NICKELODEON SCOOPS TOONMARTY RIGHTS AS PART OF AN INTERNATIONAL AGREEMENT
Barcelona – Montreal – February 7, 2017 – Brand new animated comedy series ToonMarty (40×11’), produced by Montreal’s Sardine Productions, has been acquired from GoldBee by Nickelodeon for its channels and digital platforms internationally (excluding North America, China, and Japan).
ToonMarty, was originally commissioned by Corus Entertainment for its French and English Teletoon networks and will premiere on both in Canada in May 2017.
Christophe Goldberger, GoldBee’s Managing Director: “We are thrilled to see ToonMarty launch on an international platform. Nickelodeon is a great home for this groundbreaking comedy, as it combines hilarious slapstick elements and witty dialogues, and therefore reaches a wide audience. ToonMarty’s humour has a contemporary spirit for a freewheeling and irreverent good time!”
Ghislain Cyr, President, and Sardine Productions: “We are privileged to have such great partners as Corus Entertainment and Nickelodeon onboard for this series. And the studio is thrilled to introduce ToonMarty to the world, it’s a special moment for us”.
In the middle of Toonville, where all cartoons live, sits the Toonmart, where all cartoons hang out. As the Number One (read “only”) employee there, Marty believes his job is to stick his nose in everyone else’s business… And there’s no business Marty likes better than somebody else’s business, except maybe show business! With every bend, bounce, flip and spin, Marty makes a great big cartoony adventure out of everything, and includes everyone in his Marty-Party!
The property is supported by The Bell Fund, The Canadian Media Fund and The Shaw Rocket Fund.
