LONDON – Leading kids’ entertainment specialist CAKE has announced a deal with Turner’s Cartoon Network for a fourth season of multi-award winning comedy hit series Angelo Rules, co-produced with renowned French producer TEAMTO.
The forthcoming series of 52 x 11 minutes will premiere on Cartoon Network (as well as other Turner Kids channels in select markets) in EMEA and APAC in 2018 and promises to keep fans on the edge of their seats with new plot twists, on-trend technology including virtual reality, crowdfunding, skype and social media as well as introducing brand new characters, who add a fun new dynamic to Angelo’s gang. The fourth season brings the total number of episodes to 234.
Angelo Rules starring 11-year-old Angelo, a sweet-talking genius with a knack for getting out of trouble, became an instant hit when it debuted in 2010. Aimed at 6-12 year olds, it has aired in over 100 countries and has been widely recognized within the animation industry receiving a Pulcinella Award at the 2010 Cartoons on the Bay Festival for the Best Kids TV Series, and nominations at the 2013 International Emmy® Kids Awards; 2011 BANFF World Media Festival; the 2013 Trickfilm Festival; and Anima Mundi in 2012. Three mobile games: Angelo Rules – A Busy Day, Angelo Skate Away and Angelo Run (available on iTunes and the Google Play Store) and several mini games accompany the series.
Angelo Rules is a TeamTO/CAKE co-production with TeleTOON+ in collaboration with France Télévisions and Super RTL and is based on the French series of books Comment Faire Enrager, written by Sylvie de Mathuisieulx and illustrated by Sébastien Diologent.
CCO & Managing Director, Ed Galton from CAKE said, “Angelo Rules has broadcast continuously on Cartoon Network since launch and we are thrilled to team up with them once again on the fourth series, which we will be launching internationally at MIPCOM this year.”
