WWMO has licensed rights to 26 episodes of the hit Chinese animated series SKATEBOY AND THE QUEST TO CHINA, produced by Golden Ocean for CCTV (China Central Television), China’s #1 broadcaster. The animated series will be released in North America on DVD through Aristea Entertainment and Pierson Media. “This is the first of WWMO’s Far East ventures to bring quality Chinese programs to the West. With attention focused on the coming Olympics and major Chinese movie releases, we see evidence of the burgeoning market for Chinese media product,” reports Paul Hancock, President/CEO of WWMO.
Under its original title, FLUTEMASTER, SKATEBOY was one of the most popular programs ever aired on CCTV, reaching an audience of 140 million viewers during its broadcast in 2004.
Created and developed by Barry Glasser and produced by Glasser, Lili Deng and Louis Liu, SKATEBOY is the fantasy adventure of a California beach kid thrust into a breathtaking world of magic, mythical creatures and a mist-shrouded lost continent when he discovers an enchanted flute that awakens the Emperor of China and an evil sorcerer from an ancient spell. The series, which was developed in Hollywood and produced and animated in China, represents an unprecedented collaboration between American and Chinese animators and broadcasters.
On the corporate side, WWMO expects to close its Share Exchange with diversified partner Buckeye Ventures Inc. (Buckeye) and change in control of the corporation, as reported in its 8-K and 10-Q securities filings, by the end of the year. Hancock, together with Alan Mintz, CEO of Buckeye, report that, “Our initial target of $50-75 million in Home Services industry revenue through diversified acquisitions around the country is moving forward at a faster pace than expected, which would greatly increase shareholder value.”
