Produced by eOne, Triggerfish and Frog Box, in partnership with Disney Junior and France Télévisions, the series is based on an original concept from South African-based production company Triggerfish and developed for Television by Frog Box and eOne.

The characters for Kiya were created by Kelly Dillon and Marc Dey, then developed for television by Robert Vargas. The production features a diverse creative team, including writers, designers and composers from across Africa as well as France, the US and the UK. Kiya joins eOne’s successful slate of preschool properties that also includes award-winning shows “Peppa Pig,” “PJ Masks,” “Ricky Zoom” and “Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom.”
