Foothill Entertainment announces the addition of Moonscoop Entertainment to the G.U.N.K. Aliens production.
Santa Barbara, CA -- Foothill, along with its co-production partners Moody Street Kids and Gallus Entertainment on the irreverent comedy series G.U.N.K. Aliens, have now added animation production powerhouse Moonscoop Entertainment US, lead by industry veterans, Mike and Liz Young, to the production mix. The Emmy and BAFTA Award winning producer, along with Moonscoop Entertainment US President and partner Liz Young who based in Woodland Hills, California, have produced some of the most well know animated series such as Clifford the Big Red Dog, ToddWorld and Jakers! The Adventures of Piggley Winks.
Having been commissioned by Network 10, Australia and based on the funny, best-selling books from HarperCollins, G.U.N.K. Aliens finds Jack, his robotic dog Snivel and his pals, Oscar and Ruby, working for a top secret (but wacky) alien-fighting organization called C.L.E.A.N. They are the only thing standing between Earth and the G.U.N.K. ALIENS: a disgusting band of extra-terrestrials committed to an all-out toxic invasion of Earth. It is up to Jack and his friends to root out these gross and smelly (but really funny) aliens before they can do some real damage.
Jo Kavanagh-Payne, President of Foothill, stated, “We have known Mike and Liz for many years and have always wanted to find a project on which to work. Their knowledge about international productions will be a huge asset to the project.”
“We are always looking for fun and unique projects on which to work,” remarked Mike Young, CEO of Moonscoop Entertainment US. “What works better for kids than fighting aliens and saving the world!”
Foothill also is poised to announce a major toy deal for this property as well as the signing of a significant publishing partner.
