BRB's Angus&Cheryl to be Aired on CBBC
Created 03/03/2009 - 01:00
ANGUS&CHERYL, the original cartoon series created by Screen 21 and distributed by BRB Internacional that reflects, humorously, the gist of guys-and-girls' relationships, will be seen in the U.K. thanks to CBBC.
The British broadcaster has just acquired the TV rights -- both for pay and open-broadcast channels. This modern comedy series offers a curiously pleasant take on the eternal war between the sexes... but without war or sex. The show already airs in France, Italy, Belgium, Portugal, Scandinavia and Latin America. German broadcaster RTL2 has increased its contract for more episodes for this coming season based on the series' rating success, while in Eastern Europe, the Polish broadcaster, TVN Poland and also Baltic Media Alliance (for Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia) have confirmed they will also air the series this year.
Aimed at a family target group, ANGUS&CHERYL (104x2) is based on an immediately-identifiable slapstick style of comedy -- with no dialogue -- and essentially features the every-day differences of opinion between couples the world over. All condensed into two fast-paced minutes. A universal concept highlighting every-day situations, with a unique design concept that is easily recognizable, in which the music and sound effects are particularly relevant and evoke the culture of videogames.
