Canadian indie producers Seven24 Films and marblemedia are to jointly develop Little Wombat as a preschool animated TV series.
The project, based on the Little Wombat books by Charles Fuge, will comprise 13 half-hours about the mischievous marsupial Little Wombat and his friends Mouse and Koala.
Seven24 Films will also include an online and mobile extension for Little Wombat, in partnership with cross-platform producer marblemedia.
“We’re pleased to be developing this series, and look forward to telling Little Wombat’s timeless stories through charming animation,” Jordy Randall, executive producer at Seven24 Films, said in a statement.
International distribution and format sales will be handled by Distribution360, which is jointly run by marblemedia and Seven24 Films.
