TOONMARTY MAKES ITS WAY TO CITV
Barcelona – London – Montreal – August 9, 2017 –Comedy series ToonMarty (40×11’) is heading to CITV (UK) after a deal inked with Barcelona based distributor GoldBee.
Produced by Montreal’s Sardine Productions, ToonMarty, was originally commissioned by Corus Entertainment for its French and English Teletoon networks and premiered on both in Canada last May.
The deal follows the recent pick up and successful launch of ToonMarty on Nickelodeon International, which started to roll out the series last May.
Christophe Goldberger, GoldBee’s Managing Director: “We are happy to see Toon Marty expand its presence with such a great partner as CITV. The tone of this outstanding comedy resonates with kids globally, combining hilarious slapstick elements with witty dialogues”.
Darren Nartey, ITV’s Programme Acquisitions Executive: “We are delighted to be the home of Toon Marty in the UK. It is a great comedy with fantastic animation, which will appeal to CITV’s core audience.
Ghislain Cyr, President, and Producer at Sardine Productions: “We are delighted to count CITV amongst our partners. This is so rewarding for all of us at Sardine to know that kids from the UK & all around the world will be watching our series & hopefully have a good laugh!’”.
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, busy body 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!
