Laser Pegs spinoff iStory Animation teams with global entertainment production and distribution company DQ Entertainment to develop and produce CGI animated series ‘Peg Heads.’
NEW YORK -- Global entertainment production and distribution company DQ Entertainment International has signed an agreement with Sarasota, FL-based iStory Animation Studios to develop and produce a 52-episode, 11-minute Peg Heads CGI animated series that will be shopped to international broadcasters. The characters will also be available as a line of toys that are compatible with Laser Pegs.
The Peg Heads storyline is being written by four-time Emmy Award-winning writer Jeffrey Scott and is based on three characters created by Jon Capriola (founder of iStory and Laser Pegs) that endeavor to Light Up the world with their plug-and-play illuminated body parts and add-on accessories.
”Peg Heads is a truly unique property that has multi-dimensional characters, offers a startling storyline, and lastly promote acceptance and diversity in the worldwide market,” said iStory Animation CEO Jon Capriola.
“We are extremely proud to announce our relationship with iStory Animation,” added DQ Entertainment CEO Tapaas Chakravarti. “There is something really special about this property that only comes around once in a great while. We intend to partner with iStory on Peg Heads and build a global brand with the launch of this series in 2016.”
