Toy maker Jakks Pacific has teamed up with leading Japanese animation producer Dentsu to produce an animated TV series based on the Monsuno property.
Monsuno, a boys action property about monster DNA that finds its way into the hands of adventure seeking boys, is being developed as a 52-episode animated series and toy property set to launch in 2011 in North America, Europe and Asia.
‘This new venture is an exciting new direction for Jakks Pacific into owning our own entertainment and leveraging it into the toy line,’ said Jakks president and co-CEO Stephen Berman. ‘We have been scouring the globe and are assembling the Monsuno team, and we believe Dentsu is the perfect partner, given their production expertise and global leadership position in developing children’s television.’
Mitsuharu Inoue will serve as creative director and is the former producer of Bakugan Battle Brawlers.
