Israeli and German networks have the green light DreamMarsa new live-action sci-fi show about eight teenagers who fly to Mars on a critical mission.

Aimed at older children and teens, the 20 x 22 minute series is set to debut on German channel KiKA and Israeli broadcaster HOT’s Zoom children’s channel in 2023.

It is a co-production between production teams STORYZ Productions, SKLAN&KA, SAMKA and German broadcasters NDR, HR, SWR and RBB, with Jetpack Distribution taking the international sales rights.

The series, which was picked up before production began, follows the teenagers as they prepare to settle on the Red Planet. Upon arrival, however, they find they’ve landed in the wrong place and are cut off from communication with Earth, just hours before their spacesuits’ electricity runs out and everyone dies.

DreamMars is filmed at the advanced research facility known as ‘Habitat’, established by the Israeli Space Agency in the Ramon Crater area, it is the first space simulation center in Israel, which replicates settlements on March.

Dominic Gardiner, Jetpack Distribution, commented: “This groundbreaking series appeals strongly to teens and space enthusiasts. We know space missions are of interest to kids around the world right now, and the production teams have created something to spark intrigue and cultivate that interest.
