Vincennes, Boulogne-Billancourt, September 7th, 2011 — TFOU and Alphanim (Gaumont Group) are partnering on the development of the new 104×11’ CGI Calimero series, based on the character created in 1963 by Pagot.
Kids 4 to 7 will discover the adventures of lil’ black chick Calimero and his friends Priscilla and Valeriano. His cult phrase Â« It’s just not fair! Â» will be the starting point of new adventures and the opportunity for Calimero to set things right.
Delivery is scheduled for the brand’s 50th anniversary in 2013.
Alphanim will distribute the programme and manage the brand internationally on behalf of Calidra, the right owner. TF1 Licences was appointed agent for France while TF1 Vidéo acquired video rights to the future series.
