Team Spirit comes to graphic novels and animation from IDW

IDW has put the full force of the company’s publishing and entertainment operations into the development launch of Team Spirit, an original comedy for kids 6-11 created by Tshepo Moche, Raffaella Delle Donne, and Marc Dey, a trio of Cape Town, South Africa-based writer-producers who have gained industry recognition for handling the creative on behalf of a wide array of global animated successes for Disney, eOne, Baobab Studios, Wekids, Snipple Animation, Netflix, Cartoon Network/Boomerang, Cbeebies, Urucu Media, Zodiak Kids, Illuminated Films and Triggerfish Animation Studios.

Moche, Delle Donne and Dey are currently serving as the creative team behind the Disney+ preschool animated series Kiya and the Kimoja Heroes, a co-production with eOne Entertainment, Triggerfish, Frog Box, Entertainment Media, TeamTO and France Télévisions that was created by Marc Dey and Kelly Dillon.

Team Spirit follows the comedy adventures of a middle school girl who also happens to be a were-hyena and her best bud – a hulking dancing demon – who form their own cheer squad to show that despite their typical teen angst (and atypical supernatural oddities) they have enough Team Spirit to just about raise the dead.
