School for Vampires Takes Lessons to Austria

The animated children’s series “The School for Vampires” will air on Austrian television beginning at the end of February following a deal between m4e and the ORF, Vienna. The deal covers the first two seasons of the total of 52 x 11-minute cartoons produced by Hahn Film Berlin. In Germany the series appears on KI.KA.

The series is an international co-production, under the direction of Hahn Film, and is based on the book series by the German children’s book author Jack Niebisch. A feature film is currently in planning and is scheduled for theatrical release in 2009.
