Classic Media has bought international distribution rights to 52 11-minute episodes of My Life Me, a new animated series for tweens co-produced by CarpeDiem Film & TV in Canada and ODM in France.
The deal includes licensing and merchandising for the series, which is set to launch this year on Teletoon Canada and France Televisions and Canal J in France.
My Life Me is a fast-paced animated comedy aimed at kids 8-12 about four characters trying to make sense of tween life. The project was co-created by J.C. Little, Cindy Filipenko and rising manga star Svetlana Chmakova, who found success with the top selling Tokyopop graphic novel Dramacon.
The brand has a strong online component with a fully interactive website based on the themes from the show. Interactive elements allow aspiring viewers to create their own manga using either online tutorials or actual clips from the series which they can reinvent and share with friends. The site also offers games including an innovative interactive game based on social conflict resolution.
