The authors of Mimi and Lisa, the popular books and animated series for children, have a new animated series – the first in Slovakia made with 3D technology. The creative force behind the Websters’ story is producer and director Katarína Kerekesová. The central character of the series is six-year-old spider-girl Lisa, who is the usual culprit behind disasters in the Websters’ household. But other family members also keep up – her teenage brother Hugo, sclerotic Grandma, inventive Grandpa, and even dad who works in a logistics centre that supplies major food chains with tinned flies, and her mother who is ever so passionate about a healthy lifestyle. Well-known Slovak rapper VEC co-wrote the opening song. The screenplay was written by Zuzana Križková, Juraj Raýman, Zuzana Dzurindová, Peter Nagy and Katarína Kerekesová – and experienced Czech playwright Anna Vášová also joined the team. Boris Šima, who worked on the production of the Mimi and Lisa series, cooperated on the visual aspect of The Websters.
