Moonscoop launches ‘DaVincibles’

Tyke toon set for late 2010 delivery

PARIS — French toon shingle Moonscoop is partnering with Italian company Neo Network to launch production on madcap animated series “The DaVincibles.”

The 2-D short-format slapstick cartoon targets 7-11 year olds. Set for a late 2010 delivery, skein has been picked up by Gulli in France and Seven in Australia.

Skein is co-produced by RAI Fiction, Australia’s SLR, Ireland’s Telegael and India’s Big Animation.

Big Animation will handle distribution in Asia and SLR will distribute the toon in Australia and New Zealand.

The “DaVincibles” follows two young siblings and their uncle, all members of the DaVinci family, as they travel the world.

Last month, Moonscoop announced a multi-title deal with U.K. terrestrial broadcaster GMTV, which included 200 half-hours from the Moonscoop slate, such as “Fantastic Four,” and its new series “Hero:108” and “Chloe’s Closet.”

“This deal was an important step for us because it was the first time GMTV has inked a volume deal with a non-Hollywood major,” said Lionel Marty, prexy of worldwide distribution for Moonscoop.

“The next step for us is to not only sell well but continue to establish strong brands and consumer products, and develop content on multiple platforms.”
