Paris-based Mediatoon Distribution has forged a global distribution deal with indie French prodco 4.21 Productions for its new 52 x 11-minute animated comedy series The Crumpets.
Currently in production, the series was introduced at this week’s International Animation Film Market (MIFA) and has been commissioned by French channel Canal+ Family.
The Crumpets follows the whimsical adventures of Lil’one, the youngest member of a large eccentric family, who has a special relationship with his Gran Ma.
Mediatoon plans to launch the series at MIPCOM 2014.
The deal comes on the heels of Mediatoon’s recent sales in Latin America to Ecuador TV and Brazil’s TV Cultura. It’s also expanded its catalogue through partnerships with additional independent producers including Haut & Court, Bayard, Les Films du Triangle, Toposodo and various Japanese manga producers.
