DLT ENTERTAINMENT IS GOING BUGGS!

Signs deal for worldwide rights to fantasy animation series/

(London May 14, 2003) Leading independent production and distribution company DLT Entertainment is further bolstering its slate of animated properties, picking up the international rights to the exciting new series Going Buggs!

Created by Al Guest and Jean Mathieson, whose previous work has aired on CBS, HBO and the BBC, Going Buggs! is an innovative CGI and cell animated comic action fantasy series. Magic Shadows Inc and Red Rocket Animation have co-produced the 13 x 30-minute series.

Going Buggs! tells the tale of a web-surfing brother and sister who, without warning, are caught up in a quantum storm. Finding themselves in an alternative universe, which is ruled by bugs, they are forced to call on all their computer skills to survive. Each episode follows the siblings on a different adventure as they come to realise, whilst slowly ‘going buggs’, that it is only by working together that they can overcome the obstacles in their paths.

DLT Entertainment will be distributing Going Buggs! internationally, alongside its other animated properties Animated Classics and Little Big Mouth.

Don Taffner Jr, Vice President of DLT Entertainment, said: “DLT Entertainment is constantly seeking to expand its catalogue of programming and we are delighted with our latest acquisition. Going Buggs! is an unique action-filled animated series which we are confident will prove popular with buyers around the world.”
