Portfolio Entertainment has been commissioned by broadcast partner Discovery Kids Latin America to produce seasons three and four of hit animated preschool series ‘Doki’. The new seasons will feature 48 new 11-minute episodes, as well as 2 half-hour specials, that will be developed and produced in-house and animated by Portfolio Animation, the company’s new Toronto studio. Pre-production on the new seasons has already begun with the first episodes scheduled for delivery in September 2016.
Here's the official synopsis:
Follow Doki and his friends as they travel all over the planet to discover the wonders of the world. Doki has a lot of questions and he'll go as far as it takes to get the answers! He's a born explorer, just like his best friends Oto, Mundi, Fico, Gabi and Anabella. Together, they're Team Doki. Anything can spark an expedition. One moment, the Team is just hanging around their clubhouse, and the next Doki is struck with a great question. What were castles really like? Where do rubber bands come from? Why won't my balloon float? Suddenly – it's expedition time! Will they find their answer in China or Brazil? At the bottom of the sea or in the International Space Station? Wherever they go, it's sure to be a fascinating expedition!
“We’re very excited to green light new seasons of this tentpole series, and once again bring Portfolio Entertainment on board to develop them so that our preschool viewers can continue to enjoy the adventures of Doki and the Worldwide Expedition Club on Discovery Kids,” commented Carolina Lightcap, Executive Vice-president and Chief Content Officer, Discovery Networks Latin America/U.S. Hispanic.
“Discovery Kids Latin America has been an incredible broadcast partner in building Doki into an entertaining international brand and we’re excited to help continue this success with the production of these new episodes,” added Julie Stall, Senior Vice President, Production, Portfolio Entertainment. “With the addition of our new animation studio, we are very happy to draw on the ingenuity and creative excellence of our entire team from start to finish for this series.”
