From a media release:
Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana is thrilled to announce that an array of industry-leading partners have joined forces on the brand-new, wholly original series, Mysticons, which will make its global debut in 2017.
Nickelodeon will serve as the global broadcast partner, including in the U.S. Nelvana Studio is actively developing the franchise and will begin production of the series later this year, working closely with the core group of partners including The Topps Company, which was acquired by Michael Eisner’s Tornante Company and Madison Dearborn Partners in 2007. Mysticons is written by veteran kids series writer Sean Jara (RedaKai, Hot Wheels: Battle Force 5, The League of Super Evil, Naturally Sadie).
The series tells the epic tale of four girls who transform into legendary warriors and undertake a mythic quest to find a magic tome known as the Codex. They must reach the Codex before Necrafa, the Queen of the Undead, gets to it first and uses it to spread darkness and destruction. The Mysticons come from different walks of life, from princess to street kid, but are brought together by fate to save the world. With their incredible magical weapons and abilities, our masked Mysticons are modern day heroines.
The series is executive produced by Michael Eisner and Noel Bright for The Topps Company and Corus Entertainment’s Doug Murphy, Colin Bohm and Irene Weibel.
