Platinum inks with toon Netcaster

AlwaysI.com deal includes three Webisodes

Platinum Studios has inked a production, development and distribution deal with Netcaster AlwaysI.com in an attempt to find the next comic to fast track.

Under the agreement, Platinum Studios has a first-look option on AlwaysI’s independent properties for development into feature films and television programs, as well as for licensing and merchandising opportunities.

“AlwaysI has helped to fuel the demand for animation by offering animators a community to post their work,” said Platinum’s chairman and CEO Scott Mitchell Rosenburg, the former Malibu Comics topper who developed “Men In Black” for Columbia Pictures and Amblin Entertainment. “We’re pleased to support AlwaysI by using its online library as a resource for discovering new content and talent.”

Bowing in fall

Platinum, which recently announced an overall production deal with Miramax/Dimension, will bow in the fall PlatinumStudios.com, the official site for its library of 1,000 comic-book characters. Platinum has committed to working with AlwaysI on the development and production of at least three Webisodes, which will air on both sites.

Platinum is developing several comic-based projects for planned-theatrical release next year or in 2002, including “Dead of the Night” for Dimension Films and “Million Dollar Heroes” in association with New Line Cinema production prexy Michael De Luca.
