Toronto-based producer/distributor 9 Story Entertainment has picked up the animated sitcom Ben's City (13x22') and will take it to MipTV.
The series, from Montreal-based Oasis Animation, is based on the work of Francophone comedian Françoise Pérusse, parodying daily life in a big cosmopolitan city and its suburbs. A French-language version, Pérusse Cité, was commissioned by Canada's SRC, while an English version has landed at CBC.
"The popularity of François Pérusse's extensive body of work in France and French-speaking Europe, as well as at home in Quebec, coupled with Oasis Animation's expert execution of François' unique concept, will serve to quickly attract a strong and loyal following for Ben's City," said 9 Story executive VP of business development Natalie Osborne.
