Mercury, Technicolor Signs Development deal with Teletoon Canada for Atomic Puppet
Canadian studio Mercury Filmworks and Paris-based Technicolor have just announced a newly inked development deal with TELETOON Canada for a new animated comedy series titled “Atomic Puppet.” The two studios and the network will be working together in order to co-develop the 2D animated series, which is aimed towards kids aged 6 to 11.
Atomic Puppet, which was created by Mark Drop (Matt Hatter Chronicles, Jake and the Never Land Pirates) and Jerry Leibowitz (The Mouse and the Monster) focuses on Model City’s greatest superhero, who is transformed into a powerless puppet by his disgruntled sidekick – with his super powers accidentally transferred to his biggest fan, the 12 year old Joey Felt. Together, they form an awkward and comedic partnership that may prove to be Model City’s only line of defense against the forces of evil.
““Atomic Puppet is just the kind of quirky, high-octane comedy that resonates with fans of TELETOON,” said Alan Gregg, Director, Original Content, TELETOON Canada. “We’re delighted to join forces with the highly-talented teams at Mercury Filmworks and Technicolor.”
