Cyber Group Studios has secured several series agreements with France-based company, Gulli (M6 Group).“We are extremely excited about this partnership,” Chairman and CEO of Cyber Group Studios and co-creator of the three projects, Pierre Sissman, said. “We have very much enjoyed working with the Gulli team on these series, which have both French and international appeal and are already generating strong interest worldwide.”
The deal includes the development of two original Cyber Group Studios properties, "The McFire Family" and "George Moby and Co.," as well as the pre-acquisition of the recently developed third season of the French hit animated series "Taffy." All three shows are slated to begin production this year.
"The McFire Family," created by Pierre Sissman and co-written with Cyber Group Studios Vice President of Development Ira Singerman and Head Writer Jacqueline Moody, is targeted at kids ages 5-8. The series follows a family of superhero firefighters and rescuers whose powers stem from the inventive lifesaving technology they have developed. Their ancestors were the very first firefighters in history and the legacy continues with three siblings, 12-year-old Tom, 10-year old Sparkle, and 6-year-old Jax.
"George Moby and Co." is a 78x7’ 2D animated comedy series for kids and families. An original concept from Cyber Group Studio’s Ahmed Guerrouache with a series bible co-written by Marine Lachenaud Ahmed Guerrouache, and Pierre Sissman. This show follows the adventures of a most unexpected and hilarious duo, George, a timid vegetarian lion, and Moby, a vociferous and determined little mouse. George is looking to make his mark on society and gives Moby a home inside his mouth, hoping that his new “inner voice” doesn’t do all the talking.
A 2D cartoon comedy series created by Pierre Sissman, "Taffy" is created by Mike De Seve and directed by Ahmed Gurraouache, returns for a third season, filled with crazy adventures, characters, and settings that will create a whole new environment. The series follows the non-stop, slapstick misadventures of a loyal hound dog named Bentley after his billionaire old lady owner, Mrs. Muchmore, takes in a racoon imposter posing as a wide-eyed, fluffy Angora cat.
