DHX Media, a key player internationally in the creation of content for families and children, announces numerous broadcast deals for Inspector Gadget (26 x 22’), its brand-new CGI series, which is an update of the classic kids’ cartoon.
Turner Broadcasting has taken the series for its Boomerang channels across EMEA, Latin America and Asia Pacific.
Josh Scherba, SVP Distribution at DHX Media says: “Inspector Gadget is one of those classic properties that’s perfect for a contemporary version. It combines humour, mystery and zany accessories that audiences the world over will wish they had. This series has been updated for the next generation of gadget-savvy kids and our deals with these new broadcast partners will ensure Inspector Gadget will ‘go-go’ to new fans.”
Inspector Gadget is back! Dr. Claw has reactivated his global crime syndicate MAD and the bumbling, multi-tasking detective has been brought out of retirement to save the world! Tagging along with Gadget is his niece Penny and her trusty dog, Brain.
Now an agent in training, Penny uses her intelligence, martial arts and high-tech gear to keep her clumsy Uncle Gadget safe from harm – but it won’t be easy! Dr. Claw has a secret weapon: his handsome nephew Talon, who is eager to learn a little old-school evil as they try to take over the world.
Inspector Gadget was commissioned by TELETOON in Canada and will premiere on the network in 2015.
