CinéGroupe Adds Two New Shows
Canadian independent entertainment company CinéGroupe is beginning production on two new animated TV series, THE THREE PIGS and EDWARD, bringing its current production slate to nine new and five returning animated and live-action entertainment productions set for airing on U.S., Canadian and international television networks during the 2001-2002 television season. THE THREE PIGS, a new 26-episode half-hour animated series about a comically dysfunctional porcine family features Mikey, a humble but cool 15-year-old country pig who crosses the tracks to live with his fancy uptown city cousins. The series will air on TELETOON Canada, Fox Kids France and Fox Kids Europe, among others. EDWARD is a whimsical series of 65 x 30-second clips, created by Christian and Yvon Tremblay (MEGA BABIES), and inspired by MOTS DE TETE (HEAD WORKS), a series of books by the popular Quebec writer, Pierre Légaré. It follows the day-to-day adventures of a strange and funny fellow on his quest to discover the meaning of life.
