CAKE Producing Long-Form Angry Birds Series


Rovio Entertainment has tapped CAKE to produce the first long-form animated Angry Birds series.

Based on the world of the Angry Birds franchise, the show will be aimed at 6- to 12-year-olds and fans of all ages. The series is expected to launch in 2020. Currently in development with CAKE, the new format marks the first foray by Rovio into long-form series content.

Tom van Waveren, CEO and creative director at CAKE, said, “Long-form content marks the obvious next step in extending the Angry Birds brand on the small screen. We are really proud to have the opportunity to create a series based on a successful global franchise and we hope this will be the first of many collaborations.”

Joe Lawson, senior VP of content licensing for Rovio, said, “We are thrilled to explore hilarious new Angry Birds adventures in this long-form animated series. This is another major milestone in Rovio’s multiyear content licensing roadmap, our strongest ever, and we can’t imagine doing it with anyone other than our long-term partners at CAKE.”
