marblemedia Brings Skatoony Across the Pond

From a media release:

marblemedia announced today that it has acquired the North American format rights to produce a version of the popular Cartoon Network U.K. series Skatoony. Currently in its third season on Cartoon Network, the successful television program pits real kids against cartoon characters in an animated quiz game show format. The first season enters production this spring and will shoot 13 half-hour English and 13 half-hour French episodes. The series, aimed at kids aged 8 to 12, has been commissioned for TELETOON Canada and is set to premiere in Spring 2010.

“Skatoony is more than just a television show. It has grown into a phenomenon,” said Mark Bishop, Partner and Executive Producer, marblemedia. “Its popularity in the U.K. is astounding, which we know will transfer very well into this market. Our goal is to build on the success of this top-rated franchise and develop this brand for new audiences.”

Finn Arnesen SVP & GM Original Series and International Development at Turner Entertainment Networks International adds: “We are really pleased to continue the rollout of Skatoony in other markets and bring the format to Canada. Having great partners in TELETOON and marblemedia will make for a strong and entertaining version of the show for Canadian kids to enjoy.”

“The double-shoot in French and English as well as the unique format means Skatoony and marblemedia will offer tween fans across Canada a special opportunity to trade barbs and match wits with a wide variety of entertaining animated characters,” Michael Goldsmith, Director, Original Content, TELETOON.

Skatoony is hosted by popular animated characters Chudd Chudders and The Earl. Each week, real life kids compete against cartoon contestants in four rounds of wild game show challenges, with the final contestant taking everything in an against-the-clock-challenge.

marblemedia is also developing an accompanying interactive website for Skatoony and its characters, allowing kids to get involved in the fast-paced quizzing anytime.
