New Animated Series, Mutant Busters, Debuts This Month
This coming Saturday, October 24, Neox Kidz’ animated comedy series Mutant Busters will be launching its first webisode via Atresmedia Television, followed by regular airings of its 52 episode library on October 31st and every Saturday onwards.
Mutant Busters was developed in collaboration with toy manufacturer Famosa, animation studio Kotoc, and kid’s entertainment company Planeta Junior. The story is set in a post apocalyptic world where the earth has been severely contaminated, with toxic gas setting off a series of explosions that has divided the planet into two regions: one inhabited by humans in The Resistance and another occupied by former humans turned into monsters by the toxic gas covering the entire planet.
Mutant Busters will be supported by a multiplatform campaign that includes apps and augmented reality programs, with the last 3 minutes of each episode capable of being broadcast independently as a webisode.
Eduardo Garagorri, Famosa CMO, adds “Famosa wants to be a part of children’s entertainment. Seeing how the Mutant Busters action figures come to life on the screen is very exciting, and another step forward in the development of our brands and the way we tell their stories. Children are going to love the adventures of the Mutant Busters, they’re full of action, team spirit, battles, mutants, incredible scenes, jokes… everything that kids want from their ideal animation series. We’ve had a lot of fun in the creative process.”
Freddy Córdoba, Kotoc CEO and series director chipped in: “We created Mutant Busters like a milkshake of frenetic action and cheeky comedy. No child’s going to be able to resist.”
For José Antonio Antón, director of programming and TDT channels at Atresmedia Televisión, “It’s a luxury for Atresmedia Televisión to have a production on the scale of Mutant Busters as Neox Kidz’ star series. We know it’s going to be an unprecedented success thanks to the work of a very intense collaboration between all the partners involved.”
