Genao to revives ‘Chipmunks,’ ‘Xiaolin’

Shingle teams with Bagdasarian, ActionFliks

PARIS

In the run up to MipJunior, Lagardere’s Genao Prods. teamed with international partners to bring back two hit TV franchises for kids — “The Chipmunks and Chipettes” and “Xiaolin Chronicles.”

Produced by Genao and Bagdasarian Prods., “The Chipmunks and Chipettes” is a CGI animated skein comprising 52 11-minute episodes turning on the adventures of Alvin and his brothers Theodore and Simon, as well as the three chipmunk singers. Bagdasarian produced “Alvin and the Chipmunks,” the popular series that started airing on NBC in 1983.

Created 53 years ago, the franchise is still going strong. The trilogy “Alvin and the Chipmunks” from 20th Century Fox grossed more than $1 billion worldwide.

Genao has also paired with Los Angeles-based ActionFliks Media Corp. on a revamped “Xiaolin Chronicles” toon series.

Mixing 2D and 3D, the fantasy-filled action-comedy follows the Xiaolin monks and their magic dragons on new quests.

It’s produced by “Xiaolin Showdown” creator Christy Hui at ActionFliks Media Corp., and Sandrine Nguyen and Boris Hertzog at Genao.

Show, comprising 26 half-hours, has been pre-bought by Lagardere’s two DTT nets Gulli and Canal J, and Cartoon Network. Delivery is scheduled next fall.

Lagardere Entertainment Rights, headed by Emmanuelle Bouilhaguet, reps “Xiaolin Chronicles” in international markets.
