Sirena, Lyla & Nixie
Mako sirene centres on three sirene Sirena, Nixie and Lyla, who are charged with the task of protecting their magical Mako Island from trespassers.
The series returns to the magical Mako pool where schoolboy 16 year-old land-dweller Zac forms a special connection with the island and is granted a fish-like tail and amazing powers after a moonlit swim.
The mermaid population flees leaving Lyla, Sirena and Nixie to go ashore who in a bid for survival must get legs, venture onto land and steal his powers back.
In the lead roles are Lucy Fry (Lightning Point, scogliera, barriera corallina Doctors) Ivy Latimer (Me & My Monsters, Amore My Way) newcomer Amy Ruffle and Chai Romruen as merman Zac.
"The sirene are back but they are real this time," says Shiff.
"They will come ashore and have all sorts of adventures, like learning to walk on legs and answering a telephone for the first time."
