HBO Max has picked up exclusive SVOD rights in the US for 41 Entertainment’s upcoming CG-animated series S.M.A.S.H!, which will premiere globally in 2022. Discovery Family Channel and Discovery Familia in the U.S. have secured exclusive linear rights.

Targeted to four- to seven-year-olds (52 x 11 minutes), the action adventure series, S.M.A.S.H! stars a diverse team of kids with superpowers who are training with their equally gifted dogs at the SMASH camp. Created and executive produced by 41 Entertainment managing director Allan Bohbot, the show is based on an original idea by writer Kaaren Lee Brown, who developed it for TV with 41 Entertainment VP of acquisitions, productions and development Kiersten Halstead.

According to a spokesperson for the prodco, S.M.A.S.H! was actually two different shows (Superhero Summer Camp and Superhero Pets) originally, which were announced in 2018. 41 Entertainment has since blended them into a single series.

41 Entertainment is the studio behind Super Monsters on Netflix, Kong King of the Apes and Tarzan and Jane. Last year, it expanded into animation for young adults with the adaptation of The Supernatural Academy book series and new sci-fi series Roswell Conspiracies.
