Technicolor has pre-sold its new animated kids series Atomic Puppet (52 x 11) to France Televisions, which will air the show on its France 4 channel beginning in 2016. Currently in production, the show is co-developed and produced with Canada’s Mercury Filmworks and France’s Gaumont Animation. Atomic Puppet will premiere in Canada on TELETOON and in France on Disney XD, which will also bring the show to other global territories.
Atomic Puppet kicks off when Model City’s fearless superhero is transformed into a powerless puppet by his disgruntled sidekick, and the hero’s powers are accidentally transferred to his biggest fan: 12-year-old Joey Felt. Together, they form an awkward partnership as they strive to keep the city safe. The show is created by Mark Drop (Johnny Test) and Jerry Leibowitz (The Mouse and the Monster).
