nelvana

Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana Enterprises and brand marketer of sports and entertainment cards Topps have recently entered into a partnership in order to produce and develop a new boys action series titled Mysticons.

Mysticons (26 x 22) is an animated series targeted towards kids aged 6 to 11 and produced by Nelvana Studio and written by veteran kids series writer Sean Jara (RedaKai, Hot Wheels: Battle Force 5, The League of Super Evil, Naturally Sadie).

Michael D. Eisner, who founded The Tornante Company, a privately held company that invests in, acquires, and operates companies in media and entertainment, acquired The Topps Company in 2007.

“We are thrilled to work with Corus Entertainment a globally renowned children’s broadcaster and producer,” said Eisner. “Nelvana has a strong history of success in building and launching hit boys action properties and the partnership with Topps sets the stage for Mysticons to be the next big global boys action franchise.”

Mysticons focuses on four regular kids in the quiet suburb of Castletown, who are called into action as the first line of defense against fire breathing dragons, evil knights, barbaric orcs, and other forces of evil under the command of a triumvirate of evil warlords bent on destroying mankind.

“We’re excited to be partnering with The Topps Company on a multi-platform series that has all the ingredients for success, including compelling characters and exciting stories,” said Doug Murphy, President of Corus Television. “Leveraging the Topps brand will enable us to build game play into the DNA of the series.”

A Mysticons trailer will be available during MIPTV at Nelvana Enterprises, Booth N6.04.
