Voopa the Goolash was a massive hit on the red carpet at Miptv last week causing great interest and signing deals.
The Adventures of Voopa the Goolash, distributed by UK Distributor The Production Team, signed 9 deals for territories, including Italy, Bulgaria and Russia.
Mediaset Italy, TV7 Bulgaria, and Content Union Russia are just a few of the names who have deals for the first series of 13 x22 for broadcast in September 2008.
Joel Churcher, International Sales Director of The Production team said, “Voopa the Goolash is an innovative unique show, that provides something different for TV broadcasters and we are very excited at the deals we’ve signed with many more in the pipeline”
Nadia Kostova of TV7 said, “When I saw the trailer of “Voopa the Goolash” I was really impressed: It’s extremely cute, funny and unusual. From what I saw the script is witty, original and interesting. I believe the series has a great potential. Relying on my experience and intuition, I’m quite sure it will be a hit!”
Dmitri Pleshkov of Cinemax said, “ I liked Voopa it as soon as I saw it and my son was also amazed when he saw him too, Voopa will be perfect for our territories”
The series, conceived in South Africa and produced in New Zealand, was written by Charles Hodges of Shaun the Sheep and Dennis the Menace fame. Voopa the Goolash is an epic tale; a heroic story of paradise lost and regained with a powerful "ethos" at its core - infusing the audience with important and currently desirable values: care of the environment, respect for one another, the power of cause and effect and the ability to both create and destroy.
It is a compelling unique concept for children with 13 episodes already made and ready for broadcast with the intention of a further 26, making a TV series that will enhance the powerful licensing and interactive merchandising opportunities that will follow.
