After bringing to life characters such as Spider-Man and The Incredible Hulk, comic-book legend Stan Lee will focus his attentions on current jailbird heiress Paris Hilton. The New York Daily News has the scoop today that Lee will be developing an animated series featuring the celebutant for MTV. Insiders are already comparing the proposed toon to Stripperella, the Spike TV toon Lee created for Pamela Anderson in 2003.

On Wednesday night, she was transferred back to the women’s jail in Lynwood where she started her sentence for violating her DUI-driving probation terms.

The series focuses on a teenage boy and his life in a typical U.S. high school’but some of the animated characters will be based on actual MTV viewers. Santos says he wants to develop more time creating and focusing on a select number of shows. ‘I basically want to do a page on rewrite instead of rewriting off the old script,’ he told the trade daily.
