Boomerang is traveling to the Dark Ages with the acquisition of My Knight and Me, a new comedy series distributed by leading international kids’ entertainment specialist CAKE. Created by renowned French producer TeamTO and Belgian producer Thuristar, My Knight and Me follows the adventures of a colorful and charismatic trio of knights in shining armor. The series had a strong debut in the United Kingdom earlier this year and has recently started airing on Boomerang in Africa.
My Knight and Me introduces audiences to loyal, street-smart Jimmy the Squire; his best friend, fun and daring Princess Cat; and his father Henri of Orange, a charmingly inept, but passionately chivalrous knight who might not be the most efficient protector of the realm but he sure is the funniest. Together, this knightly trio set out to make the Dark Ages a little brighter and a whole lot more fun!
A TeamTO Thuristar production, My Knight and Me was created and directed by Joeri Christiaen and coproduced with Canal+ Family and TéléTOON+ (France), SuperRTL (Germany) and VRT-Ketnet and RTBF-Ouftivi (Belgium).
My Knight and me airs Monday to Friday at 14:45 CAT on Boomerang, DStv Channel 302.
Discover a sneak peek of My Knight and Me, in which Henri of Orange tries to fight a giant Cyclops unsuccessfully… Until suddenly his son Jimmy turns up, as a giant!
