The series will be produced in two versions, a standard television series and an interactive version which will feature the innovative gaming format 'Watch and Play' - a revolutionary system that allows the viewer to watch the series and play at the same time thanks to the mini-games integrated in each chapter. Scenes incorporated in the storyline will be played out by the viewer. This will be developed with VOD, online, interactive TV and games console platforms in mind. These videogames will also allow TVE to develop the interactive potential of its web offering around the series.
Tapaas Chakravarti, Chairman & CEO of DQE commented"The watch and play format will be a great attraction for the children viewing the series. We are sure that the combined synergies of DQE, Imira & Enne Animation will make Escape Hockey a great success worldwide".
GD Entertainment Fund will be making its inaugural visit to MIPCOM next month seeking investment in entertainment and digital IP across all entertainment genres.
Original Imira series Lucky Fred, co-produced with Televisió de Catalunya, Rai Fiction, Telegael and GSW Animation, is now in its second season and has its own geo-localized app, while new show Escape Hockey from DQ Entertainment features ‘watch & play’ technology.
Yes, it sure looks like it. I posted it on 10 Sep. Maybe it's just the formal passing of resolutions over there and nothing more. I think the really good period will come shortly after MIPCOM next month.
It's good that we're getting news of this deal - DQE aren't always very forthcoming with updates. A network deal in the US for one of our major products, albeit just in Spanish, is encouraging. However it would be nice to get some guidance on the potential financial impact.
I'd much rather have seen an update on the progress of the movie. The last I heard was that the script is up to its 7th iteration, but this was months ago. A high profile funding/distribution deal could have a serious impact on the SP.
On a different note, I was just reviewing the forecasts on my holdings and it seems the inaugural dividend for next year is currently expected to be around 3.5%, covered 9 times. Again, official guidance in this regard would be well received. This stock isn't on the radar of income investors, but if that projection holds up then it soon will be.
