Canadian indie producer CCI Entertainment and US-based brand management firm Evolution are partnering on an animated series created by Maggie and the Ferocious Beast creator Michael Paraskevas and Judy Paraskevas.
The co-venture agreement will see the development of Taffy Saltwater, an animated series to include cross-platform content and a merchandise and licensing program.
As part of the deal, Evolution will handle licensing and retail opportunities globally for Taffy Saltwater, while CCI Entertainment will executive produce and distribute the series.
The proposed animated series for kids four to eight portrays a vivacious girl named Taffy Saltwater and her comical collection of beach buddies.
Taffy Saltwater will debut in a hardcover picture book format in spring 2013, as part of a deal with Michael Paraskevas and Random House Children’s Publishing.
The future cross-platform property will be unveiled at Licensing show next week, with an anticipated 2014 TV launch.
