Today it was announced that DHX Media and Turner Broadcasting System made an international broadcasting rights deal for the new 3D CGI Inspector Gadget 26 episode series which will air on Boomerang feeds in Europe, Middle East and Africa, Asia-Pacific and Latin America areas. Boomerang will continue revamping their international feeds next year and the new Inspector Gadget series has been included as part of the network’s programming lineup in 2015.
The new series was originally commissioned by Canadian network Teletoon and all of the main original characters such as Penny, Brain and Dr Claw will be returning in the new series. The new series will be a continuation and not a reboot, Dr Claw has reestablished his MAD crime organisation and as a result Inspector Gadget has returned from retirement.
Josh Scherba, DHX Media’s Senior Vice-President of Distribution made this statement regarding the new Inspector Gadget series:
“Inspector Gadget is one of those classic properties that’s perfect for a contemporary version. It combines humour, mystery and zany accessories that audiences the world over will wish they had. This series has been updated for the next generation of gadget-savvy kids and our deals with these new broadcast partners will ensure Inspector Gadget will ‘go-go’ to new fans.”
