Documentary duo eyes ‘SpongeBob’

Creadon, O’Malley sets sights on toon series

PARK CITY, Utah — The duo behind the docs “Wordplay” and “I.O.U.S.A.” are tackling a lighter topic: SpongeBob SquarePants.

Patrick Creadon and Christine O’Malley will write, direct and produce a one-hour doc about Nickelodeon’s hit toon series as it marks 10 years on the air.

The spec will be shown across various MTV Networks platforms in July.

“SpongeBob” has been the top-rated animated program among kids 2-11 for more than seven straight years. The show is seen in 171 markets in 25 languages, and it’s the most widely distributed property in the history of MTV Networks.

Nick execs made the first official trip to Sundance in the net’s 30-year history to announce the doc. They also staged a cast reading in Park City on Sunday with the show’s voice talent.
