Kids’ entertainment specialist Cake is partnering with DCM Pictures and Boulder Media on 2D adventure comedy series Amelia Fang, aimed at 6-9 year olds.

The series is inspired by the fang-tastic books written and illustrated by Laura Ellen Anderson, which have sold over half a million copies in the UK and have been translated into 24 languages.

Amelia Fang will be produced by DCM Pictures (Bibi & Tina) with animation led by Boulder Media in Dublin and directed by Robert Cullen (Gumball, Danger Mouse and My Little Pony). The writing team is led by Elly Brewer (Shaun The Sheep, Postman Pat, Thunderbirds, The Story Of Tracy Beaker ).  Cake will handle all international distribution.

Set in an unusual world full of eccentric characters, the series follows the funny adventures of a young vampire with a big heart, Amelia Fang, and her diverse gang of friends. Here, there are always wrongs that need righting, mysteries that need solving and creatures who need rescuing – but whatever the adventure, Amelia and her pals always manage to save the day in their own way.

48 x 11 minute episodes and two x 22 minute specials will be produced.

Ed Galton, ceo at Cake and executive producer on Amelia Fang said, “Amelia Fang is full of heart, warmth and big adventure.”

Philippa Tsang, Marc Schmidheiny and Christoph Daniels at DCM Pictures and executive producers on Amelia Fang said, “Amelia Fang is joyful, funny and at its heart, it is a show about embracing difference in our society.”

Robert Cullen, founder and creative director at Boulder Media and Director on Amelia Fang added, “Bursting with charm, comedy and adventure, Amelia Fang also carries a wonderful message of acceptance at its heart.”
