Technicolor and Mercury Introduces Atomic Puppet

Technicolor has recently announced an agreement with Canadian studio Mercury Filmworks in order to co-produce and co-develop a new kids’ animated TV series titled Atomic Puppet. The company is planning to present the new series to international buyers during the MIPCOM market in Cannes this year via the Buyers Club Level 01 in the Palais des Festivals.

Currently under development as a 52 x 11 package, Atomic Puppet will be targeting boys aged 6 – 11, and will focus on the action-packed yet hilarious adventures of Captain Atomic, Model City’s fearless protector, who is transformed into a powerless puppet by his disgruntled sidekick, while his powers were accidentally transferred to his biggest fan, the 12 year old kid Joey. Captain Atomic is then left with no choice but to team up with Joey in order to form an awkward and comedic duo that will become the city’s new superhero team.

“Mercury Filmworks is a brilliant animation producer and they completely understand the vision for Atomic Puppet,” says Steven Wendland, Technicolor’s VP of animation. “This series has all the elements that will appeal to our demographic—comedy, action, and super heroes —and we are excited to bring Atomic Puppet to the attention of international buyers at MIPCOM.”
