Groupe PVP and Cyber Group Studios have inked a worldwide interactive license agreement with Zorro Productions Inc. for Zorro the Chronicles, the new CG-animated TV series that has brought new adventures featuring the famous masked hero to air in more than 100 territories on all continents.
“This is an important step for us as a company and I thank both John Gertz at Zorro Productions Inc. and Pierre Sissmann at Cyber Group Studios to have trusted us with this prestigious IP,” said Francois Trudel, Executive Producer and VP of International Affairs for Groupe PVP. “I will now be looking for international partners to pursue an ambitious creation plan linked to this great property, starting with meetings at the next Kidscreen Summit in Miami and Game Connection in San Francisco.”
The agreement will see Groupe PVP develop, alone or with partners, interactive games for top consoles as well as apps for mobile and tablet OS.
“Zorro is a brand whose interactive life started long ago with games for the Atari, Nintendo and other platforms. We are very excited to see that the new CG animated series, “Zorro the Chronicles” will now be adapted for the new consoles of the 21st century,” said John Gertz, President of Zorro Productions.
Currently available on Hulu in the US (in English and Spanish), Zorro the Chronicles is a 26 x 22 adventure-comedy series for kids 6-12 which follows the exploits of a teenage Zorro in a world populated with over 100 characters, featuring rich backgrounds and captivating music.
Pierre Sissmann, Chairman and CEO of Cyber Group, added: “Ahead of Zorro the Chronicles’ second season, it is a real pleasure to partner once again with Zorro Productions Inc. and Groupe PVP, to create groundbreaking interactive games using the assets we have created for the television series.”
