MERCURY FILMWORKS AND TECHNICOLOR FINALIZE DEVELOPMENT DEAL WITH
TELETOON CANADA 
FOR NEW ANIMATED TELEVISION SERIES,
ATOMIC PUPPET 
Ottawa, Canada & Paris, France - (January 29, 2013) - Canada's
Mercury Filmworks
and  Paris-based  Technicolor (Euronext  Paris: TCH)
 today  jointly announce a development  deal with  TELETOON Canada 
for animated  comedy television series,
Atomic Puppet. 
Mercury  Filmworks, Technicolor and TELETOON will  co-develop Atomic
Puppet as a 2D animated  comedy  series  targeting  kids  6-11. Atomic
Puppet was created by animated television writer Mark Drop (Matt
Hatter Chronicles, Jake and the Never
Land Pirates) and
writer/creator Jerry Leibowitz (The Mouse and the Monster). 
In  Atomic Puppet,  when Model  City's fearless  superhero is
transformed into a powerless puppet by his disgruntled sidekick, the
hero's powers are accidentally
transferred  to his biggest fan,
12-year old Joey Felt. Together the two form an awkward  and comedic 
partnership as  they strive  to become the city's greatest
superhero
team. 
"We're  thrilled to have TELETOON on board  to help us put the
finishing touches
on Atomic Puppet's cross-platform development plan,"
said Clint Eland, President
&  Executive Producer of Mercury
Filmworks.  "Technicolor has been such a strong
partner  throughout
development that  adding our friends  at TELETOON becomes an
embarrassment of creative riches for the property." 
"We  believe  that  TELETOON  is  the  ideal  partner  for Atomic
Puppet, as the network's  audience and its programming fit perfectly
with the comedy and action
of  this  hilarious  animated  series," 
added  Steven Wendland, Vice President,
Technicolor. 
"Atomic  Puppet is  just the  kind of  quirky, high-octane comedy
that resonates
with  fans of TELETOON,"  said Alan Gregg,  Director,
Original Content, TELETOON
Canada.  "We're  delighted  to  join 
forces  with  the highly-talented teams at Mercury Filmworks and
Technicolor." 
Mercury Filmworks and Technicolor will be presenting Atomic Puppet at
Kidscreen
Summit in February 2013 to potential broadcast partners
around the world.
