Fireback Entertainment Launches “Captain Mack”

UK-based Fireback Entertainment is launching its “Captain Mack” children’s series aimed at 4- to 6-year-olds on CITV in spring 2008.

Using live action and CGI animation, “Captain Mack” follows the adventures of its eponymous brave and daring sky captain who performs daring deeds and flies heroic missions.

Fireback controls worldwide rights and is in final negotiations to secure worldwide TV and video distribution. “Captain Mack” joins the company’s existing children’s IP, including “Tom & Vicky,” also licensed to CITV, as well as “The Treacle People” and “The Fourth King” under license to Channel 4.
