Toronto (November 19, 2021) – A&N Productions (founded by animator/producer Adam Yaniv), Aircraft Pictures (producers of the Academy Award® nominated animated feature film The Breadwinner and Emmy Award® nominated series Holly Hobbie) and Yeti Farm Creative (Pete the Cat, Hotel Transylvania) announced today the start of key animation on the new 2D-animated series, Summer Memories. Commissioned by WildBrain Television’s Family Channel, the 20 x half-hour episode series is distributed internationally by WildBrain Ltd.

Created by Adam Yaniv, Summer Memories began as a short film produced as part of the Nickelodeon Animated Shorts Program. The series follows the time-and-space-bending adventures of best friends Jason and Ronnie as Jason looks back on the most pivotal summer of his life (which was just a few weeks ago). Yaniv served as an animator and animation supervisor on such family features as Night at the MuseumHop and The Chronicles of Narnia, and currently serves as Supervising Producer on Nickelodeon’s Alvinnn!!! and the Chipmunks television series. Summer Memories stars the voice talents of Tricia Black (Second City, Baroness Von Sketch), Yaniv, Jonathan Langdon (No Tomorrow, Utopia Falls), Dani Kind (Workin’ Moms, Wynonna Earp) and Rakhee Morzaria (My Spy, Note to Self) and features guest stars including Jason Priestly (Beverly Hills 90210).

“I’m so proud to share our authentic and hilarious characters and their seriously massive totally the best you’ve ever seen life-changing friendship with everybody. I think kids and their families everywhere will get a kick out of it,” said Yaniv.

“Wholly original, yet full of relatable themes, Summer Memories is a wonderful take on childhood through the unbelievably talented and inventive lens of Adam Yaniv,” said Anthony Leo and Andrew Rosen, co-founders of Aircraft Pictures. “We are incredibly excited to be partnering with A&N Productions, Yeti Farm Creative and WildBrain Television in bringing this new series to life.”
