TeamTO has presold its new comedy series Take it Easy Mike (78 x 7) to leading European networks France Télévisions (France) and Super RTL (Germany). Currently in full pre-production, the ambitious series is now greenlit, with delivery planned for 2018 and broadcast scheduled for early 2019.
Co-produced with Canada’s Digital Dimension, Take it Easy Mike is a dialog-free, slapstick comedy from the creators of TeamTO’s Oscar’s Oasis, in the style of Tom & Jerry-meets-silly pet videos.
At the heart of the series is Mike, a refined pug with boundless energy and sophisticated tastes who is set on seducing Cindy, the lovely neighbor’s dog. Sadly, his plans never seem to work out as a bunch of troublemakers always interferes. Freddy and Mercury the raccoons, Fluffy the cutest kitten and the turtle trio have a knack of showing up at the worst possible moments dragging Mike into a series of unforeseen twists and turns.
The nonstop action is directed by Franz Kirchner, director on TeamTO’s Angelo Rules (Series 1 & 2) and Rabbids Invasion, and Antoine Bouron, director on Rabbids Invasion and Les Petites Betes. Worldwide distribution (excluding France, Germany and China) is handled by CAKE.
