Animasia Studios from Malaysia, Agogo International (Hong Kong), and Spain’s Neptuno Films have agreed to co-produce the 2D animated action-adventure series Kung Fu Chicken (26×22).

The series follows the adventures of a kung fu-style protection agency called Golden Egg Securities. Edmund Chan, managing director of Animasia Studio, said the deals strengthened Animasia’s presence in Europe and China.

Another Malaysian company, Ed-Online Technologies, and Scrawl Studios in Singapore and the UK’s Bryant Whittle have signed to co-develop and co-produce animated pre-school series Red, Yellow & Blue (52 x 11 mins).

Animasia Studio and two other Malaysian companies – 2D and 3D specialist Backbone Entertainment and 3D animation expert Les Copaque – have agreed distribution deals with the US’s Latin Media Corporation.
