MIPCOM: Breakthrough and Ellipsanime Announce Post-Betty Plans

After bringing its hit Atomic Cartoons co-production, Atomic Betty, to the market, Breakthrough Animation is partnering with Ellipsanime to launch a new Franco-Canadian 3D-animated series titled MISS BG. Adapted from the acclaimed 12-volume Gudule & les Bebes book series penned by Fanny Joly and illustrated by Roser Capdevilla, the 52×12 series follows MISS BG (short for Big Girl), a precocious eight-year-old who teaches her younger brother the ways of the world in her own bossy way.

The series is a co-production between Breakthrough Animation, Ellipsanime, TVO, TFO (Canada) and France 5 and Def2Shoot, with assistance from the Shaw Fund, CTF, Telefilm and CNC. Breakthrough Animation’s managing director Kevin Gillis and Ellipsanime’s managing director Robert Rea, Ira Levy, Marie-Pierre Moulinjeune and Peter Williamson will act as exec producers and Philippe Vidal is the director of the new project.
