The baseball-themed animated comedy series D’Myna Leagues from Studio B is aiming for the bleachers with a U.S. and Canadian home video deal struck with Trinity Home Video and 2450 Visual Ent. The show airs on Canada’s YTV, which is airing a one-hour special titled Rocky Racoon vs D’Mynas on July 18 at 3 pm (all time zones).
D’Myna Leagues follows the adventures of a team of misfit baseball-playing birds as it deals with issues associated with growing up and spoofs everything from movie and sports agents to announcers and talk show hosts. The show, which combines hand-drawn characters and digital 3D backgrounds, is distributed for television broadcast by Sony Pictures Television International and can be seen in 18 countries around the world.
In the double header TV special, The Myna birds take on the unsavory Rocky Racoon when Reggie Stainback agrees to throw the series to pay off his debt. In part two, Ebbet goes up against Rocky in a winner-takes-all competition at the video arcade in a desperate bid to release Reggie from his debt.
Vancouver-based Studio B’s other award-winning shows include Yvon of the Yukon, What About Mimi? and Being Ian. The company’s international co-productions include Something Else and Yakkity Yak, which air on Nicktoons U.S. and TELETOON in Canada. In addition to a full slate of service work, Studio B is also in production on 26 half-hour episodes of Class of the Titans for TELETOON. The company is on the web at www.studiobproductions.com.
