Among the new animated series premiering at NATPE will be Rat’s Amore from pasi (philippine animation studio, inc.). This is the first of several productions slated to come out of pasi’s recently formed original development department.
Created by Frank Saperstein and Philip J. Felix, Rat’s Amore is a buddy toon chronicling the lives and misadventures of two rats from Italy. The world class chefs travel from restaurant to restaurant across America in order to stay one step ahead of the Hit Cats sent by the dreaded Quattro Formaggio crime syndicate, which is after them for an innocent mistake they made back in Old Napoli.
A pilot episode is currently in production with plans for 52×11 episodes to follow.
