Emmy® Nominated Show Greenlit with France Télévisions, Canal+ and Super RTL
Leading creative content studio TeamTO and top kids entertainment specialist CAKE are pleased to announce the greenlighting of a fifth ANGELO RULES series with co-production partners France Télévisions, Canal+ and Super RTL.
The launch of ANGELO RULES Season 5 (1 x 60’ + 46 x 11’) will kick off with Angelo’s first ever Christmas comedy special which will be broadcast on Canal+ and Super RTL on Christmas day 2021. This year, Angelo finds himself on Santa’s naughty list and gets stuck reliving the day before Christmas over and over again, in a nightmarish yuletide time loop. In order to escape, Angelo’s going to need a team, a plan and – a friend who speaks elf!
The full 5th Season of ANGELO RULES will launch in France and Germany in 2022 and will introduce a brand-new rival: West Side Academy, a shiny, fancy, modern school. Rumor has it they have a pool, a dairy farm, a green roof where kids grow their own lunch, a surf club, a black-box theater, a music recording studio, and more. The ongoing battle between the two schools gives Angelo and friends the opportunity to ally with some of their old rivals, like Tracy, Mr. Foot, and Manetti. Now that they all have a common enemy, get ready for some epic Angelo mayhem!
Corinne Kouper, SVP Development & Production, TeamTO, commented “After more than ten successful, fun-filled years on air, it was about time Angelo starred in his own feature length adventure. Angelo’s original take on the spirit of Christmas is sure to make sparks fly!”
Tom van Waveren, CEO & Exec Producer at CAKE said, “It’s rare to have the privilege of producing five seasons of a series and it’s very rewarding to keep bringing more Angelo stories to millions of Angelo fans.”
Aired in over 100 territories on premium platforms like Cartoon Network (EMEA, Latin America, Asia), France Télévisions, Super RTL and Canal +, ANGELO RULES has consistently secured great ratings on TV, and the digital world as well: the series’ four digital games (ANGELO SKATE AWAY, A BUSY DAY, SUPER RUN and FUNNY FACES) have been downloaded over 6 million times!
ANGELO RULES has also been widely recognized within the animation industry, receiving a Pulcinella Award for Best Kids TV Series (Cartoons on the Bay 2010); and nominations at the 2013 Emmy® Kids Awards; 2013 Trickfilm Festival; 2012 Anima Mundi; and 2011 BANFF World Media Festival.
ANGELO RULES is a TeamTO/CAKE co-production with TeleTOON+ in collaboration with France Télévisions and Super RTL. Based on the French series of books Comment Faire Enrager, written by Sylvie de Mathuisieulx and illustrated by Sébastien Diologent, the series is produced in association with IRP (Amy Jackson and Andy Rheingold).
