Web-Slinger to Star in New Animated TV Series

Spider-Man swings into the Saturday morning lineup in early 2008 with a new animated series tentatively titled “Spectacular Spider-Man,” from Sony Pictures Television on Kids’ WB! on the CW Network. The series focuses on Peter Parker, a not-so-typical 16-year-old entering his junior year of high school.  Parker must conceal his secret identity, confront the multi-leveled pressures of teenage life at home and school, and combat even bigger super-villains than ever before. Spider-Man Merchandising L.P., the limited partnership between Sony Pictures Consumer Products Inc. and Marvel Entertainment, Inc., will launch a licensing and merchandising initiative.
