Thunderbirds are Go! WETA announced that ITV Studios will be working on a new Thunderbirds series and that it will debut on ITV in New Zealand and and UK’s CITV.

 

Iconic Series is Back After 50 Years for a 2015 debut on CITV

ITV Studios is to re-invent the Classic Thunderbirds series 50 years on from its first television debut.

ITV Studios and New Zealand based Pukeko Pictures, in collaboration with world-famous Weta Workshop (Avatar, King Kong, The Lord of the Rings) are to co-produce Thunderbirds are Go!(working title) a 26 x 30’ major new children’s series set to debut on ITV and UK’s CITV Channel in 2015.

This re-invention of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson’s iconic series will be produced using a unique mix of CGI animation and live-action model sets. Showcasing Pukeko Pictures’ and Weta Workshop’s ground-breaking creative and technical excellence, it will deliver a whole new level of action-adventure animation for today’s audience, whilst also affectionately paying tribute to the legacy of model locations from the classic series.
