'Phineas and Ferb' Duo Developing Feature Film, Possible Spinoff
Dan Povenmire and Jeff Marsh ink multiyear deals that include an additional season of the animated series as well as a new pilot.
Disney Channel’s Phineas and Ferb are heading to the big screen.
Dan Povenmire and Jeff Marsh, the co-creators of the animated hit, have each inked multiyear deals with Disney Television Animation for another season as well as to develop a feature film.
Under the pact, the duo who also serve as executive producers on the series will develop a pilot for Disney Channel, which likely would be a spinoff of the comedy.
The deal comes three weeks after Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension became cable’s top movie of the year in total viewers, drawing 7.6 million viewers on Aug. 5, topping all broadcast networks in the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demographic.
