This is the first time IMCINE supports the development of a TV series with this program. The open call was released in November 2016 and received 143 projects in total. The selection committee in the animation category was composed by Álvaro Ceppi (Zumbástico Fantástico), Jorge R. Gutiérrez (The Book of Life, Mucha Lucha), and Nicolás Matji (Strings, Tadeo Jones). The ~$20,000 USD grant from IMCINE will allow Gasolina Studios to produce a short teaser, that will become an important tool to showcase the series in international markets.
