Dentsu, Nelvana, Fuel Ent. to Develop Animated Chub City Show
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Dentsu Entertainment USA announced last week that it signed a development agreement with Nelvana Enterprises and Fuel Entertainment to create the planned animated series Chub City based on the titular titled toy brand.
Dentsu describes the action comedy:
The series follows the adventures of a team of heroic teenagers who drive customized cars at Chub City battle rallies. These rally sites pop-up spontaneously in different parts of the world, with teams arriving by train, ship, truck and helicopter in container units called Convos™ that become the building blocks for these instant cities. The stories find humor in the relationships of the diverse team of drivers and the awkward bond that forms with their more logical sentient cars, all while battling to recover a powerful hidden energy source.
The company is currently seeking product and broadcast partners.
Dentsu Entertainment USA is also bringing its property Little Battlers eXperience (Danbōru Senki) to the United States.
