Fox Family Channel has committed to “Committed,” a new half-hour primetime animated series from Nelvana.
Skein is based on cartoonist Michael Fry’s United Feature Syndicate comic strip. The family-friendly cabler plans to premiere the 13-episode series in mid-2000.
“Committed” focuses on a family with a working mom who has three children and a stay-at-home writer husband. ” ‘Committed’ brings to the network a unique take on family life,” said Rob Sorcher, executive VP, programming and development for Fox Family Channel. “Creator-driven primetime animation is a great way to bring contemporary and distinctive programming to our (network).”
Fry’s comic strip appears in more than 110 newspapers worldwide, including the Los Angeles Times and the Chicago Sun-Times.
