9 Story Ent. has announced that production has been completed on the first 26 episodes of its new animated comedy series FUTZ! The Teletoon Original Production is scheduled to premiere as part of the network's new fall programming lineup in September.
Targeting nine- to14-year-olds, the wacky comedy is a retro nonverbal cartoon based on the misadventures of its title character, who is ready for anything, prepared for nothing and always able to severely mess things up in just 180 seconds -- the length of each episode.
"Kids today are seeking strong entertainment content from a variety of venues, so we created the series with this timeless comedic antihero as its star to fit the diverse multi-platform needs of young audiences everywhere," said Vince Commisso, CEO and co-partner of 9 Story Entertainment. Natalie Osborne, the company's Exec VP of Business Development, will present the completed episodes to international broadcasters at this year's MIPCOM 2007.
Founded in 2001, 9 Story Ent. is an award-winning production and distribution company dedicated to delivering the most-loved children's properties internationally. Producers of such popular shows as PEEP AND THE BIG WIDE WORLD and SKYLAND, 9 Story has delivered over 100 half-hours of animated television content.
