MUMBAI: Turner Broadcasting has
announced that it has completed the
global acquisition of the new animated
series ‘Grizzy and the Lemmings’ for
its second flagship kids channel
Boomerang, which will debut its first-
ever original programming beginning
this month.
The series will join Boomerang’s
existing portfolio of funny, multi-
generational shows that include ‘The
‘Tom and Jerry Show’, ‘Scooby-Doo’
and ‘Mr Bean: The Animated Series’.
It will launch worldwide beginning
autumn 2016.
Turner, Cartoon Network and
Boomerang US VP acquisitions and co-
productions Adina Pitt said, “Following
our most recent worldwide multi-
original series deal with Warner Bros
for Boomerang, this acquisition
continues our overall strategy to
build Boomerang as a strong second
flagship global kids network,
complementary to Cartoon Network.”
From the French production company
Studio Hari, ‘Grizzy and the
Lemmings’ is a non-dialogue, playful
family comedy. The series follows the
hilarious exchanges of Grizzy the
bear and a pesky tribe of Lemmings, as
they attempt to co-exist in a forest
ranger’s house in the Canadian
Turner Broadcasting International VP
acquisitions and co-productions
Cecilia Persson said, “Grizzy and the
Lemmings is fun and innovative whilst
also maintaining the DNA of a
timeless, classic animation. It is a
great fit for the Boomerang brand and
will sit perfectly alongside content
like the much-loved Hannah-Barbera
classic, Tom and Jerry.”
Studio Hari co-founder Josselin
Charier stated, “We couldn’t expect
to find a broadcasting partner more
aligned with the editorial positioning
of our latest creation, a new classic
physical comedy for the whole family.
We know that Grizzy and the
Lemmings have found in Boomerang
their real home: a place to live and
fight with each other for a long time.
The worldwide broadcasting on
Boomerang will give the best possible
exposure to the show and help us to
make Grizzy and the Lemmings a
strong long-term global brand, just
like the loveable classic cartoons in
its portfolio.”
