As usual, BRB Intenacional will again be at this year’s MIP-TV, with its full licensing and merchandising catalogue. In Cannes, at the Booth R 35.16, BRB will be presenting the latest news surrounding its major properties, with Bernard, Iron Kid, The Imp and Angus & Cheryl leading the way:

Papawa (104x7’ or 52x13’ HD Cut Out TV Series, co-produced by Screen 21, BRBInternacional,2Minutes,TVC): Fame, love, money, doesn’t matter what you want, come to Papawa, the island of your dreams and your dreams will come true... unless you meet its inhabitants, who could turn your dreams into your worst nightmare. For more information, see

Angus&Cheryl (104x2’, 3D HD Production, non dialogue slapstick comedy, co-produced by Screen 21, BRB Internacional, Tuba Entertainment, and TVC): It started such a long time ago before the chicken or the egg, the half-full or half-empty glass…He is Angus –simple and direct-. She is Cheryl –Complex and devious-. Definitely, it’s not black vs white but blue vs pink. It’s all about girls vs boys. Non verbal slapstick comedy.

The Imp (65 x 90”, 3D HD TV Series, co-produced by Red Kite, Screen 21, and TVC): Short, cute and impossibly evil. It’s a light hearted show. Okay, it’s a show with a megalomaniac bent on evil, The Imp and a long –suffering Bob. The Imp is constantly trying to unleash a terrifying evil upon the world. The only good news is he hasn’t got a clue what’s he’s doing.

Bernard (104x3’ or 26x13’, High Definition 3D, co-produced by Screen 21, BRB Internacional, RG, EBS, M6): The funniest polar bear on television is back. He still wants to learn, and he still wants to travel… but about all, there are too many misadventures left for him to star in. If anything can go wrong, it will be worse if Bernard’s involved. It’s bound to be a disaster.

Iron Kid (26x30’, 3D, co-produced by BRB, Screen 21, Designstorm, Daiwon, Manga,TVE): In a futuristic world, young Marty chances upon a bionic arm which endows him with superhuman powers. He suddenly becomes the Iron Kid, cyborg heir to the legendary Eon, original owner of the arm and heroic victor of the Robot Wars. An action adventure in spectacular 3D. Airing now.
