Toronto, Canada-based producer and distributor Portfolio Entertainment has made a trio of global broadcasting deals for its animated series Freaktown.
Aimed at kids ages six to 11, the 26 x half-hour series has sold to Sony Pictures for its UK channel Kix, while Denmark’s DR acquired the show for its DR ULTRA Channel. Disney has also picked up the series for its channels in India.
The deals follow previously inked ones with Cartoon Network in Asia Pacific (Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Australia and New Zealand), Disney Southeast Asia, ABC Australia and Turner’s Kids Networks in EMEA, which picked up the series for Boing in France and its French-speaking territories in Europe and Africa.
Commissioned by Teletoon Canada, Freaktown follows skeleton Ben Bones and his equally freaky friends as they protect their town from Princess Boo Boo the Bouncy of Sweetlandia. The concept was created by Peter Ricq and Philippe Ivanusic (The League of Super Evil).
