Cake Entertainment has sold the German broadcast rights to the animated comedy series Angelo Rules to Super RTL.
The broadcaster will air the 78 seven-minute episodes in the 3D-animated series about a 12 year old who tries to control his life using elaborate strategies he bases on his observations of human behavior. The series is based on the books by Sylvie de Mathuisieulx and Sebastien Diologent.
Cake co-produces the series with Paris-based animators TeamTO.
‘Angelo Rules is a really strong property, being both the most viewed show at MIPCOM Junior 2009 and winning the Pulcinella Award for its original concept and charismatic hero,’ says Ed Galton, managing director of Cake. ‘With Angelo Rules and Hareport both doing well in the international marketplace, we’re looking forward to creating more shows of this standard with TeamTO.’
