BKN will deliver two new films later this spring entitled ZORRO AND SCARLET WHIP: REVEALED! and DORK HUNTERS AND THE PIRATES OF TORTUGA ISLAND based on its successful properties ZORRO: GENERATION Z and DORK HUNTERS FROM OUTER SPACE.
Both films will be 80 minutes in length and be available for television license and for DVD release later in 2008.
ZORRO AND SCARLET WHIP: REVEALED! tells the story of our heroes' battle against criminal scientists named the Catalano brothers. And, at long last, we discover whether Zorro and Scarlet Whip will reveal their secret identities to one another.
DORK HUNTERS AND THE PIRATES OF TORTUGA ISLAND -- It's summer vacation and the Dork Hunters take a holiday on tropical Tortuga Island only to discover that Fido (the Dork Commander) and Principal Jones (his second-in-command) have travelled to the same resort in their search of a buried treasure chest full of micro-galaxies. The holiday turns to an adventure as the Dork Hunters are captured by pirates.
Nicola Andrews, Managing Director of BKN New Media said, "The Dork Hunters property will launch with GMTV in the UK and RTL II in Germany, followed by many other quality broadcasters and a major toy line from UK based Character Group. This new DORK HUNTERS AND THE PIRATES OF TORTUGA ISLAND feature will further connect the storyline to kids and engage in more adventure."
Laura Tapias, Managing Director of BKN New Media said, "ZORRO AND SCARLET WHIP: REVEALED! follows the already produced and announced ZORRO - RETURN TO THE FUTURE film and continues our investment in this great property. Many markets will launch this year such as TVE/Clan TV and Telecinco in Spain and Star TV in Greece and Record TV in Brazil while other key markets will launch in 2009 including Mediaset in Italy."
