September 27, 2018

Canadian indie Headspinner Productions and showrunner/producer Diana Moore have partnered to develop a 2D-animated series around YouTube star Denis Kopotun (formerly known as Denis Daily).

Aimed at six- to nine-year-olds, Denis and Me will revolve around the world of Denis (who is featured in the show as an eight-year-old) and his cat sidekick Sir Meows A Lot. Moore (Ollie the Boy Who Became What He Ate, Stella and Sam) and Headspinner’s Michelle Melanson are developing the project with Kopotun, who has more than six million subscribers and two billion views on his YouTube channel.

Headspinner launched earlier this year after Melanson stepped down as president of Boat Rocker’s Radical Sheep studio and teamed up with The Stanley Dynamic co-creator and showrunner Ken Cuperus. Since then, the company has announced it’s working on a rebooted version of Canadian kids sketch comedy classic The Hilarious House of Frightenstein.
