CCI Entertainment to distribute Teenage Fairytale Dropouts worldwide
Press release from CCI Entertainment
CCI Entertainment has signed on for the worldwide distribution of the recently green-lit animated comedy series, “Teenage Fairytale Dropouts”.
An international co-production between Anima Estudios, SLR Productions, Home Plate Entertainment and Telegael, “Teenage Fairytale Dropouts” is a 52 x 11 minute series that tells the story of Jeremiah, Fury and Trafalgar, three best friends and second generation fairytale characters who are determined to be themselves – no matter what their well-known fairytale parents think about it.
“The series offers a great fun premise that will have plenty of appeal for broadcasters. We are thrilled to be representing it internationally and also to be able to work with such a stellar production team” said EVP of Distribution at CCI Entertainment, Jill Keenleyside.
Jeremiah maybe the son of The Giant from Jack and the Beanstalk but that doesn’t mean he’s going to follow in his father’s enormous footsteps, stomping villages and eating people. Besides, he still has some growing up to do, literally. Jeremiah may be a tween but he’s still waiting for his “giant” growth spurt.
And Fury, maybe the daughter of the Tooth Fairy but dental remuneration is not in her future — “way too creepy”. Plus, there’s the embarrassing fact that her fairy wings haven’t…ah… sprouted yet. Then there’s Trafalgar, one of Merlin’s many nephews, who actually has potential — if he just didn’t lack so much focus in his hocus pocus.
Together this trio is out to prove that even in the wacky, up-side-down, unexpected world of Fairytale Estates – you can be your own giant, fairy or wizard – as long as you have your friends along for the “souped-up” pumpkin carriage ride of your life.
A high-definition flash-animated series, “Teenage Fairytale Dropouts” is slated for broadcast release in 2013.
