Marblemedia is teaming up with original Skatoony creators James Fox and Richard Brookes of Whole Hog Creations to develop a new series mixing live-action and animation, called Chugga Chugga Wow.
The series, in development at Kids CBC in Canada, follows a group of live-action kids who board an animated train and ride to a cartoon world. International distribution will be handled by Distribution 360, Marblemedia’s distribution arm.
“We’re really looking forward to developing Chugga Chugga Wow with the creators of Skatoony,” says Mark Bishop, executive producer and partner, Marblemedia. “Through our combined experience with children’s cross-platform properties, we feel this is a great opportunity for both companies to create something entertaining and educational for preschoolers.”
