Independent animation house Alphanim has partnered with Canadian production company Nelvana on THE DELTA STATE (26 x 30-minutes). The show, which focuses on four 20-something East Berliners with supernatural powers, was originally announced in 2001 as a co-production with Cinar, but fell through when Cinar Europe closed its doors in February 2002. With Nelvana now on board, the series is scheduled to deliver in fall 2003. Alphanim has also committed to CREEP SCHOOL (26 x 26-minutes) a co-production with Sweden's Happy Life and France 3. The series is also scheduled for 2003. In sales news, ZOMBIE HOTEL, a 26 x 26-minute animated series for 8 to 12 year-olds has been sold to the BBC UK and RAI Italy has picked up Alphanim's COSMIC COWBOYS (26 x 26-minutes), a co-production with Telepool and Tooncan Productions in association with Animation Enterprises HK.
