BEJUBA! ENTERTAINMENT BRINGS ANIMATED COMEDY FROM CHINA AND LIVE-ACTION FANTASY FROM AUSTRALIA TO MIPCOM 2008
New Children’s Series Available Worldwide
TORONTO & LOS ANGELES -- (September XX, 2008) – Bejuba! Entertainment has set MIPCOM JUNIOR 2008 for the worldwide debut to two new completed children’s series, it was announced by Bejuba! Entertainment President Tatiana Kober.
Stone Age Forest a.k.a. NoNo Forest (26 x 12 min.) is a hilarious new animated series produced by China’s Shiao Animation that harkens back to the antics of the classics with dialogue-free slapstick comedy. It’s a time before civilization, where survival is key. But for our hero, Abu, and the other cavemen and animal creatures, life is not always easy. In fact, it’s downright funny and rather outrageous humor that will appeal to all ages. In addition to 12-minute episodes, Stone Age Forest will also be available in a shortened version.
The Fairies (52 x 30 min, and format rights) is a live-action musical series, unashamedly for girls. Designed for preschoolers, The Fairies stars Harmony and Rhapsody, two young adult fairies who explore Fairyland through play and adventure with their days full of magic, friends, giggles, singing and dancing. The series also boasts five one-hour specials, an immense licensing campaign, and a third season which is about to be green lit for production. Already a hit on Channel 7 and Nickelodeon in Australia, Bejuba! is offering the series at MIPCOM as well as selling the format rights in certain foreign language territories.
Bejuba! represents The Fairies TV series for the world excluding Australia, the Americas, Spain, Portugal, Middle East, Scandinavia and Eastern Europe,
“The addition of these two terrific series to our catalogue will ensure that we’ll be able to delight kids of all ages. We’ve got a preschool series for girls which is magical, and a prehistoric comedy series for all ages which is hysterical,” said Kober.
Jen Watts commented “Tatiana’s two little girls fell in love with The Fairies TV show and showed Tatiana the magic ofThe Fairies for little girls. Because of this, I know my TV show is in the very best of hands.”
Kun Wu, Managing Director of Shiao Animation commented “We are very excited that Bejuba! will be premiering Stone Age Forest at MIPCOM JUNIOR. This is our first of hopefully many series and we’re excited with the enthusiasm that the series has already been met with.”
