According to Variety, Nickelodeon has ordered episodes for 2 new show and ordered 3 pilots. The one getting the spotlight at the moment is PLANET SHEEN, a spin off of JIMMY NEUTRON, and finally allows the bumbling fanboy his own adventures in space. Steve Oedekerk will executive produce the new show along with Jim Hope and Keith Alcorn.
Also in the works is T.U.F.F PUPPY, the adventures of a none-too-bright dog forced to worth with a crime-fighting team. This show will be executive produced by Butch Hartman of THE FAIRLY ODDPARENTS fame.
Animation prexy Brown Johnson told Daily Variety: “Both of these shows are building on the bench strength for the animation studio. These guys (Steve and Butch) are two of our biggest hitmakers.”
For pilots Nick has 3 CG-animated series in the mix. First is the buddy comedy ROBOT AND MONSTER: BEST FRIENDS FOREVER; then YOU’RE A BAD MAN based off of Andy Stanton’s bestselling books; and THE FLEEPS about two musicians on a space tour with alien warlord.
