Press Release from Breakthrough Entertainment
TORONTO (April 27, 2009) -- Breakthrough Entertainment announced today that they have licensed the children's animated series, JIMMY TWO-SHOES, to Cartoon Network in Asia and Australia. The announcement was made today by Craig McGillivray, Sales Executive.
"Being the #1 screened title at MIPCOM Jr., there was naturally a lot of momentum toward the series," said McGillivray, "CN Asia expressed a strong interest for 'Jimmy' from the beginning. We're happy to be working with them again and feel they will provide a great home for the series."
Cartoon Network in Asia and Australia has acquired twenty-six, half-hour episodes. The broadcast line-up for JIMMY TWO-SHOES already includes TELETOON in Canada, Jetix US, Jetix Europe and Nickelodeon Latin America.
JIMMY TWO-SHOES -- What happens when you take an irrepressible, thrill-seeking optimist and plunk him down in Miseryville, the most miserable place on Earth? You get the brand new animated series JIMMY TWO-SHOES! Along with his best friends, Heloise — part-time genius, full-time soul-crusher -- and Beezy -- lover of adventure, once you get him off the couch -- Jimmy is determined to surf past all obstacles and bring his infectious enthusiasm to the whole town ... including its megalomaniacal chief executive, Lucius Heinous the Seventh. Jimmy's making misery fun again!
JIMMY TWO-SHOES is a Breakthrough Animation Production. The series is produced in association with TELETOON in Canada and Jetix Europe.
