MIPCOM is returning to Cannes for its first in-person event since the start of the pandemic. The TV market will be a little different in 2021, and not just because of COVID-19 screenings and vaccination requirements. The two-day MIPJunior, traditionally held at a nearby hotel, has been incorporated into the larger festival, which takes place October 11-14.

But those changes haven’t stopped the creators of children’s content from lining up new shows that they hope will make a splash at the commercial event, and beyond. These are some of the coolest new shows on our radar ahead of MIPCOM.
