A TV show starring “the first modern family” is reportedly in the works.
Last week, during DreamWorks Animation’s first quarter earnings stockholder call, studio CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg announced that a TV series starring The Croods is in the works.
According to a report by The Croods fan blog, here’s the exchange from the call:
Michael Corty: With The Croods as now your sixth franchise...what changes would you anticipate in how you monetize this asset...given your recent emphasis on...licensing and...television opportunities?
Jeffrey Katzenberg: Well, I think like the franchises before it, that's -- one of the things that comes is there's lots of things for us to do with the IP outside of feature films and we actually have a number of those in the works. So I think you can anticipate there will be a TV show.
DreamWorks also reportedly filed a trademark application for the proposed Croods TV series in February.
