Nickelodeon Iberia Premieres 'The Bureau of Magical Things'


Nickelodeon Iberia debuted the first two episodes of the enchanting new live-action series The Bureau of Magical Things, created by Australian television producer Jonathan M. Shiff (H2O: Just Add Water), on Monday 3rd December 2018 at 19:05 on Nickelodeon Portugal and at 20:05 on Nickelodeon Spain (España)! Following the launch, fans can catch more brand-new episodes of The Bureau of Magical Things daily at 19:05 on Nick Portugal and at 20:05 on Nick España.

The Bureau of Magical Things is locally titled Agencia de Asuntos Mágicos in Spain and O Departamento Das Coisas Mágicas in Portugal.

Filmed in Brisbane and the Gold Coast of Australia, The Bureau of Magical Things combines magic, mystery, and a unique mythology to tell the story of Kyra, an ordinary teenage girl who is caught in a clash between an elf and a fairy then becomes magically transformed. As a “Tri-ling”—part human, part fairy, and part elf—Kyra teams with a group of magical teenagers and learns to use her newfound powers to keep the human world safe from the surprising, funny, and sometimes dangerous effects of magical chaos. But when these young guardians uncover a threat, humans, fairies, and elves must unite to save both their worlds!

The series stars Kimie Tsukakoshi (The Family Law) as Kyra, a confident teenage Tri-ling who exhibits powers of both fairies and elves; Mia Milnes as Lily, an optimistic and sweet fairy; Elizabeth Cullen as Imogen, a headstrong and ambitious elf; Julian Cullen as Darra, Imogen’s charming hipster elf brother; Rainbow Wedell (Terra Nova) as Ruksy, an orderly fairy and teacher’s pet; Jamie Carter (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) as Peter, Kyra’s longtime classmate and science fiction lover; Christopher Sommers (Hunters) as Professor Maxwell, a witty half-elf-half-human in charge of the local Magic School; Melanie Zanetti (The Leisure Class) as Orla, an elf agent working for the Department of Magical Intervention (DMI); and Nicholas Bell (I, Frankenstein) as Sean, director of the DMI and Lily’s father.

In the first half-hour launch episode, “A Magical Mishap,” ordinary teenager Kyra gets zapped when she touches a book that is the subject of a magical tug‐of‐war between a fairy, Lily, and an elf, Imogen. When Kyra wakes the next day, she can see and perform magic as a newfound Tri‐ling – part‐human, part‐fairy and part‐elf.

Nickelodeon has acquired the global rights to The Bureau of Magical Things (20x30'). The series made its debut on Nick USA on Monday 8th October 2018, followed by its debut on Nickelodeon in the UK and Ireland on Monday 5th November 2018, and is currently rolling out globally across Nickelodeon's channels and branded blocks in 170+ countries and territories.

The Bureau of Magical Things introduces a captivating fantasy world while promoting real world concepts like individuality, diversity and acceptance,” says Layla Lewis, Senior Vice President, Global Acquisitions and Content Partnerships for Nickelodeon. “We think kids everywhere will find something relatable in these characters’ journeys to finding their true selves, while learning to embrace and accept what makes them different.”

"Kyra es una adolescente normal... ¡hasta que un libro mágico cambió su vida para siempre! Un día cualquiera mientras paseaba, Kyra se encontró atrapada en mitad de una batalla entre un elfo y un hada. Justo en ese instante, una especie de encantamiento la convierte en un "Tribute-Ling"... ¡que no es otra cosa que un humano con los poderes de un hada y de un elfo! Ahora, Kyra necesita aprender a controlar sus poderes para poder proteger el mundo mágico junto a sus amigos."

Shiff Productions, financed with the support of Screen Australia, the Queensland Government through Screen Queensland and the City of Gold Coast and will be globally distributed by ZDF Enterprises.
