Toronto-based Wizard Hat Productions is going to turn the Grim Hill book series into a animated series.
The books by Linda DeMeulemeester will be turned into 26 half-hour CG-animated episodes targeted at tweens. From the press release: “Wizard Hat is thrilled to work with Lobster Press and Linda DeMeulemeester to bring these unique and exciting stories to television,” said Pam Slavin, Partner and Executive Producer, Wizard Hat Productions, Inc. “’Grim Hill’ has attracted legions of fans who have been asking for a TV show based on the popular books, and we’re looking forward to bringing the adventures of Cat, Sookie, Jasper and Clive to life on air.” The popular five-book series, first released by Lobster Press in 2007, has received numerous accolades including the Silver Birch Award, voted favorite book of 2008 by kids grades 3-8. The Grim Hill books pit typical teens against powerful, magical creatures in the town of Grim Hill. Each thrilling tale combines celtic myth and dark faerie lore with face-paced action and adventure, and scary moments are diffused with humor.
