Annecy, France --
Mediatoon Distribution has signed a worldwide distribution agreement with French production company 4.21 Productions for the new kids’ series, The Crumpets.
This whimsical comedy series of 52 11-minute episodes -- commissioned by Canal + Family and presented at MIFA -- tells the adventures of an eccentric and endearing king-size family. The action is seen from the eyes of Lil’one, the youngest of this big clan.
“We have been seduced by the originality and the modernity of the project and we had a very special crush on the explosive duo formed by Lil’one and his Gran Ma, one of the 2 main characters,” says Jerôme Alby, General Manager of Mediatoon. “That’s why we decided to integrate it to our catalogue of series from independent producers, like we did last year with The Darwinners, produced by Haut&Court.”
Actually in production, the series is planned to be launched at MIPCOM 2014.
