My Life Me, a new animated series created by Svetlana Chmakova of Tokyopop’s Dramacon and animation vets JC Little and Cindy Filipenko, is going into production for an eventual fall 2009 release. Fifty-two 11-minute episodes are slated, along with 26 original shorts for mobile and VoD platforms. The target audience is kids 8-12.
The show will be produced using digital animation, and will use manga aesthetics, including black and white comic panels that drop behind the characters to express their suppressed feelings on screen. A planned Website will also use manga elements, including the ability for users to create their own manga using how-to-draw tutorials or actual elements from the series.
The comedy storyline concerns four lead characters trying to make sense of tween life.
Merchandise, including publishing, accessories, gifts, stationery, and apparel are planned.
TV-Loonland and CarpeDiem Film & TV are producing, backed by Canadian broadcaster Teletoon
