SEOUL, Aug. 28 (Yonhap) -- A South Korean animation studio said Thursday it will co-produce multiple television animation series with DreamWorks Studios, a leading motion picture company in Hollywood.

Studio Mir Co. has recently signed a contract with the American studio to collaborate on a number of animation projects, including a 78-episode TV animation series by 2018, Mir said.

Details of the deal were not immediately available. But sources say it would be the largest deal that a local animation company has ever signed with a foreign studio.

"We will start with the television series," said Kim Jae-yoon, who is in charge of co-production projects at Mir. "Discussions are under way on which series to make later," he added.

Studio Mir is best known for its production of the popular American TV animation series titled "The Legend of Korra."
