Canada’s Breakthrough Entertainment has inked a worldwide broadcast deal for animated comedy Rocket Monkeys with Nickelodeon (including the US) for a launch this spring.
The recently launched animated property, which is also the focus of a series of online games, is produced by Breakthrough in association with Teletoon Canada and animation studio Atomic Cartoons. The series (26×30) introduces the universe to brothers Gus and Wally, two hapless “monkeynauts” who cause more intergalactic calamity than they could ever prevent as they pursue important missions.
The show is created by Dan Abdo and Jason Patterson, and developed by Alex Galatis and Mark Evestaff (who also serves as the show’s producer).
Its Breakthrough exec producers include Joan Lambur, Peter Williamson and company co-managing director Ira Levy. Partial funding for Rocket Monkeys is provided by the Shaw Rocket Fund.
