“Freefonix” follows the adventures of a pop group 50 years in the future in the city of Los Bosmos.

“Freefonix” was created by Magnus Fiennes, brother of actors Ralph and Joseph, and launches to the international market at Mip TV in Cannes next week.

French org Method Films turned heads with CG series “Skyland,” which aired on Nickelodeon in the U.S. and on ITV in the U.K.

The latest “Iron Man” TV series will follow the release of the live-action “Iron Man” feature.

Pic, which stars Robert Downey Jr. in the lead role and Samuel L. Jackson as Marvel superhero Nick Fury, opens May 2 Stateside and in the U.K.
