French prodco Alphanim, Italian studio Calidra and the Pagot family have entered into an exclusive agreement to develop and produce a new CGI series based on the Calimero franchise.

Alphanim is also acquiring the existing 130 half-hours and 290 episodes of programming for international distribution in both 13-minute and half-hour formats about the little black chicken that wears an eggshell on his head.

The series based on the Italian/Japanese animated character, originally created by Pagot, has aired in more than 79 countries since its first appearance in 1963.

Calimero is the first of a new series of projects handpicked by Alphanim as an effort to develop its international brands.
