UPDATE: THANK YOU KICKSTARTER! While we may not reach the goal through pledges of £1 - £5000, the Kickstarter project has raised HUGE awareness of the television series and attracted the attention of companies who wish to help fund the project. I am thrilled to say we are already in discussions which will hopefully result in production commencing soon! Thank you Kickstarter!
UPDATE : NEWS FROM CANNES TV FESTIVAL
- Here we are at the 4 day conference networking with TV broadcasters. So far broadcasters from 28 countries have pre-bought the TV rights. So exciting!
This is our stand - Formula FUN Entertainment is exhibiting on the UK INDIES stand - a hub for independent television producers. It's buzzing! Plus the Team Franco trailer is streaming on the DreamWorks Classics stand for all to see!
My name is Marina Nicholas, I am the creator of Team Franco. The inspiration for Team Franco came to me when my 4 year old son was trying to bond with his father, a motor racing fanatic.
What started as a boy's enthusiasm for his fathers passion for motor racing, can be launched as a 52 episode cartoon television series for children around the world to enjoy!
The Team Franco TV series– What is it about?
The World is an Amazing Place...Let's Explore it Race by Race!
The Team Franco television series brings the BIG world down to knee high level and introduces children to the amazing sights, sounds and sensations of six continents, using a cool racing concept as the vehicle of FUN!
6 year old Franco uses his imagination to transform his favourite cars into a top fuel global racing, Team Franco! With his trusted companion, Susie the Safety car, and ten sensational super powered racers, Franco brings RACEWORLD to life, spanning six continents racing from sandstorms in the desert to monsoons in the rainforest – but whatever trouble lies in store, Franco is there to make sure teamwork and co-operation win the day. Along the way, Franco and his friends learn all about fascinating cultures and customs, while navigating racing challenges.
Where shall we explore next? Let’s go someplace AMAZING!
The Team Franco television series will take children to the edge of their seats, and then all around the world!
