Canada’s Mercury Filmworks and Paris-based Technicolor have announced a development deal with TELETOON Canada for the new animated comedy series, Atomic Puppet. The studios and network will co-develop the 2D animated series for kids 6-11, which was created by TV toon writer Mark Drop (Matt Hatter Chronicles, Jake and the Never Land Pirates) and writer/creator Jerry Leibowitz (The Mouse and the Monster).
The humorous show kicks off when Model City’s most fearless superhero is transformed into a powerless puppet by his disgruntled sidekick—and his powers are accidentally transferred to his biggest fan, 12-year old Joey Felt. Together they form an awkward and comedy partnership in an attempt to become the city’s greatest superhero duo.
“Atomic Puppet is just the kind of quirky, high-octane comedy that resonates with fans of TELETOON,” said Alan Gregg, Director, Original Content, TELETOON Canada. “We’re delighted to join forces with the highly-talented teams at Mercury Filmworks and Technicolor.”
