Toronto’s Portfolio Entertainment (The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That!) has secured a deal with Blue Dream Studios founder Scott Christian Sava to adapt his all-ages graphic novel, Pet Robots, into an animated TV series for six- to nine-year-olds. The agreement gives Portfolio worldwide distribution, licensing and merchandising rights to the comedy series.
Pet Robots tells the story of four students who wander off while on a field trip and accidentally activate a group of high-tech robots. The bots follow the kids home, and soon they must team up to save the world.
Sava recently wrote and directed 3D-animated feature film Animal Crackers, which will premiere this summer featuring the voice talents of John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, Ian McKellen, Danny DeVito and Sylvester Stallone.
