Paris, France and London, UK - Top French CGI studio TeamTO and leading kids entertainment specialist CAKE have announced the production of a fourth season of International Emmy®-nominated animated hit series Angelo Rules.
The multi-award winning comedy stars 11-year-old Angelo, a sweet-talking genius with a knack for getting out of trouble. The fourth season will keep fans on the edge of their seats with new plot twists, on-trend technology including virtual reality, crowdfunding, skype and social media as well as introducing brand new characters, who add a fun new dynamic to Angelo’s gang. Consisting of 52 x 11 minutes bringing the total number of episodes to 234, the fourth season will debut on TeleTOON+ and Super RTL in early 2018.
Laurence Blaevoet, Director of Kids Division, Canal + commented, “Angelo Rules is THE most popular show for 6-11 year olds on TeleTOON+. This fourth season is sure to be the funniest and most fun-filled so far – with ever more zany advice from everyone’s favorite hero, Angelo!”
Carsten Göttel, Director of Programming at Super RTL said, “Angelo offers action-packed adventures in a relatable setting. Dynamic characters combined with striking visuals and compelling storytelling make Angelo Rules a perfect fit for Super RTL and we are very much looking forward to a new season of this top-performing series.”
Corinne Kouper, Producer and Co-Founder of TeamTO added, “For this 4th season we have brought in two exceptional directors, Siggraph/Imagina winner Max Maleo and Oscar nominated Thierry Marchand. Their common passion for Manga and Thierry’s experience on Dreamworks' feature Madagascar, will bring a cutting edge to the characters as well as the storytelling, and give the show the cinematic look for which TeamTO’s TV series are known.”
Tom van Waveren, CEO & Creative Director at CAKE said, “It’s a rare privilege to get a chance to produce a full fourth season of an animation series. The fact that we have this opportunity on Angelo Rules is a tribute to the property and the wonderful team that has shaped and looked after Angelo over the years, our partners and Angelo’s many fans.”
Angelo Rules became an instant hit when it debuted in 2010 and has aired in over 100 countries, including on Cartoon Network EMEA, Asia and Latin America where it has been broadcasting continuously since its launch.
