Netflix and DreamWorks Animation Television are reteaming for a trio of new series over the coming years. The pair have partnered on a whole range of projects, from spin-offs and originals to reboots. Upcoming series include She-Ra and the Princesses of Power and the next instalment in Tales of Arcadia from Guillermo del Toro, as well as an animated Fast & the Furious series.
The latest slate from creators such as Tony Hale and Blues Clues’ Traci Paige Johnson was announced at a MIPJr. keynote by Margie Cohn, president of DreamWorks Animation Television. Here’s the line-up:
Archibald’s Next Big Thing (Release date: 2019)
Inspired by the critically acclaimed children’s book from Tony Hale, Tony Biaggne and Victor Huckabee, Archibald’s Next Big Thing follows the adventures of Archibald Strutter, a chicken who ‘yes-ands’ his way thru life. Though living in the moment often leads him astray, Archibald always finds his way back home. Executive produced by Tony Hale, Archibald’s Next Big Thing is a fresh comedy about the importance of being present and celebrating the journey, not just the destination.
Gabby’s Dollhouse (Release date: 2020)
Welcome to Gabby’s Dollhouse, the preschool show with a surprise inside! Created and executive produced by Traci Paige Johnson (Blue’s Clues, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood) and Jennifer Twomey (Blue’s Clues, Team Umizoomi), Gabby’s Dollhouse is a mixed media series that unboxes a surprise before jumping into a fantastical animated world full of adorable cat characters that live inside Gabby’s dollhouse. Any adventure can unfold when we play in Gabby’s Dollhouse!
Rhyme Time Town (Release date: 2020)
All aboard to DreamWorks Rhyme Time Town, where Daisy the Puppy and Cole the Kitten are ready to guide young children through a colorful and adventurous world filled with nursery rhymes and imaginative play.
