New Delhi, May 19 (IANS) With its newly-launched mythological animated series 'Little Krishna', a BIG Animation production, kid's entertainment channel Nick is attempting to widen its viewership in India by targeting family audience instead of just the kids.

'Animation by default is considered to cater to kids' space. But 'Little Krishna' is our attempt to make it a family entertainment show. Whether it is children, their parents, grandparents - it is a show for everyone,' Ashish S.K., CEO of BIG Animation, a subsidiary of Reliance Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group (R-ADAG), told IANS.

'Everyone positions animation as a kids' genre - but it isn't really so. Only time will change people's perception that animation is just for kids as the trend has just caught on in India,' he added.

'Little Krishna', a 13-episode series in English and Hindi launched May 11, is a co-creation between BIG Animation and The Indian Heritage Foundation, promoted by International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) Bangalore.

According to Nina Elavia Jaipuria, senior vice president and general manager, Nick India, the series is expected to find a huge consumer base across all age groups in the country.

Talking about the high points of the series, she said: 'It has compelling narrative, endearing character Krishna, his various facets like being a prankster, superhero, a musician - all captured into one for universal appeal and also the fact that it has world class quality animation.'

The series has been written by Emmy award winning international writer Jeffrey Scott and airs on Nick Monday-Friday at 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.
