Heading into MIPCOM, channelzero ent. has just signed a deal with AGOGO Corp. to produce three half-hour episodes of the series SoSophie, starring the voice of Carmen Electra. While no animation has yet been seen, busty Sophie has been building somewhat of a fan base by appearing in Animation Magazine and at various trade shows over the past year.
SoSophie tells the story of a teenage girl and her relationships as she struggles to find out who she is and who she wants to be. And she does all this while racing motorcycles and jumping over burning cars.
Production has already begun on the first of the three episodes and will appear at NATPE in January. Each installment will continue a single storyline and will be released as a direct-to-video feature in the fall of 2004.
Carmen Electra, who followed in Pamela Anderson’s footsteps as a Baywatch babe, again takes a cue from the Stripperella star’s career with her turn as the voice of the sexiest redhead toon since Jessica Rabbit.
The show’s creator, Dave Warren, will be at MIPCOM in Cannes next week to meet with buyers and distributors.
