Dolph-N-Fince and Haley & The Hero Heart debuted at MIPCOM.

Ken Faier’s independent production company Epic Story Media (ESM) has signed major co-production agreements for two new animated series Dolph-N-Fince and Haley & The Hero Heart, which both make their international debut at MIPCOM. The deals follow ESM’s recent investment from Vancouver-based production and finance entity BRON Ventures.

Dolph-N-Fince is a co-production with Canadian independent Neptoon Studios, headed by award-winning Todd Kauffman and Mark Thornton (Looped, Grojband, Sidekick) and Paris-based Samka Animation (Jamie’s Got Tentacles, The Marsupilami, The Sisters).

Aimed at children aged 5-12, Dolph-N-Fince (52 x 11’) is a ‘fish out of water’ comedy about dolphin brothers who leave the ocean forever to live on land as guardians of Ocean King’s rebellious teenage daughter. The boys’ over-the-top personalities lead to crazy misadventures that always put Coral in the danger zone. If they blow this, their freedom and dolphin souls are “on the line”.

Haley & The Hero Heart is a co-production with Mowrer Meta-Story, headed by Kevin Mowrer. Aimed at girls aged 4-8, the 52 x 11’ series follows the adventures and life of Haley Commett, a young girl just turning 7 years old. Haley is a girl with an extra helping of emotions that often get her into trouble. This all changes for Haley when she is handed down a magical bracelet from her mother, The Hero Heart, which allows her to channel her feelings and transform into a helping hero. With each issue faced, The Hero Heart transforms Haley’s world into a big adventure which will help everyone grow up a little more along the way.

Ken Faier says: “ESM’s raison d’etre is to work with creative companies to build creator driven kids’ franchsies. These first two co-productions are a perfect example of the projects we will be producing – creative, fun, distinctive animation with a global appeal. We look forward to securing broadcast deals at MIPCOM”.

ESM will maintain global rights for distribution and merchandise management for both Haley & The Hero Heart alongside Dolph-N-Fince. For more details on available content and upcoming productions, visit epicstorymedia.com.
