Turner France has taken the series for Boing in France and in its French-speaking territories in Europe and Africa. In words of Joy Rosen, co-founder & CEO, Portfolio Entertainment, “While still in production, Freaktown has grabbed the attention of buyers globally and we are thrilled to land international deals with world-renowned broadcasters right out of the gate. This series is crammed with laugh-out-loud moments and unpredictable twists that will perfectly complement the highly-entertaining programming available on these major kids’ networks.” ‘Freaktown’ follows the adventures of skeleton Ben Bones and his freaky friends as they protect their town from takeover by Princess Boo Boo the Bouncy of Sweetlandia.
