Lionel Marty, Managing Director of APC Kids says: “The mix of clay and 3D animation in Fox & Hare creates a series with a distinctive look and feel. Combined with the universal theme of friendship and community, we are delighted that new global broadcasters are partnering with us to bring audiences into the world of this fun new show.”
