Nickelodeon Latinoamérica will debut Heidi, Bienvenida a Casa, a brand-new live-action teen series from Mondo TV, from early 2017!
Inspired by the 1880 novel Heidi by Johanna Spyri, Heidi, Bienvenida a Casa stars Chiara Francia (Patito Feo, Chica Vampiro) and tells the story of a young girl full of charm who leaves her mountain home for the city.
The series invites viewers to experience the fantasy world of Heidi in a modern day setting. The series is full of humor and songs and takes place in a colorful aesthetic and cinematic setting that creates a magical universe.
The 60×45-minute show, produced entirely in Argentina, is created by Argentinian author Marcela Citterio. The series is a co-production between Mondo TV subsidiary Mondo TV Iberoamerica and Javier Francia of Alianzas Producciones.
Matteo Corradi, Mondo TV's CEO, commented: "Heidi is one of the most successful books ever written, with timeless values and one of the most endearing protagonists in literature. The special and very talented team behind this new production has brought the story up to date while retaining its universal appeal. I am sure it will be a big hit with Nickelodeon viewers and around the world."
