Sharkdog: Netflix orders new animated series
James R | On 10, Apr 2020
Netflix is bringing a new pet home with animated series Sharkdog.
The show, from Netflix and ViacomCBS International Studios (VIS), is created by Singaporean talent Jacinth Tan in partnership with Singaporean based CGI animation studio One Animation.
The 20-episode series, which comprises 7-minute episodes, follows 10 year old Max and his best friend Sharkdog – half shark, half dog, all appetite. Blissfully unaware of his own strength, stealth and general sharkiness, Sharkdog often leaves a trail of chaos in his wake. But, like all good half-dogs, he’s Max’s BFF and Max is his.
Sharkdog is VIS’ first internationally originated global animated series for Netflix. It is also the first animated series from Singapore to come out of Nickelodeon’s Global Animated Shorts Program, designed to identify and develop long form original comedy-driven content for kids globally.
It will premiere in 2021.
