Seven picks up Teenage Fairytale Dropouts
Press release from Adele Feletto Publicity
Australia’s most-watched broadcast television network, the Seven Network, has picked up the international co-production, Teenage Fairytale Dropouts for broadcast in 2013.
The 52 x 11 minute series between Anima Estudios, SLR Productions, Home Plate Entertainment and Telegael 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.
“We are thrilled this truly global co-production has been picked up by the Seven Network for Australian broadcast. Aussie kids will connect with the series – it is fun and quirky. It is a fresh spin on timeless classic characters that we all know and love,” said Executive Producer and CEO of SLR Productions, Suzanne Ryan.
Jeremiah may be 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 may be 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 international broadcast release in 2013.
CCI Entertainment recently signed on for the international distribution of the series.
