Toronto’s Epic Story Media has teamed up with Cyprus-based prodco Outfit7 to co-develop CG-animated series Talking Tom Heroes: Suddenly Super.
A spinoff of Outfit7′s flagship Talking Tom & Friends brand, this new comedy stars a group of animals who transform into superheroes. The partners are seeking distributors and broadcasters, but no details on the show’s format or expected delivery date were available at press time.
Epic has been working as the brand’s US and Canadian licensing agent since 2020, and recently signed a new consumer products deal with Lukis Global Corp (food, apparel, jewelry and health & beauty products) in the US. It has also tapped fledgling toyco HUGE! Play to launch an animatronic toy based on the the brand. GameBud Talking Tom (pictured) will be available for presales in Q4 this year, and is the first product from the new Rhode Island-based toyco, which launched in 2020.
