Cartoon Network Secures Mega Man Rights From DHX


Cartoon Network has recently inked a deal with DHX Media for the rights to air the new Mega Man series in the US. This new Mega Man series is an original co-production between DHX Media and Dentsu Entertainment USA, and will also air on DHX’s Family CHRGD channel in Canada.

The new Mega Man series is based on the iconic video game franchise from Capcom, using 3D CG animation in order to bring to life the cute, yet action-packed adventures of the blue bomber. The series will start production this summer at DHX’s Vancouver studio, with writing and executive producing duties being handled by Man of Action Entertainment (Ben 10, Generator Rext, Big Hero 6.)

The new Mega Man series is targeted towards kids aged 6 to 11, as well as their parents who grew up with the original NES or SNES games. As expected of a Mega Man show, the series will showcase new technologies and robots, but will also introduce Mega Man’s alter-ego, Aki Light, who is a normal, upbeat schoolboy robot armed with nano core technology that allows one to transform into the megapowered hero, Mega Man.

“We are thrilled that Cartoon Network has picked up the new Mega Man series for its US viewers. This deal points to the solid demand for our original kids’ content, and highlights the strength of our strategy of collaborating with leading industry peers such as Dentsu and Man of Action to refresh evergreen properties for today’s kids,” said DXH Media’s EP of Content, Ken Faier. “Further, we believe Mega Man‘s incredible heritage and proven popularity also positions the brand extremely well for longer term consumer product opportunities.”
