DHX Media has announced commissions for a pair of new series─2D-animated Chuck’s Choice and CGI preschool series Space Ranger Roger (pictured)–as well as a second season of Inspector Gadget.
Space Ranger Roger (13 x half hours), created by Jeff Rosen (Animal Mechanicals, Bo On the GO), has been commissioned by DHX-owned Family Jr. in Canada. The preschool series about an alien hero who travels to earth to help people in need is being produced at DHX’s studio in Halifax.
At the same studio, season two of Inspector Gadget (26 x half hours) is also underway. This time, we find Gadget, his niece Penny and their dog Brian continuing to battle Dr. Claw and his nephew Talon. The second season of the rebooted series was commissioned in Canada by Teletoon. The first season of the show was previously picked up by Turner Broadcasting for its Boomerang channels across EMEA, Latin America and Asia Pacific.
Chuck’s Choice (40 x 11 minutes), directed by Rob Boutilier (Kid vs. Kat), has been greenlit in Canada by YTV, as well as licensed to Turner Broadcasting France. The show is currently in production at DHX’s Vancouver studio and tells the story of 10-year-old Chuck McFarlane, who owns a device that allows him to choose his next adventure.
