Mobile Entertainment | 05/07/2007
New series of animated comedy shorts to debut this summer.
Animation studio ZAC Toons will launch new content based on its Mr Patel IP during August through operators and D2C partners in Europe, the US and Australia.
The original Mr Patel cartoon series, consisting of two minute episodes, has already broken into the US TV market, licensed by G4TV which is broadcast on the Comcast platform to 60 million US homes.
The ten episodes were broadcast on G4TVís Late Night Peepshow throughout December and January with the channel having the rights to rebroadcast through 2007 and 2008.
Troy Zafer, managing director of ZAC Toons, said: 'Mr Patel has managed to capture an audience both on mobile, online and via G4TV thanks to its insightful yet humourous take on Asian culture. We look forward to further developing the property across mobile, online and TV in the coming years.'
