GO SPACE KNIGHTS GO!
FATKAT’s “SPACE KNIGHTS” green-lit for The Detour on TELETOON Pilot Project.
Toronto, ON and Miramichi, NB – Viewers will be tuning in to TELETOON for the fall ‘08 debut of Fatkat Inc.’s SPACE KNIGHTS, as a part of The Detour on TELETOON Pilot Project. A recent initiative of TELETOON, The Pilot Project invites producers to submit new, no-holds-barred comedy to be broadcast on The Detour on TELETOON, the network’s popular teen/adult orientated programming block.
Created by FATKAT, SPACE KNIGHTS is an animated parody of super hero cartoons of the late 90’s. The SPACE KNIGHTS are a group of slightly outdated superheroes who drive Honda accords that when linked together, can transform into a variety of giant robots, from a pterodactyl, to a giant T-Rex, to a saber tooth tiger. They use these and other powers to stop a never ending stream of bizarre creatures and insane villains. The irreverent comedy follows the misshapen adventures of the crime-fighting team who must battle bickering and in-fighting almost as much as the external foes they face.
“FATKAT is thrilled to be working with TELETOON” says Andrew Dunn - FATKAT’s VP of Business Development. “We look forward to finding SPACE KNIGHTS home on The Detour. We are so glad to be working with such a great Canadian company” Dunn added.
