CAKE Entertainment has been appointed as worldwide distributor for Fresh TV’s Total Drama Reloaded, the fourth installment in the Total Drama franchise.
CAKE continues to expand international sales for the franchise. Most recently to Cartoon Network Latin America (Total Drama World Tour), Cartoon Network Asia (Total Drama Island, Total Drama Action and Total Drama World Tour) and Cartoon Network EMEA, excluding the UK (Total Drama World Tour).
Previous installments of Fresh TV’s Total Drama franchise include Total Drama Island, the first series of the animated reality TV spoof, which became CAKE’s best-selling property of 2008. Total Drama Action, the follow-up series, showcases all of the elements of tweens’ favorite reality TV shows within the framework of an exciting, larger-than-life elimination competition. The third series in the franchise, Total Drama World Tour, features outrageous challenges in which the same fifteen contestants battle it out around the globe in a massive airplane until there is a winner. The rivals have to sing and dance in order to beat their opponents and stay in the competition.
Total Drama Reloaded takes our fans back to Camp Wawanakwa and introduces them to a fresh new cast of hilarious contestants. Together, they will face challenges that only an animated show could deliver. If the teens want to win the ultimate cash prize, they had better be ready to get squashed, stretched, pummeled and bruised.
Ed Galton, Managing Director, CAKE Distribution says: “We are extremely pleased that the Total Drama franchise is continuing to grow in size. The sales we have achieved to Cartoon Network in these three territories are testament to the successful format of this show and we are enormously proud to have this property in our portfolio. We look forward to continuing our relationship with FRESH TV and garnering further sales for the Total Drama franchise.”
Tom McGillis, Executive Producer, FRESH TV adds: “This season ushers in a whole new gang of memorable teens that audiences around the world will love. All new alliances, betrayals and friendships between these animated teens will deliver laughs like never before."
These recent sales build on the international success of FRESH TV’s Total Drama Island, which was sold to ABC Australia, Canal Plus France, Cartoon Network Europe and Jetix UK among others. Its sequel, Total Drama Action, has also been a ratings hit and continues to build internationally. CAKE also distributes FRESH TV’s animated surf comedy, Stoked, which has so far been picked up by Cartoon Network USA, CANAL+ and TPS Jeunesse.
