Toronto, Canada – February 4, 2016 – Corus Entertainment’s TELETOON and RADICAL SHEEP PRODUCTIONS have entered into a development deal for animated comedy SPRINKLE and the SWEET SUGAR MAGICS from Comedian, Writer and Creator Stephanie Kaliner.
SPRINKLE and the SWEET SUGAR MAGICS is an 11-minute comedy for kids 6-9 about a character named Cara who is so shy she can’t get her husky little voice out in public. Till one magical Donut Day, when Cara picks the last donut-jelly filled, pink icing and sprinkles smooshed on one side. As Cara lifts it to her mouth- it comes to life! Now nothing will ever be the same.
“We are so excited to be working with Stephanie Kaliner to help bring Sprinkle to life. Stephanie has a unique and funny voice, and this project is a gem. We are thrilled to be working again with TELETOON,” says Michelle Melanson Cuperus , VP of Development and Production at Radical Sheep.
“It is a pleasure to collaborate with Radical Sheep on yet another unique concept from such a talented writer like Stephanie Kaliner” said Athena Georgaklis, Director of Content, TELETOON. “SPRINKLE and the SWEET SUGAR MAGIC delighted us from the moment we were introduced to the project and we are thrilled to help bring it to life.”
