CIG's animation series Filly Funtasia, produced in 3D and HD and distributed by BRB Internacional, is to air on Discovery Italy's children's' channel K2 in early 2016.

Filly Funtasia (26x30') will present all its latest news under the aegis of BRB Internacional and Dracco at Cannes. The series tells the adventures of a group of Fillys - unicorns, elves, fairies, princesses and witches - at the Royal Academy of Magic in Funtasia.

The brand Filly, from the developer and producer Dracco and based on tiny velvet collectible Fillys, has millions of fans internationally who have even started creating their own user-generated content with hundreds of thousands of online views and millions of magazines sold in many countries.

Filly Funtasia comes with a powerful 360º strategy by Dracco, and will have a strong presence on new broadcast platforms such as YouTube, smart TV apps and video-on-demand (VOD) channels.

The series relies on a high-level team of screenwriters including Sean Derek (The Smurfs, Pac-Man, ZhuZhu Pets), Noelle Wright (Sabrina, Sofia the First, Doc McStuffins), Dean Stefan (Penguins of Madagascar, Trollz), Jymn Magon (The Smurfs, Pac-Man, Strawberry Shortcake), Johnny Hartman (Monster High, The Nut Job, Bolts&Blips) and Frank Young (Totally Spies, Martin Mystery, Paw Patrol).
