March 25, 2009, 11:36 AM — The outrageously amusing animated FOX programs just got more accessible (and even more addictive). Airborne Mobile, a leading full-service mobile media company, today announced the renewal of its agreement with FOX Mobile Entertainment to develop and distribute mobile content based on the FOX series Family Guy, as well as a new agreement to develop and distribute content based on FOX’s American Dad and King of the Hill. With 15 Emmy nominations between the three programs and an ample supply of pop culture parodies, Airborne can now offer even more mobile content based on popular FOX franchises.
In 2004, Airborne Mobile first announced a full suite of official Family Guy mobile content and it became an instant success, gratifying millions of Family Guy fans across North America. Bestselling ringtones from a hot-headed Stewie and a feisty Quagmire proved to be some of the most successful mobile content in North America, and now, the sixth and most side-splitting season of Family Guy will be transformed into freakin’ sweet mobile wallpapers. Giggity giggity!
Airborne plans to repeat the Family Guy success story twice over with American Dad and King of the Hill. For CIA agent Stan Smith and his family in American Dad, saving the US is an everyday objective, with disastrous and hilarious results. Lawn tractors, a constant supply of beer and propane accessories define the terrifically Texan world of King of the Hill. With blush-worthy quotes and memorable characters, both of these FOX show families put the “fun” in dysfunctional.
“With animated brands, the opportunities for creating a whole new world of creative content are endless,” said Andy Nulman, President and CMO of Airborne Mobile. “We’re excited that FOX has chosen Airborne Mobile to continue and expand its mobile legacy. The fervent fans of Family Guy, American Dad and King of the Hill have high expectations, and we can’t wait to deliver.”
“We are pleased to work with Airborne Mobile to help expand the distribution of personalization content from some of Fox’s most popular properties,” said Andrew Stalbow, Senior Vice President of Content for Fox Mobile Entertainment. “Now, even more fans of Family Guy, American Dad and King of the Hill will be able to enjoy content from these terrific shows on their mobile phones.”
The initial product offering will roll out in April on all major North American carrier decks.
