Future Spotlight: Hareport
A lot has been said about originality over the years. While a few animated programs can claim to be original – a certain sponge who lives in a pineapple comes to mind – most animated programs have a premise that doesn’t really stand out when compared to the ones that came before it. Some believe that it has gotten worse over the past few years, with networks clamoring to copy their peers in a desperate attempt to find the next big thing. I stumbled across an animated program being developed for TF1 in France that amused me with its originality: Hareport.
From what I’ve gathered, the series should premiere on TF1 in a couple of months. While the series may never see the light of day in the United States, it has a chance. Its distributor, Cake Entertainment, was responsible for bringing “Skunk Fu!” to the U.S. as well as “Total Drama Island” and “Total Drama Action”. Even if it doesn’t make its way here, you can still check out the official website. It has a lot of information about the series on there, including a compact version of the show’s bible and even scripts and story outlines.
