Kidcaster Kabillion has picked up transmedia title GeoFreakz from Toronto’s CCI Entertainment and will carry it on its network, gaming and VoD services in the US.
The property includes 40 mini-episodes, a multi-player online and real-world game. It is based on the outdoor activity known as geocaching – treasure hunting with the help of a GPS receiver.
Kabillion will launch the series on its VoD service on August 18 while the game will be hosted on its partner site yoursphere.com.
GeoFreakz is aimed at boys and girls aged 8-12 and currently airs in Canada on Teletoon.
“Geocaching is rapidly growing on a global level and we are happy to be bringing it to kids and families,” said CCI co-chairman and CEO Arnie Zipursky.
