Mercury Filmworks and Technicolor Team Up for Atomic Puppet
Technicolor and Mercury Filmworks have recently signed a partnership with Gaumont Animation in order to develop and produce a new animated comedy series titled ‘Atomic Puppet.’ The series will be making its mark all over the world via Disney XD in various parts of the world and in Canada via Teletoon Canada.
Atomic Puppet puts a hilarious new twist on the Superhero-and-his-sidekick theme, as it follows Model City’s premiere superhero Captain Atomic, who has been transformed into a sentient yet powerless puppet by his former sidekick Nuclear Boy. As Nuclear Boy turns into Model City’s most fearsome villain, Captain Atomic’s only hope of stopping the former protege and saving his city is by teaming up with his biggest fan Joey Felt, who is the only one who can reactivate the good Captain’s superpowers (by using him as a puppet.)
“The addition of Gaumont Animation as a co-producer and the caliber of broadcasters supporting the series are very satisfying validations of the time and creative energy Mercury and Technicolor have invested in Atomic Puppet,” said Clint Eland, president and exec producer of Mercury Filmworks.
