The Jim Henson Company is currently seeking partners for their new children’s animated series, ImaginOcean, which is based on the acclaimed Off-Broadway musical John Tartaglia’s ImaginOcean. The 52×11 musical cartoon will blend the real time puppeteering techniques that the Henson Digital Puppetry Studio became famous for with state of the art CG animation.
ImaginOCean follows the undersea adventures of a young fish named Dorsel, played by Tartaglia himself. The stories will be character driven and will blend comedy, music, and friendship with a socio-emotional curriculum that will help young viewers learn how to be responsible for their actions and choices.
ImaginOcean will be executive produced by TJHC CEO Lisa Henson and Halle Stanford, with Tartaglia, Jill Shinderman and Michael Shawn Lewis acting as executive producers. The Jim Henson Company will be meeting with potential partners at the MIPTV Market in Cannes next week.
