Nelvana, Sony Pictures Animation Ready ‘Hotel Transylvania’ For TV

Hotel Transylvania,” the 2012 kid-focused film centered on a hotel for monsters and ghouls, is being prepared for a shot at TV. Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana is developing a new animated TV series based on the  feature film, from Sony Pictures Animation.

The animated monster comedy television series will be developed and produced by Nelvana Studio in Toronto, which is partnering with Sony Pictures Animation, and is slated to launch on air in early 2017.

“We’re excited to be entering into a new relationship with Sony Pictures Animation to extend the world of ‘Hotel Transylvania’ into a new TV series,” said Colin Bohm, vice president, and head of Corus Kids, in a statement. “The hilarious characters and clever premise of ‘Hotel Transylvania’ set the stage for endless story possibilities.”

Hotel Transylvania 2,” the theatrical sequel to Sony Pictures Animation’s comedy, is scheduled to be released in North America on September 25.

Distribution for the “Hotel Transylvania” TV series will be handled by Sony Pictures Television in the U.S., while Nelvana Enterprises will distribute the series outside of the U.S. Sony Pictures Animation reserves global licenses for toys, games and publishing. For all other categories, Sony Pictures Animation reserves U.S. rights, and Corus will hold international rights. Exec producing the series are Rick Mischel from Sony Pictures Animation and Colin Bohm and Irene Weibel from Nelvana.
