Global entertainment company DQ Entertainment and Foothill Europe Limited have announced an agreement to develop, co-produce and distribute CG-animated buddy comedy Raz & Benny. The multi-faceted agreement covers development, financing, production and distribution for the series as well as exploitation of ancillary rights. The partners will kick off their efforts by debuting a promo produced by DQ at the MIPCOM market.
Jo Kavanagh-Payne, Managing Director of Foothill Europe commented, “We have long admired DQ’s work and have been seeking just the right project on which to work with them. We are delighted that we finally get the opportunity on Raz & Benny.”
The 52 x 11 3D CG show is created by U.K.-based director Simon Hodgkiss of Rockkiss DME and follows two mice whose ambitions are bigger than their brains, but whose good luck is as endless as their friendship. With their eccentric pal Lilly, dare-devil Raz and cautious Benny are always off on one adventure or another–whether posing as international spies, scuba-diving submarine rescuers or jungle explorers.
