Canadian production and sales group Double Dutch International is shopping the animated movie from Awesometown Entertainment at AFM. Elliot: The Littlest Reindeer finds Santa Claus reindeer Blitzen announcing his retirement on Dec. 21, giving Elliot, a miniature horse, just three days during North Pole tryouts to fulfill his lifelong dream to earn a spot on the legendary Christmas sleigh ride.
The pic is the first from a deal between DDI And Awesometown to co-produce two to three animated features annually budgeted in the $10 million-$15 million range.
Bee, a former correspondent on The Daily Show With Jon Stewart, hosts her own TBS show, Full Frontal With Samantha Bee, and is repped by UTA, AGI Entertainment Media & Management, Parent Management and Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman, Newman, Warren, Richman, Rush & Kaller.
Short has extensive comedy credits that include Curb Your Enthusiasm, How I Met Your Mother and Mulaney, as well an Emmy-nominated run on legal drama Damages.
“We’ve added two extremely talented comedians, Samantha and Martin, who will surely bring some cheers to this fun-loving holiday movie,” DDI president and CEO Jason Moring said Thursday in a statement.
Elliot: The Littlest Reindeer is produced by Dan Krech and Lucas Lynette-Krech.
