My Phone Genie is a British children's comedy-drama series about a young girl with a genie in her mobile phone. The series premiered on 1 January 2012 and will run for 26 episodes, airing on CITV and ITV1.
Moonscoop, UK production house Talent Television and Telegael in Ireland have co-produced a brand new live action with special effects show 'My Phone Genie'. The 26 half hour episode series is commissioned by CiTV in association with ZDF/ZDF Enterprises.
Promising off-the-wall comedy capers and heightened reality, My Phone Genie is aimed at international audiences aged 12+. As well as a live action television series, the producers have developed the series as a multi-platform offering and plan to grow the brand via technology relevant to the target age group.
Remember the genie who used to live in a lamp in the old folk tale? He’s found a hi-tech modern home in a phone. All eleven year-old Jasmine Hart wanted was the free ringtone download advertised in an online advert, but instead she got landed with Gene in this new live action comedy.
