Sally Bollywood admires and respects her father, Harry, who is the local gumshoe. The girl knows well that the work of a private detective can be a rough, dangerous, and altogether quite a fun job. As such, Sally pledges to put her own super-snooping skills to good use by forming SBI (Sally Bollywood Investigations), a detective agency for kids. Sally Bollywood, as an animated comedy, has been airing throughout Europe, Australia, and Asia for a few years now [past A.I. news: "Sally Bollywood Animation News" (06/2010)]. Sally searches for lost homework assignments and settles disputes among her adolescent friends, but each comical interlude is often a little more curious and a little more precarious than the last.
"The re-commission not only demonstrates the success of the series itself, but it is also a lot of fun to write and produce."
The second season of Sally Bollywood is currently in pre-production and includes an additional fifty-two episodes (x11 minutes). This will bring the total episode order of the animated television series to 104 episodes.
According to Zodiak Kids, delivery of the EUR 5.3m ($6.7m) budget series is currently scheduled for early 2013.
Sally and Dowee aren't always on top of things, but they certainly try their best. Sally's athletic and acrobatic approach to chasing down a bad guy is kind of different from Dowee's (who would prefer the use of a gadget to running and jumping over a bike rack any day), but the duo make a good team, and must sometimes rely on the experience of Sally's father to bail them out if the kids get in over their head (which happens more often than not, it would seem). Sally Bollywood's second season has already been presold to Super RTL (Germany), Disney Channel (France; Germany), France Televisions (France), and Network 7 (Australia). New broadcast additions include CSC Media's PopGirl TV (UK), which has acquired both seasons of the cartoon.
