DQ Entertainment to collaborate with French companies to make TV series

Hyderabad-based gaming and animation major DQ Entertainment Ltd (DQE) has entered into an agreement with France’s M6 Studio and Method Animation SA for the co-production of a TV series based on the iconic brand ‘Le petit Nicolas’ (Little Nick).

Little Nick, created by René Goscinny and illustrated by Jean-Jacques Sempé, was first published in 1959. Since then, this French cartoon has sold over 10 million copies in 30 countries. Little Nick is an illustration of an ideal childhood and a nostalgic memory of the 1950s.

M6 Studio, an animation production subsidiary of M6, has decided to use this image for television animation production with DQE and Method Animation as a tripartite co-production.

Natalie Altmann, Head of Children’s Programmes at M6 and Deputy Manager of M6 Studio, said, “The dialogue and humour of Goscinny, the father of Asterix, are so unique and subtle, and the graphic talent of Sempé is so sensitive, that we needed to surrender ourselves with the best artistic teams in the animation industry. The association of Method Animation and DQE on this great project is, for me, the best possible choice.”

Commenting on the tripartite agreement, Tapas Chakravarti, Chairman and CEO of DQ Entertainment, said, “We are delighted to be associated with this production alongside M6 Studio and Method Animation, France. 2009 will mark the 50th Anniversary of Little Nick, and we feel honoured to be involved in this animated project and celebrating the legacy of this iconic cartoon.”
