Nelvana to Showcase Zack and Deuce at the MIPTV
At this year’s MIPTV, Nelvana will be presenting a new animated series titled Zack & Deuce, which is already under production and is based on the book “The Day My Butt Went Psycho.” by Andy Griffiths. The series consists of 52 x 11 minute episodes and is targeted towards kids aged 6 to 11.
Zack and Deuce follows the story of a boy named Zack, and his best friend Deuce, who is actually his newly detached posterior. Together, Zack and Deuce have a tendency to go on outrageous adventures while navigating a world where humans and their detached butts live side by side, sharing the same movie theatres, squabbling over the same parking spots, and swooning over celebrities and cele-butt-ies. But some butts are up to no good. Our hero Zack keeps the world safe from double-cheeked bad guys and dreams of becoming the greatest butt fighter of all time. And having a genuine butt in your corner—as your best butt friend forever—can be quite an advantage, especially when it comes to battling the bad butts.
Zack and Deuce is a Canadian-Australian co-production from Nelvana Limited and Studio Moshi, in association with Scholastic Entertainment Inc. Commissioning broadcasters include Teletoon (Canada) and the Nine Network (Australia) and ABC (Australia). In some territories, including Australia, the series will be released as The Day My Butt Went Psycho.
