Produced by award-winning production company, Red Kite Animation and Wendy Promotions Ltd (WPL) – a joint venture between Scandinavian media group Egmont and UK publisher DC Thomson, Wendy is a 3D adaptation of the successful European magazine of the same name.
Targeting six to nine year olds, the series was commissioned by European broadcasters ZDF and France Televisions. The show charts the adventures of teenage heroine, Wendy and focuses on her equestrian-centred life. Living on a stud-farm, complete with a riding school and stables, Wendy has become an accomplished rider and show jumper; her life is full of gossip, friendships and romances which are the main themes of the program.
Composed by Iain Cook of CHVRCHES and arranged and performed by David Simpson, Wendy ran for 26 x 30 minute episodes. David also provided additional music and diagetic cues throughout the series.
The music for Wendy is sweet and warm-hearted, tinged with alt-folk and country music. The series explores a wide range of moods, from determined horse-racing competitions to emotional scenes between family and friends… with plenty of funny moments in between!
