D’Works goes to ‘Dogs’ with Breathed

Picture book, novel to be adapted for bigscreen

DreamWorks Animation will adapt picture book and novel “Flawed Dogs,” by cartoonist Berkeley Breathed, for the bigscreen.

Story centers around a dachshund who must reclaim his place in the family after being wrongly exiled by a jealous show dog.

Breathed, who will exec produce the project, is best known for creating “Bloom County,” the 1980s comicstrip featuring Opus the Penguin.

DreamWorks Animation head of development Alex Schwartz and development exec Damon Ross will oversee the project.

“All my stories are sparked by a nugget of truth hiding in plain sight,” Berkeley said in a statement. “In this case, it’s that all animals dream… but only dogs dream of us.”
