Australian transmedia company Chocolate Liberation Front and Omnilab Media’s Ambience Entertainment are joining forces to co-produce a full series of The Adventures of Figaro Pho.
The Adventures of Figaro Pho is the brainchild of creator and director Luke Jurevicius, who first introduced Figaro in 2008 as a series of shorts produced for ABC TV. The Figaro Pho original shorts claimed three awards at last year’s Kidscreen Awards, including Best Animated Series in the family category.
The new 13 x half-hour CGI-animated series will follow the titular character, which has every phobia from A to Z.
ZDF Enterprises has secured the series’ distribution rights for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, while D360 has all rights for Canada. ABC Commercial, which is also the distributor of the original shorts Figaro Pho, holds distribution rights for the rest of the world including the US, Australia, Asia and South America.
