CAKE ANNOUNCES INTERNATIONAL LAUNCH OF JOREL’S BROTHER

30 Sep - 2020

CAKE has announced a distribution agreement with Copa Studio for its hit comedy Jorel’s Brother

Leading kids’ entertainment specialist CAKE, has announced a distribution agreement with Brazilian animation studio Copa Studio for its hit comedy Jorel’s Brother.

CAKE will have worldwide rights excluding Latin America to 104 episodes of the multi-award winning Brazilian animated comedy, coproduced with Cartoon Network Latin America.

Jorel’s Brother (104 x 11’ & 18 x 2’) follows the daily adventures of a shy and nameless 9-year old boy, who is overshadowed by his more infamous sibling.  Jorel’s brother tries to be as popular as Jorel, but while he ultimately lives to fail, he always finds an absurd solution when dealing with his unusual and eccentric family, friends and school and it is his impressive ability to be known to everyone as Jorel’s brother, that leads him to star in a series of his own.

Aimed at 8-11 year olds, Jorel’s Brother, (Irmão do Jorel or Hermano de Jorel) was created by and based on the childhood of well-known Brazilian celebrity actor, director, writer and MTV presenter Juliano Enrico, who also voices Jorel.

Jorel’s Brother was the first series to be produced by Cartoon Network in Latin America and quickly amassed a devoted fanbase after premiering on the network in 2014. Most recently, Jorel’s Brother was nominated for an International Emmy for Best Animated Series. A fourth season is set to air next year.

Ed Galton, CCO & Managing Director at CAKE saidJorel’s Brother is a hilarious take on how it feels to be sidelined by someone who is more charismatic and popular, something we can all relate to! We are delighted to be working with Copa Studio once again and thrilled to be introducing this successful series to an international audience for the first time.”

Zé Brandão, Producer of Jorel’s Brother and partner and co-founder of Copa Studio said, “Jorel’s Brother is our biggest property. Recognised by the industry and loved by audiences, it has become a huge cultural phenomenon in Brazil with a devoted fanbase that spans generations. With CAKE on board as our international distributor, we look forward to introducing the series to the rest of the world and inviting viewers to dive into the funny, wacky and diverse world of Jorel’s Brother.
