The Joester Loria Group has signed on as global licensing agent for APNG Enterprises’ “New-Gen,” a new sci-fi series.

“New-Gen” is created by APNG’s J.D. Matonti, and the showrunner is Brent Friedman, whose credits include the “Star Wars” franchise, “Halo 4,” “Call of Duty,” “Resident Evil” and “Star Trek: Enterprise, Tale from the Borderlands.” It is co-written by Eugene Son, who has worked on many of the biggest superhero franchises, including “Avengers Assemble,” “Ultimate Spider-Man,” “Ben 10,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” “Hulk” and “The Agents of S.M.A.S.H.”

“We intend to take viewers to a futuristic utopia where an array of nanotech-enhanced humans, creatures, AI come to life,” says J.D. Matonti, creator and executive producer of “New-Gen.” "The rich, epic world of ‘New-Gen’ offers limitless possibilities for toys, games and merchandise.”

“New-Gen” is a sci-fi adventure series featuring teenage superheroes, a demonic villain and nanotechnology. Independent global kids and family TV distributor Jetpack Distribution has acquired the global rights for the series and is in negotiations for broadcast and streaming rights.

“New-Gen” is being produced with animation partner Bardel Entertainment, whose animated series include “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” “The Dragon Prince,” “Rick & Morty,” “Angry Birds,” “Teen Titans Go,” “Monsters VS Aliens” and “Dinotrux.”

“We have watched J.D. and his team bring ‘New-Gen’ from the comic pages to fantastic animation fueled by great talent over the past year,” says Debra Joester, president, The Joester Loria Group. “The series brings together the compelling storytelling and characters that deliver great licensed product.”
