World Premiere for Thunderbirds Are Go! Reboot
The upcoming 2014 edition of MIPJunior's world tradeshow of kid's content runs October 11 and 12, just ahead of global entertainment content tradeshow #MIPCOM, set for October 13 to 16th in Cannes. Both MIPJunior and MIPCOM are organized by ReedMIDEM.
Here are a few more details from the press release:

*The show is based around International Rescue, a high-tech global rescue service run by the Tracy family, which each week comes to the aid of those in peril or threatened by the forces of evil.
*The new 26 x 30’ series will bow on ITV and CITV Channel in the UK in spring 2015. ITV Studios Global Entertainment distributes it internationally.
* The new incarnation is using a mix of CGI animation and live-action miniature sets, an update from the original series which was shot using a combination of puppets, scale models and special effects,
