Omnilab Media’s Ambience Entertainment, in partnership with Chocolate Liberation Front, has started animation on the Australian-bred TV series The Adventures of Figaro Pho.
The series, based on 26 shorts originally created for ABC TV in 2008 by Luke Jurevicius, will be produced at Iloura’s film and television VFX studio in Alexandria, NSW and is slated to air on ABC3 in 2012.
The new 13 x 30 minute episodes follow the mischievous Figaro Pho, who suffers every weird and wonderful phobia from A to Z.
