Bejuba! Ent, Skarmoosh & Creative Visual media to make Spooky Investigations

MUMBAI: Bejuba! Entertainment has partnered with Skaramoosh London and Creative Visual Media to develop Spooky Investigations.

The animated series, designed as a continuation to comic adventures of the popular Spooky Sisters, will be aired on Disney UK. The half-hour series is slated to go on air by 2010.

Bejuba! Entertainment will serve as executive producer and distributor of the series, in addition to seeking out co-production partners.

Most recently, the original Spooky Sisters series of shorts enjoyed successful runs on ABC in Australia and, the UK-based children’s online entertainment platform. These shorts will be available for screening at Mipcom Jr.

While retaining all the comic hallmarks of the original shorts, the new production will follow the adventures of the intrepid sisters, Amelia and Cecelia Spooky, as they form a self-styled paranormal investigation agency especially for kids. Together with their cousin Boris, a 200-year-old teenage vampire who turns into a bat, the sisters will investigate any spooky mystery which grownups consider too farfetched to believe.

“While the series of shorts concentrated on the fighting power of the sisters, the new long form series will focus on the paranormal, the mysteries and the fun – three things kids love. We are excited to be working with Skaramoosh and CVM, and look forward to building a global audience of loyal viewers,” said Bejuba! Entertainment president Tatiana Kober.

Skaramoosh MD Daniel Slight stated, “Bejuba’s rich market experience and recent successes in animation co-production will be key ingredients in realizing our vision for the new series and in finding a new global audience for the show. With our fantastic new team, we have developed the show to a point where it is even stronger, better looking and funnier than before.”
