Ferly and Wild Child Animation closed a co-development deal for the new animated adult comedy series, "Butthole Biscuits". The animated series is an unadulterated-warts-and-all look at society through the eyes of the broken and unwanted biscuits left behind at the bottom of the biscuit barrel. Rejected by tea-time society, barely fit for dunking, they can either sit around and go stale or breakout and go on the hunt for kicks.

The co-development deal will see the studios work on a pilot script for a long form series, brand expansion concepts and licensing opportunities. Further announcements will be made this year, including on the writing team, which will feature top comedic talent from the UK.

Laura Nevanlinna, CEO of Ferly, says, “The cheeky concept behind 'Butthole Biscuits' is a great opportunity for us to begin broadening the range of our productions. There is plenty of scope for the 'Butthole Biscuit' universe to expand and tell great, funny stories, with a social commentary slant. We’re looking forward to developing the brand, as we know there will be a lot of opportunity - not just in terms of narrative and characters but across merchandising and brand expansion.”

Sueann Rochester, Managing Director of Wild Child Animation, comments: “We’re really excited to be collaborating with Ferly on 'Butthole Biscuits'. The show is full of weird, laugh out loud characters and we’re working with some top comedic talent to bring it to life. Ferly has a well-earned reputation for creating fantastic universes from great IP, and 'Butthole Biscuits' has all the qualities for the same success baked in. We’re looking forward to working closely with them on this series and can’t wait to bring 'Butthole Biscuits' to life.”
