Coming in 2013: Teenage Fairytale Dropouts

From Teenage Fairytale Dropouts Gets Happy Ending by Ramin Zahed:

Anima Estudios (Mexico), SLR Productions (Australia) Home Plate Entertainment (U.S.) and Telegael (Ireland) have announced that their new animated co-pro Teenage Fairytale Dropouts has been greenlit. The 52 x 11’ comedy TV series centers on three best friends and children of famous fairytale characters who are determined to be themselves, regardless of what their parents want them to be.
The series is slated for broadcast in 2013 but not distribution information is available yet.
And for more info on the series, this is from one production company's website, SLR Productions:


It's tough being a teenager. School. Family. Social life. Social networks. It's a lot of pressure, especially if you're expected to follow in your parents’ footsteps and become, say, a doctor or a lawyer or a giant or a… Hey, wait a minute. A giant?!

Yes. A giant. Or worse, a Tooth Fairy.

Now that’s pressure.

So imagine if your parents were iconic fairytale characters with celebrity status who can cast amazing spells, fly on tiny fairy wings or take out an entire village with a single stomp of their big toe? Wouldn’t that make your teen life even harder?

Yup. Especially if you're like Jeremiah, Trafalgar and Fury and you've got your own ideas about what’s important in life!

Fairy Tale Estates is a fantastical world where people live in shoes and gingerbread houses. The highest-rating reality show is about three pigs and a wolf trying to make a go of it in a one-bedroom cottage. Despite the enchanted setting Jeremiah, Trafalgar and Fury have typical teen dramas with their family, friends and school, only with a fairy tale twist!

A little more from “Teenage Fairytale Dropouts” Greenlit for Animated Series by Chris Arrant:

Jeremiah maybe the son of The Giant from Jack and the Beanstalk but that doesn’t mean he’s going to follow in his father’s enormous footsteps, stomping villages and eating people. Besides, he still has some growing up to do, literally. Jeremiah may be a tween but he’s still waiting for his “giant” growth spurt.

And Fury, maybe the daughter of the Tooth Fairy but dental remuneration is not in her future — “way too creepy”. Plus, there’s the embarrassing fact that her fairy wings haven’t…ah… sprouted yet. Then there’s Trafalgar, one of Merlin’s many nephews, who actually has potential — if he just didn’t lack so much focus in his hocus pocus.

Together this trio is out to prove that even in the wacky, up-side-down, unexpected world of Fairytale Estates – you can be your own giant, fairy or wizard – as long as you have your friends along for the “souped-up” pumpkin carriage ride of your life.
So what do you think about that fairy tale fans?
