Canada’s Mercury Filmworks and Paris-based Technicolor have struck a development deal with Teletoon Canada for the animated comedy TV series Atomic Puppet.
The new series is the brainchild of TV writer Mark Drop of Matt Hatter Chronicles and Jake and the Never Land Pirates fame and writer/creator Jerry Leibowitz (The Mouse and the Monster).
The prodcos and broadcaster will co-develop Atomic Puppet as a 2D-animated series targeting kids ages six to 11. It follows the superhero team of a 12-year-old boy and a puppet.
Mercury Filmworks and Technicolor will be presenting Atomic Puppet at next week’s Kidscreen Summit to potential global broadcast partners.
