Teaser unveiled for Late Late Show star Adam King's animated series
The show is inspired by and stars Adam.
Irish animation studio Kavaleer Productions has revealed a first look at their animated series inspired by and starring Late Late Show favourite Adam King.
Titled Adam ❤ Adventure, the project was previously announced earlier in the year, with the show being described as a preschool adventure-comedy series set in space with an environmental slant.
The new teaser sees Adam floating out of bed on a spaceship and getting ready to embark on a new adventure.
The 2D animation will feature comedy-themed quests and will depict the show's hero on a mission to help aliens around the galaxy solve problems - usually of their own making - using his space-smarts and altruistic personality.
It will be the first Irish children’s programme to feature a wheelchair user as a protagonist.
The show began development in April and is currently being pitched to potential broadcasters and investors at the 2021 edition of the Cartoon Forum in Toulouse in France.
Adam's father David was in attendance at the forum to represent Adam and the project.
A fantastic first day of #CartoonForum in Toulouse pitching 'Adam ❤️ Adventure!'. We were thrilled to have @DavidKingIRL, Adam King's dad @AdamKingIRL join us for the pitching process and to represent Adam and their family. The enthusiasm from the King's has been inspiring 🚀🎉 pic.twitter.com/NhqSNU3bLX

In June, David said of the show: "We believe in the importance and power of representation of difference in the stories we tell our children. That is why we are thrilled that Adam, our beloved son and a child with additional needs, is going to be the star of this wonderful cartoon.
"Through this cartoon, we hope other children and families will benefit from the power of seeing difference represented in the wonderful stories and characters of Adam ❤ Adventure!"
When Adam appeared on last November's The Late Late Toy Show, the young boy from Cork told Ryan Tubridy about his love for all things intergalactic, all while blessing the audience with a "virtual hug".
Earlier this year, Adam made a guest appearance again on the Late Late Show after he received a personalised letter from US President Joe Biden - alongside the gift of American and Irish flags that were onboard missions to space.
