Outfit7 has teamed up with TV production company BRB Internacional to produce a TV series based on the Talking Tom and Friends app series.
“I don’t know anyone who doesn’t have these characters on their tablet or mobile phone,” says Carlos Biern, chief executive officer, BRB Internacional. “We have the good fortune of being able to draw the millions of fans of this brand even further into their universe. The incredible number of hits generated from their first shorts on YouTube, in addition to the 230 million people engaging with them every month, prove there is an audience waiting to consume Talking Tom and Friends content on TV.”
The “Talking Tom and Friends” TV series (52 x 11) will be produced in 3D and targeted to 8- to 12-years-olds. The show will be co-produced by BRB’s creative studio, Screen 21, and Outfit7, and will be distributed around the world by BRB Internacional.
“We’ve spent many years developing our brands, their characters and personalities, so that they resonate with people of all cultures, ages and demographics,” says Samo Login, founder and chief executive, Outfit7. “It is important that we partner with a company that shares our vision and love for our characters. BRB have both the experience and talent to deliver first-class content that will further engage with our fans across the world.”
A trailer for the series will make its debut at MIPTV in Cannes, France, in April.
