Chez Eddy preps ‘Treez,’ ‘Solo Me’

Toon series are backed by Canal Plus, Orange

PARIS — French VFX and toon shingle Chez Eddy is developing animated comedy skeins, “Les Zarbs” (Treez) and “Seule en solo” (Solo Me), for Gallic paybox Canal Plus and telco Orange.

Directed by Romain Segaud, the $1.7 million skein, which is partially financed by Canal Plus, centers on trees who talk like teenagers and tackle youth issues. First season comprises 52 3-minute episodes.

Orange has pre-bought and is partially financing the first season (52 3-minute episodes) of $1.2 million “Solo Me,” about a thirtysomething single girl living in Paris.

Orange Cinema Series’ acquisition topper Boris Duchesnay describes the skein as a “French ‘Bridget Jones.'”

Penned and helmed by former journalist Sophie Zuber and illustrated by graphic artist Oxolaterre, “Solo Me” is based on a comicbook.

Program will air in primetime on Orange Cine Happy, one of Orange Cinema Series’ channels.

Chez Eddy co-founders Jean-Francois Bourrel and Jerome Calvet attended Annecy’s Market to present both projects to networks to complete financing. The Annecy Animation Film Festival closed on Saturday.
