On the heels of MIPCOM 2008, 4Kids Ent. has finalized licensing agreements with broadcasters in France and the U.K. for the first season of CHAOTIC.
CHAOTIC (Season One) is scheduled to launch on Gulli TV in France, Rede TV in Brazil and Jetix in the U.K., beginning first quarter 2009.
The property's second season, CHAOTIC: M'ARRILLIAN INVASION, has also been renewed by Teletoon in Canada and Jetix in Latin America. Broadcast sales of the series in Germany, Italy and other markets are expected to close by end of the calendar year.
Produced in HD, the series chronicles the adventures of two teenage boys who discover a fascinating trading card game that transports them into a multidimensional world of action and adventure.
The series' global broadcast lineup already includes: Jetix (U.S.), Teletoon (Canada), TEN Network (Australia), RTBF (Belgium), SIC (Portugal), MNet (South Africa), and Kids Central (Singapore) among others.
In the United States, the CHAOTIC series airs weekends on TheCW4Kids and is available for VOD viewing on the Comcast, Cox and Bresnan cable systems. The show's second season, CHAOTIC: M'ARRILLIAN INVASION, airs on Fox during the 4KidsTV four-hour Saturday morning program block.
4Kids partnered with TELETOON Canada and Bardel Ent. to produce the high definition, 3D CGI animation series.
The TV series follows two teenage boys who discover that the CHAOTIC trading card game they've been playing transports them to CHAOTIC, a parallel universe where they find themselves right in the middle of the action where the game comes to life. They quickly realize that the unique codes on their trading cards are actually scans of real, living creatures with unique powers from the realm of Perim. The boys then use these fierce and fascinating beings to help further their gaming skills as they capture the codes of new creatures, new battle gear and new locations in which to compete.
