Foothill Entertainment Inc., has joined with India’s Storywalker Designs, creators of the popular app Storywalker 365, to develop, finance and exploit the new series Danny and the Dinogons. Intended as a CGI preschool sitcom that celebrates family, diversity and kindness, the series debuts at MIPCOM this month. The show is about the not so normal life of young Danny, growing up in a blended, extended, mixed-up family of Dinosaurs and Dragons in the suburbs.
Synopsis: When your dad is a Dinosaur and your mum is a Dragon, what do you get? Danny Dinogon! With pretty weird parents you’d think Danny would be a mixed-up kid, right? Nope! Danny LOVES being a Dinogon and his friends think it’s kinda cool, too. Do you know anyone who can burp smoke and fly? He hasn’t quite got the hang of fire breathing yet, but his Grandpa says it’ll happen soon if he keeps practising. His Gran and Grandpa live with him along with some crazy aunts and uncles, and a lot of brothers and sisters!
“Danny & the Dinogons immediately struck us as a rich, contemporary series for today’s kids,” said Foothill President, Jo Kavanagh-Payne. “So many of our young viewers are growing up in blended and diverse households, it was about time there is a series reflecting their lives.”
With creative development led by seasoned U.K. and U.S. network writers, this funny but enlightening romp speaks to the modern family into which kids are thrust today. We learn that kindness, understanding and familial love are the ties that bind.
Storywalker CEO Antony Rajkumar said, “We set out to create properties that become the Parent’s Partner and the Child’s Companion. And we think Dinogons is the first step along that road.”
Foothill, which is handling worldwide distribution, will be at the market seeking co-production partners and pre-sales.
