iStory Animation Studios, a spinoff of Laser Pegs® Ventures LLC, announced today that it has signed an Agreement with DQ Entertainment International, a global entertainment production and distribution company, to develop and produce a 52 episode x 11 minute Peg Heads® CGI animated series that will be proposed to international broadcasters. The characters will also be available as a line of toys that are compatible with Laser Pegs.
The Peg Heads story line is being written by four time Emmy Award winning writer Jeffrey Scott and is based on three characters created by Jon Capriola (founder of iStory and Laser Pegs) that endeavor to “Light Up” the world with their plug–‐and–‐play illuminated body parts and add-on accessories.
“Peg Heads is a truly unique property that has multi-dimensional characters, offers a startling storyline, and lastly promote acceptance and diversity in the worldwide market,” said Jon Capriola, CEO of iStory Animation.
“We are extremely proud to announce our relationship with iStory Animation,” says Tapaas Chakravarti, CEO of DQ Entertainment. “There is something really special about this property that only comes around once in a great while. We intend to partner with iStory on Peg Heads and build a global brand with the launch of this series in 2016.”
