Cyber Group partners with France TV for new animated comedy ’50/50 Heroes’

During the 2020 MIFA in Annecy, France, Cyber Group Studios announced that its new animated series 50/50 Heroes, developed with pubcaster France Télévisions, is heading into production this June. Key European broadcaster partners are soon to be announced. The 52×11’ 2D-HD comedy series, aimed at children six to 10 years old, follows the adventures of Mo and Sam, half-brother and sister, aged 11 and nine. One day they find out that they have inherited some powers from their great-great-great-grandma who had a fling with a superhero many moons ago. But, as half-siblings, they must share these powers down the middle. Upshot: these two sorta superheroes run half as fast, turn half-invisible! No latex suits for these heroes, and no missions to save the planet. 50/50 Heroes is based on an original idea of Romain Gadiou and Chloé Sastre, co-writers of Cyber Group Studios’ Mirette Investigates and Tom Sawyer animated series.The series will be directed by the talented Cédric Fremeaux, who served as storyboard supervisor on the Chip ‘n’ Dale reboot. The series will be primarily produced out of Cyber Group’s Paris and Roubaix studios. 50/50 Heroes will utilise 2D techniques as well as an in-house special effects technology developed by the company’s R&D department. Broadcast partners for 50/50 Heroes will be announced in the months ahead.
