Moonscoop has sold its animated comedy/action adventure series Hero:108 To Mexico’s Televisa channel. This follows sales to the UK’s GMTV, MBC in the Middle East, and Cartoon Network channels worldwide which co-produced the series.
Hero:108 is currently airing on Cartoon Network in the U.S. and UK, and other international territories including Latin America, Germany, Italy, CEE, Iberia, Middle East, Asia and Africa. Hero:108 has a big online following and the show producers have also been promoting the program to more than one million fans at over 50 anime conventions this past year. Playmates will launch the toy range this year.
Hero:108 follows the outrageous adventures of a group of brave young defenders determined to end a conflict between animals and humans in The Hidden Kingdom. The series features striking Asian-influenced character designs created by show creator Phoenix Tarng, who is also part of Gamania’s in-house creative development team.
The 52×11′ series will also benefit from a groundbreaking promotional platform, including a Massively Multi-Player Online Game (MMOG) developed by RedGate Games, a subsidiary of Gamania Digital Entertainment, one of the largest publishers of online multi-player games in Asia. The MMOG had a successful closed beta launch in May, and the Open Beta launches this month.
