DIC, Broderbund to Develop Animated Series

DIC Enterprises in Burbank, the largest supplier of children's animated television programming, agreed to develop an animated series with Broderbund Software of San Rafael based on Broderbund's series of Carmen Sandiego detective-chase computer games.

Nearly 2 million Carmen Sandiego games have been sold since they were introduced in 1985, the companies said. The games aim to teach geography and history to children through their chase of Carmen around the world and through time.

DIC said it will try to sell the new series to a network or in the afternoon syndication market to make its debut in the fall of 1991.
