Indian animation studio Cosmos-Maya has partnered with Irish prodcos Dear Will and Piranha Bar to co-produce a new 3D-animated series called The Incredible Monsta Trucks.
The 52 x 11-minute adventure is geared around a group of trucks that race and grow together while battling against their villainous archenemy. Its co-producers are confident the show’s intrinsic toyetic potential will create licensing and merchandising opportunities, according to a statement from the companies.
Piranha Bar (MyaGo) will develop The Incredible Monsta Trucks using Epic Games’ Unreal Engine technology—joining a growing trend among studios to decrease costs while improving workflow.
This is the latest in a raft of recent deals signed by Cosmos-Maya, including a partnership with Jakarta-based Spectrum Film to co-produce new animated series Putra, and an agreement with WildBrain Spark to produce a third season of comedy Eena Meena Deeka.
