Scholastic Entertainment, the media division of Scholastic, is joining forces with Sony Pictures Television and Neal H. Moritz’s Original Film to develop a new live-action “Goosebumps” series based on the best-selling books by R. L. Stine, published by Scholastic. Executive producers include Scholastic Entertainment president and chief strategy officer Iole Lucchese and senior vice president and general manager Caitlin Friedman, as well as Original Film’s Neal H. Moritz and Original’s head of television Pavun Shetty.
“‘Goosebumps’ has been keeping kids and families on the edge of their seats for nearly 30 years, and we’re very excited to partner with Sony Pictures Television and Neal H. Moritz to bring the enduring brand to life in a fresh new way for today’s generation,” says Iole Lucchese, president and chief strategy officer, Scholastic Entertainment. “From the world-famous book series to a full-scale licensing program and even live-action movies starring Jack Black, ‘Goosebumps’ remains wildly popular, and we look forward to presenting new adventures to give fans even more ‘Goosebumps.’”
Further supporting the upcoming “Goosebumps” series is a wealth of content currently available to fans in the U.S. and beyond. Scholastic’s Home Base – a free web and app experience built to be a fun and safe digital community for kids – features a “Goosebumps” area, where players can chat with the character Slappy, play games and read and listen to excerpts from the books. In addition, the TV series is accessible to viewers on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube, iTunes, Google Play and Vudu.
“I loved making the ‘Goosebumps’ movies and can’t wait to bring even more of R. L. Stine’s incredible stories to life through a high-end television series that speaks to both adults and kids alike,” says Neal H. Moritz.
