Sony Pictures has tapped Canadian cartoon producer Nelvana to produce an animated TV show based on the Sony Animation hit film. The small-screen adaptation will focus on the teenage years of Dracula’s daughter, Mavis, and her friends.
An early 2017 TV airdate is planned.
“Audiences have embraced the world and characters of Hotel Transylvania, so we are thrilled to be partnering with Nelvana to take them on new adventures, expanding on the teenage years of Mavis and her friends at the world-famous monster five-star resort!” Kristine Belson, Sony Pictures Animation president, said Tuesday in a statement.
Rick Mischel of Sony Pictures Animation will executive produce along with Colin Bohm and Irene Weibel for Nelvana. News of the TV adaptation comes ahead of the sequel Hotel Transylvania 2 hitting theaters on Sept. 25.
The Hotel Transylvania TV series will be distributed by Sony Pictures TV in the U.S., and Nelvana Enterprises will handle sales for the rest of the world.
