FOX Entertainment’s Emmy Award-winning animation studio Bento Box Entertainment and Dublin-based animation studio Boulder Media have entered into a multi-year production services agreement, jointly announced by Brett Coker, Chief Operating Officer and Partner of Bento Box, and Paul O’Flanagan, Creative Director of Boulder Media.
Boulder Media will provide production services to numerous primetime animated series housed under the Bento Box banner, including FOX’s upcoming comedies Krapopolis, from creator Dan Harmon and executive produced by and starring Jon Hamm. Boulder Media will also support the production of third-party series and specials produced by Bento Box. In addition to the work with Bento Box, Boulder will continue to work with various other studios, with Chatrone representing them in that arena.
“This strategic relationship and shared access between Boulder Media and Bento Box ensures our scope and reach to local artists and creators is truly global as the value of premium animation continues to rise,” said Coker.
Bento Box’s Head of Production, Dana Cameron, spearheads the deal.
“Ireland boasts some of the strongest animation talent in the world,” said Cameron. “It’s a deep well of creatives we were fortunate to tap into on The Bob’s Burgers Movie, and since then, we’ve been looking for ways to re-apply Dublin’s creative community to our growing slate of programming.”
“We are delighted to be partnering with Bento Box in bringing their substantial slate of shows to life via this multi-year, multi-project output deal,” added O’Flanagan. “We are excited to be producing more content in the adult genre, now for primetime broadcast, and to be working with the best creative talent in this field. This is an exciting new chapter for Boulder and the Irish animation industry, and we couldn’t ask for a better partner than the team at Bento Box.”
