaa/UK family and kids chief executive Nigel Pickard with The Foundation's Vanessa Hill, alongside Kaplan and Qqd's Ronen Shani. Simon Spencer serves as the series showrunner. »
