Perrine Gauthier’s two-year-old prodco La Cabane Productions has signed agreements with French network Canal+ and kids entertainment specialist CAKE for its new CGI series entitled Mush-Mush and the Mushables.
Co-developed with Belgium prodco Thuristar, the upper-preschool series will head into production early next year, with a release slated for 2019.
Mush-Mush will premiere on Canal+ channels including Piwi+ and Canal+ Family. VRT-Ketnet will also co-produce Mush-Mush in Dutch-speaking Belgium, while RTS (French-speaking Switzerland) and RTBF-OUFtivi (French-speaking Belgium) have pre-bought the show. CAKE is serving as co-producer and international distributor.
The 52 x 11-minute series follows a group of Mushable friends as they fulfill their roles as Guardians of the Forest using special powers. It is created by Belgian artist Elfriede do Rooster, and was initially pitched at Cartoon Forum last fall.
