French prodcuer Gaumont and Scholastic Entertainment have joined forces to co-develop and co-produce Rocket Park, an animated preschool series inspired by Down syndrome advocate, Sofia Sanchez.

The 11-minute episodes will be based on two Scholastic books that have been inspired by the 13-year-old Sanchez, You Are Enough and You Are Loved, both written by Margaret O’Hair and illustrated by Sofia Cardoso.

The show will focus on four kids who work together to help their community and in doing so “teach young viewers about the power of embracing and celebrating differences, accepting others and themselves, and loving friends and family for exactly who they are.”

Dublin-based sketch comedy and improv writing and performing duo Amy Stephenson and Shane Langan will serve as showrunners for the project.

Scholastic Entertainment and Gaumoint previously worked together on Stillwater, whihc is available on Apple TV+.
