Xilam Animation to Produce "Oggy Oggy," Netflix's First French Animated Original Series

Netflix and French production company Xilam Animation today announced that Xilam will produce an original CGI animated preschool series Oggy Oggy, based on the global hit franchise Oggy and the Cockroaches, which has reached 800 million households around the world over the last 20 years.

In the new series, Oggy is freed from the ceaseless tyranny of the cockroaches and lives in a fantasy world inhabited by a vibrant community of cats. Oggy Oggy is a very special little cat, full of curiosity and enthusiasm, who likes to engage with his neighbours and set off on fun adventures.

"We are delighted with this new collaboration with Netflix, a testimony of their commitment to offering children around the world access to high-quality programmes. With this new development of our successful series Oggy and the Cockroaches, Xilam intends to establish the Oggy universe as one of the most important franchises for the pre-school target audience. By expanding its footprint, the brand is expanding its global audience." - Marc du Pontavice, Chief Executive Officer, Xilam Animation.

"We're thrilled to be working with Marc and his team to expand Oggy's universe. Xilam is one of France's most prolific producers, having developed a distinct expertise in non-dialog animated comedy for kids. We're certain Oggy's kindness and sweet charm will warm the hearts of preschoolers everywhere." - Dominique Bazay, director, kids & family international originals, Netflix.

OggyOggy will join the already robust Netflix original preschool offering for kids aged 2-6, which includes series such as Ask The StoryBots, Chip and Potato, Mighty Little Bheem, Motown Magic, Super Monsters, True and the Rainbow Kingdom, Word Party, and YooHoo to the Rescue.
