Maya Entertainment bags UK and US projects


    Mumbai: On the heels of its delivery of animated series Cosmic Quantum Ray for Mike Young Productions, Tronji for BBC and Lively for Google, Maya Entertainment has been awarded two more international TV projects.

    MEL will be working on an updated season of the Noddy series comprising 40 episodes, for Ireland based Brown Bag Entertainment. One of the most famous and beloved characters in the world of children’s literature by Enid Blyton, Noddy has also been a hit TV series seen worldwide in the past. The new update, in 3D, is commissioned by Channel 5 in UK and also will be seen on France 5.

    Building on its work on the BoomDi hiphop video, which hit the Top Ten Billboard charts in the US, Maya Entertainment will also be working on a 3D animated update of the hit 2D series Da Jammies about a group of children who dream of forming a hip hop band.

    Maya Entertainment CEO Ronald D’mello said, "We are taking these projects immediately after recently concluding three very successful large projects, hence the experienced teams will transition smoothly with minimal bench time and we will avoid over-commitment. The order book beyond these projects also looks very strong with additional commitments from Mike Young, another UK children’s’ series pilot and several advanced conversations in TV and new media, beyond this fiscal year."
