Kuala Lumpur -- GempakStarz is working with Blackbone Entertainment to create a 3D animated series based on the famous character based comic "Jinggo".

This new masterpiece was created by Kenny Chua who won the Malaysia Best Comic Award in 2001 and is transformed into an animation series.

Jinggo animated series is re-written by Dean Wilkinson, a renowned international writer for Comedy TV, Radio, Computer Games and books. Wilkinson gives Jinggo an edgy angle with its sci-fi outlook that will surely attract every young age and its existing comic fan base.

The story is about Jinggo and his crew are bounty hunters who are always looking for that ‘big contract’ to set them up for life.

And because they have bizarre and unorthodox methods, they always seem to get the weirdest of jobs – the one that the other bounty hunters wouldn't have a clue how to even begin to tackle.

From aliens bullying cattle, to mermaids in distress, Jinggo and co are always offered a ‘handsome reward’ for their troubles, but more often than something goes wrong and the reward is ‘less than pretty’.

Jinggo is promised to entertain the whole family comedy with its action and adventure-filled series. With many different types of characters and scenes in this animated series, Jinggo is predicted to spring out the adventurer's spirit in every kid.
