9 Story Ent. is starting up production on its new action/comedy, FUTZ!, for TELETOON, in December 2006. The series will be produced for television, web and mobile.
FUTZ! is a project that was ahead of its time when we began developing it in 2002, explained Vince Commisso, partner/exec producer, 9 Story Ent. With the surging demand for short content coming from tween and older audiences on mobile, web and television, the format and concept are a perfect fit for todays media landscape. Were thrilled to have TELETOONs support behind it on all broadcast platforms in Canada.
Ready for anything but prepared for nothing, Futz is one part genius counter-balanced by one part idiot. Finding himself thrown in very relatable situations, regardless of location or time period, Futz is somehow always able to severely mess things up in just 180 seconds. Targeted to kids 9-14, the 26x3 FUTZ! series will be available via television, mobile and the Web.
