DHX Media has started production on Supernoobs, a 2D-animated core-kids comedy commissioned by Teletoon Canada and acquired by Cartoon Network US.
The series, aimed at kids six to 11, is being produced by DHX’s Vancouver studio.
Supernoobs, created by Scott Fellows (Johnny Test), portrays the Super-Tastic-Supernoobs amid the evils of the universe and the evils of adolescence.
DHX Media has the worldwide TV, licensing and merchandising rights, excluding the Canadian and US broadcast rights.
The seemingly ever-growing Halifax-based company has closed a number of business deals as of late, recently receiving approval from the CRTC to take over the Family Channel. DHX also acquired Degrassi franchise producer Epitome Pictures this spring for CDN$33 million. Epitome recently started production on its first series following the acquisition, a live-action teen drama titled Open Heart.
