CGI-animated series The Adventures of Figaro Pho, from Australian studio Chocolate Liberation Front (CLF), is at the center of new global broadcasting deals and a new iOS and Android mobile game that was created in-house by CLF.
The series has sold to Canal+, HBO Czech, BBC Kids Canada & Cartoon Network South and Latin America. DVD deals are also rolling out in Australia and in selected territories across Europe.
The Figaro Pho: Creatures & Critters game, meanwhile, offers 42 levels and is the first of three Figaro Pho touchscreen action puzzle games distributed by ABC Commercial. The rest will also roll onto the market this year.
Since its Halloween launch on ABC3 in Australia this past October, the show won two Kidscreen Awards in New York in February for Best Animation and Best Design. It is the brainchild of creator and director Luke Jurevicius, and is co-produced by Chocolate Liberation Front and Ambience Entertainment. The series follows the adventures of a character that has every phobia from A to Z.
In related news, Chocolate Liberation Front will be heading to MIPTV next month with a new preschool series, Fantastic Forest, with Canadian partner CCI Entertainment.
