Atomic And Sticky Pictures Sail Into Production On Original Show Pirate Express

(Vancouver, BC) – Atomic Cartoons original animated television comedy series has set sail and premiered on Canada’s TELETOON at the end of April and will continue to sail on throughout the summer. This fun-filled series for kids aged 7 to 11 is set for broadcast on Nine Network Australia in the fall of 2015.

The series follows the adventures of Newt, a 12 year old boy from Atlantis and the most dim witted crew on the seven seas, onboard the ship Pirate Express. Newt’s father, Poseidon, has made Newt the captain of the Pirate Express. His mission? To keep the former Captain LaPoutine, and his crazy crew, from mischief and trouble.

“We’re excited to see this fabulous and funny original show on the air” says Rob Davies, partner at Atomic Cartoons. “We’ve worked with such great partners as TELETOON Canada, Sticky Pictures and Nine.”
