Spain’s Neox Kidz will debut the animated comedy Mutant Busters (52 x 11) on Saturday, October 31, following the launch of the series’ first webisode on Atresmedia Television on Saturday, October 24. Aimed at kids 6-8, Mutant Busters is co-produced by Planeta Junior, toy manufacturer Famosa and animation studio Kotoc in collaboration with Neox Kidz.
Based on an original concept from the Famosa creative team, Mutant Busters is set in a post-apocalyptic world created by horrendous levels of toxic contamination. The Earth is split into two regions: one inhabited by the human “Resistance,” and one occupied by hideous mutants – humans turned into monsters by the stinking gas covering the planet.
Mutant Busters is a transmedia brand which will also include digital elements like apps and augmented reality. The last three minutes of each episode can be broadcast independently as a webisode, giving audiences an interactive experience that tells the same story from a different perspective, vlog style.
