files/pictures/picture-35.jpgMainframe Entertainment is set to produce two new TV movies based on the characters from their TV series REBOOT. The two telepics are being produced in partnership with Canadian cable broadcaster YTV Canada, Inc. for broadcast in the Spring and Fall of 2001. REBOOT was the first ever half-hour computer animated TV series produced in the world. The series was originally shown in North American in September of 1994 on YTV in Canada and on ABC Television in the U.S. The original run of the series lasted three seasons and has garnered a cult-like following on Cartoon Network over the past year in reruns. "ReBoot fans around the world have never given up hope that we would continue the story," says Mainframe President and CEO, and ReBoot co-creator, Ian Pearson. "Even though season three wasn't seen in the U.S. until the last year, the fans have never deserted the show. ReBoot has always attracted a wide audience of both kids and adults because of its multi-level stories and ensemble cast. With these new TV movies we get to say a great big 'thank-you' to our fans, and mark my words, they will not be disappointed. Fans may, in fact, be shocked, as we answer some of those questions that have been on their minds for years." The first TV movie is entitled DAEMON RISING, which picks up the storyline where season three of the TV series left off. The second movie is yet to be titled. Mainframe produces the 3D animated series BEAST WARS, WEIRDOS and the upcoming ACTION MAN.
