Taffy Ent. has secured Italy's Rai and France's M6 as the first major European broadcasters for the new animated kids' TV series, GERONIMO STILTON (26x22).
Based on the children's chapter book series of the same name, GERONIMO STILTON is produced by Atlantyca Ent. and MoonScoop Productions, in association with Mike Young Productions, and with the participation of Rai-Fiction and M6, who have been involved in the project from the initial stages, working creatively on the development and production. The new animated series is set for a fall 2009 debut.
GERONIMO STILTON, the animated series centers on the life and adventures of the famous Geronimo Stilton -- head of a veritable media empire, erudite mouse, and klutz extraordinaire, and Benjamin Stilton, his fearless young nephew. Geronimo is an intellectual mild-mannered mouse who would rather spend his days reading or playing chess with his nephew Benjamin. But then, adventure always comes knocking on their door, launching them paws-first into capers in New Mouse City or in exotic locales around the world. They are often joined in these adventures by Trap, Geronimo's cousin – the ultimate pack rat and consummate prankster, and Thea, Geronimo's sister who is a daring special correspondent.
Atlantyca is the original rights holder of the GERONIMO STILTON brand and all of its character spinoffs. The GERONIMO STILTON books are published worldwide and are available in over 30 languages, including Italian, where they are published by Edizioni Piemme [Mondadori Group], in English, published in the U.S. by Scholastic, in French, by Albin Michel Jeunesse and in Spanish by Editorial Planeta.
