Cottonwood Media and co-production partner Shaftesbury have entered into a new development deal with Corus Entertainment’s Teletoon in Canada for its animated show “Squish.”
“'Squish’ has already succeeded in entertaining kids in Canada through its graphic novels and we are thrilled to develop this concept for Teletoon,” says Athena Georgaklis, director of content, Teletoon. “We look forward to joining this list of talented writers and producers to bring these stories to life.”
“Squish,” which is an animated comedy about the life of amoebas, is currently one of five projects on Cottonwood Media’s slate. Cottonwood plans to air the comic-inspired show in 2017.
In addition to the deal, Gulli (France) has ramped up its prior development deal to a pre-buy of digital and broadcast rights for the series in France.
