Martians Have Landed - New Animated Series in Development
“The Martian’s have indeed landed! In fact they must be planning to stay as they’ve incorporated in the state of California and set up a command post at MightyMartians.com!”
This announcement was made today by Lance Robbins, President of Lance H. Robbins Entertainment Group, former President of Fox Family and Saban (creators of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Ninja Turtles, and dozens of other highly acclaimed titles), and David Krieff, President of Destiny Productions. Lance and David are the first two humans to form an alliance with Martians Incorporated to executive-produce a weekly live action adventure animation series for TV, DVD and all other entertainment platforms appealing to children 6 to 12 years of age entitled “Mighty Martians”.
Based on the success of “Martians Incorporated”
Being Martians, the media rush all available paparazzi to cover their arrival—but instead of conquering the planet with ray guns, the Martians make a CD which becomes an overnight hit and the group becomes the most sought after intergalactic musical phenomenon in the universe. Without passports, birth certificates or other proof that they actually are Martians, Earthlings believe all this Martian business is really a publicity stunt to promote their CD.
So they remain stranded on Earth with little hope of returning home. Maybe they can find a way back through time and the wormhole? Maybe they’ll be a positive influence on our younger generation while they’re here? Maybe the adventures of this wholesome group with funny names and high moral standards, socially responsible behavior, and proper etiquette and manners will ??? (to be continued in the series).
“Kids will love these cool Martians,” said Krieff who partnered with Robbins on a number of broadcast and pay-for TV projects including the TV movie “Ice Angel”.
“Mighty Martians” will be a unique, highly stylized 3d action series with a stunning visual look that will be embraced by kids everywhere,”
“Mighty Martians” will become a staple on TV,” said Robbins, who has been a leader in live-action single-camera series specializing in kid, teen and young adult programming, and an executive producer/creator of more than 17 series, which include some of the biggest hits on cable, syndication and network. “We have brought together a team that includes award winning writers, graphic artists, musicians and sound designers (not to mention some very talented Martians) and the creative staff of Martians Incorporated,”
“Tours are already in the works,” added Robbins. “Mighty Martians” will be the biggest thing in entertainment for kids since the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Hannah Montana and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Earth will just never be the same!” he concluded.
David Krieff—whose independent and co-operative ventures have included original TV specials, film, interactive media, home video, infomercials and live events, shared Mr. Robbins’ sentiments. "We're in this for the long haul," Krieff said. "We've got a number of episodes in the series already in development and plan to be releasing 26 a year. We see the enthusiasm growing as visitors to the website, mightymartians.com, meet the characters and learn more about the upcoming TV shows. We can feel the excitement growing as we begin to bring this highly anticipated title to the multi-platform and massive TV markets."
Current negotiations with internationally prominent animation studios in relation to joint-
ventures and co-production agreements. Additionally, numerous discussions are continuing with numerous entertainment content providers, publishers, studios, toy manufacturers and investment funds regarding their participation in the licensing and distribution revenues.
Currently scheduled for a February, 2009 introduction that includes mobisodes that link in with the Internet characters and is supported by a full-blown ad campaign, you might want to charge the batteries in your IPods and get ready to listen to the ‘music of the spheres’.
