The German co-production group TV-Toonland has sold the license of its anime- and manga-inspired animated TV series My Life Me to Classic Media after filing for bankruptcy. Graphic novel artist Svetlana Chmakova (Dramacon) was one of the original creators of the series, and also serves as the art director. Production for the series is being handled by Montreal-based CarpeDiem TV and Film.
The teen slice-of-life comedy follows Birch Small, a manga and anime fan with aspirations of being a comic artist, as she tries to survive high school. The 52-episode series, with each episode running at 11 minutes, features Japanese anime and manga trademarks such as sweatdrops, speech bubbles, and super-deformed chibi characters. My Life Me will also include other media tie-ins, such as music video clips and a heavily-interactive website component.
My Life Me is still scheduled to air in selected territories this year, with broadcast schedules already slated for TV stations in Canada and France.
