Coolabi and Walker Productions have entered into a major new co-development deal for Walker Books’ comedy book series Scream Street. Development will begin this year, and production will start next year.
Walker Productions and Coolabi have jointly secured the TV, gaming and licensing rights from author Tommy Donbavand, and will develop the books as an animated TV series for children 7-10.
The Scream Street books have so far sold into China, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Portugal, Russia and Sweden.
“Scream Street is a truly individual book series that we know will translate into a fantastic animated show for TV,” says Michael Dee, director of content at Coolabi. “We’re excited to be starting this new partnership with Walker Productions and bringing to life the books for existing fans and new audiences.”
