LazyTown Creator Scheving Awarded in Mexico

By Iceland Review

Magnús Scheving, creator of the successful children’s television series LazyTown, received the second annual PROTOS Award from Universidad de Panamericana in Mexico City yesterday, one of the most highly respected universities in the country.

“It was very pleasing and a great honor, both for me personally and the LazyTown project as a whole,” Scheving told Fréttabladid.

People who are considered to have presented information to the public through the media in a positive and constructive way are presented with the PROTOS Award. LazyTown encourages children to exercise and adopt a healthy diet.

Scheving is just about to complete a world tour promoting LazyTown. “Among countries I visited were Australia and New Zealand and I predict that they will both become large markets for LazyTown.”

“I was also in Switzerland where I met with local health authorities and a triple Wimbledon champion, Boris Becker from Germany. He lives in Switzerland and is very interested in working with us towards a healthy lifestyle for children and teenagers in the country,” Scheving stated.

Today, Scheving will meet with agents in Hollywood to discuss the making of a LazyTown movie.
