Vancouver-based animation company SecondSun Ent. Is teaming up with Western Canada-based independent production company Minds Eye Ent. to produce the animated series Creepshow. The project is in development with YTV and production is expected to start in the fall of 2003.
Based on the 1982 creature feature from horror legends George A. Romero and Stephen King the suspense thriller series will follow suit in paying homage to the classic E.C. Comics. But unlike the "R" rated movie, the shows twisted plots will be made suitable for the 12 17 target audience.
Series producer Chris Delaney (Christopher the Christmas Tree, The Littlest Angel, Nilus the Sandman) is developing the creative concept along with Ivan Cohen and Barney Cohen (Forever Night, Sabrina the Teenage Witch). The unique look and style was created by SecondSun designer John Delaney (Batman, Superman, Futurama), who fuses the anime style with a more typically North American design.
