Zag/Toei Animation co-production about superheroes in Paris debuts on December 6

The American television network Nickelodeon announced on Wednesday that it will begin running Zag Entertainment and Toei Animation's CG animated series Miraculous Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir on December 6 at 12:00 p.m. EDT. New episodes will run on the channel every Sunday in the same time slot.

Nickelodeon describes the series:

The 26-episode series follows two junior high students, Marinette and Adrien, chosen to save Paris from the evil doings of a mysterious super-villain. The storylines and adventures are rich with friends, family, fun, secret identity, transformation, villains, fashion, creativity and more, all within the spectacular backdrop of Paris.

As secret identity superheroes Ladybug and Cat Noir, Marinette and Adrien must balance the crazy antics of normal teen life while stopping weekly baddies deployed by Hawk Moth to steal their powers and take over the world. With the help of their magical pets, and miraculous jewels, the duo transform into their alter egos, Ladybug and Cat Noir, and are granted powers of speed, strength, agility and a clear mind.

Zag entertainment founder and producer Jeremy Zag previously reported that Nickelodeon would air the series this fall.

The series is a co-production between Zag, Method Animation, Toei Animation and SamG, with the participation of TF1, Disney Channel EMEA, SK Broadband and AB droits audiovisuels.

Variety reported in 2012 that the 26-episode series, then known as Miraculous, has a budget of US$11.2 million and has a "colorful manga style."
