Toronto, Canada-based Tricon Kids & Family has paired up with Wildseed Studios in the UK to co-produce new animated comedy Counterfeit Cat.
Commissioned by Disney XD EMEA and Teletoon in Canada, Counterfeit Cat is being developed by the two companies as a 26 x half-hour series and 11 x two-minute shorts. Targeting kids ages six to 12, the series follows Gark, a naive young alien looking to save the universe and anxious but vain housecat Max, whom Gark mistakes for an heroic tiger. Max, however, is more interested in saving himself than saving the world.
Production is getting underway on the series and shorts at Wildseed’s new studio in Bristol. Tricon International will be looking after global distribution across all platforms.
