Los Angeles, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/21/2014 -- “We are incredibly excited to be working with Genesis on bringing one of our two feature titles, Galactic Academy, to the small screen as a weekly series. Genesis has a wonderful track record in kid’s and family television. A few of the shows currently on the Genesis slate include the worldwide hit Hi-5 and the upcoming series Apollo Rex,” says Wonder CEO Al Ovadia.
Genesis will manage all aspects of the series from development through production. Genesis will also handle sales of the series worldwide via Genesis's extensive global broadcast and streaming relationships. Genesis' cooperation was inspired by Wonder's previously developed feature screenplay Galactic Academy: an out-of-this-world comedy adventure whose robotic characters attend a fictional high school on a distant planet.
Rick Romano, CEO of Genesis says “We are extremely excited to adapt Wonder's previously developed feature screenplay Galactic Academy into a television series. It is a show that while being funny and fun to watch will also have educational values, teach kids right from wrong, and most importantly provide kids worldwide the knowledge that working hard and believing in your self does pay off.”
