Independent U.K. producer Luminous Pictures has entered into a three-way co-production deal with Paris-based TEVA and Vancouver studio Atomic Cartoons for its new series Mutant Moments. Created by Alan Kerswell, the 26×13 series features tales of the bizarre, hosted by J. Arthur Friendsy.
Mutant Moments stories will delve into the twisted lives of characters like Nomis Drawhenorr, who after one whipping too many, takes on the Teacher From Hell, and all-American beauty Fanny Gemcluster, who sets out to eliminate the competition for the title of Head Cheerleader.
Producers describe the series as a mix of Alfred Hitchcock Presents and The Twilight Zone for kids. “[It’s] very much what we might expect if Roald Dahl had written Tiny Toons lots of action with a twisted, black humor,” says Luminous producer Peter Lewis.
