DreamWorks Moves Forward with Big TV Animation Plans

DreamWorks Animation announced yesterday the hire of veteran Nickelodeon exec Marjorie Cohn to serve as head of television at DreamWorks Animation. Cohn left Nick last April after 26 years with the network. She joins two other former Nick TV execs at DreamWorks: the well-liked Mark Taylor, who ran Nickelodeon Animation Studio and is currently head of TV production at DreamWorks, and Peter Gal, who is heading up development.

Sources tell Cartoon Brew that DreamWorks is ramping up in a big way. They are setting up a new studio in Glendale where they plan numerous new series based on their original films as well as shows based on classic properties they acquired in the Classic Media buyout (now known as DreamWorks Classics). Among the classic properties owned by DreamWorks are Casper the Friendly Ghost, Where’s Waldo, Lassie, The Lone Ranger, Postman Pat, George of the Jungle, Rocky & Bullwinkle, and (personal fave) Roger Ramjet.

DreamWorks is aggressively recruiting showrunners and artistic talent from other studios. If they move forward with their current plan, which is to produce a massive 1,200 new episodes of content over five years, they will need to hire hundreds of crew, and they will almost instantly become one of LA’s largest corporate-run TV studios, on a par with Cartoon Network, Disney and Nick.

The '80s series had its charms.



I'm not sure the CG series will work out so well, given that the characters will have trouble attending school like they did in the '80s run.

Sony Will Release R-Rated Animated Film “Sausage Party”

American feature animation just got a little more adult. Sony Pictures will release its first R-rated animated in 2015. The CG pic, Sausage Party, is being written by actor Seth Rogen, along with Evan Goldberg, Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir. This will become the first wide-release R-rated US animated feature since the 2007 movie based on Adult Swim’s Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

Sausage Party will be helmed by Conrad Vernon, the co-director of Shrek 2, Madagascar 3 and Monsters vs Aliens, and Greg Tiernan, the director of the TV series Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends. Nitrogen Studios Canada in Vancouver will handle the animation production.

The film, which is being described by its producers as “raunchy,” will star a sausage on a quest to discover the truth about his existence:

After falling out of a shopping cart, the hero sausage and his new friends embark on a journey through the supermarket to get back to their aisles before the 4th of July sale.

Not a cartoon but related...

Roger Rabbit Returns In “Who Wacked Roger Rabbit?”

Roger Rabbit is back! The character, which began its life in an adult-oriented novel written by Gary K. Wolf, will return in a new novel titled Who Wacked Roger Rabbit? It will be released exclusively as an e-book on November 29 by Musa Publishing.

Hard-boiled gumshoe Eddie Valiant lands a plum job as Gary Cooper’s bodyguard while Coop scouts locations for his next movie—a screwball comedy titled Hi, Toon! But Eddie’s dream job quickly turns into a nightmare. The film’s being shot in Toontown, and Coop’s co-star turns out to be none other than Roger Rabbit. Eddie’s a big fan of Coop. Of Roger? Not so much.

A sinister hoodlum threatens to murder Coop if the movie gets made. Before long, Eddie, Coop, Roger, and the ever-glamorous Jessica Rabbit are embroiled in a mystery that could destroy Toontown. When Roger bites off more Toonish trouble than Eddie can swallow, the answer to the question Who Wacked Roger Rabbit? swiftly becomes no laughing matter.
