Nick at Nite has green-lit GLENN MARTIN DDS., the first television series from Michael Eisner's Tornante Animation, cuing production on 20 episodes of the original, stop-motion primetime program.
Giving the American family a whole new look, the "trailblazing" series buckles up with the Martins in their toothbrush-topped dental mobile as they leave suburbia behind in the rear-view mirror and embark on a cross-country adventure. Eisner and the newly formed division of The Tornante Company -- Tornante Animation, have enlisted Eric Fogel -- the creative force behind MTV's CELEBRITY DEATHMATCH -- to help design the series.
Nick At Nite is Nickelodeon's nighttime programming block that also features popular hit family comedies including the Emmy Award-winning series HOME IMPROVEMENT, GEORGE LOPEZ, and FAMILY MATTERS, as well as THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL AIR and ROSEANNE. Also coming in 2009 is the hit comedy EVERYBODY HATES CHRIS, from co-creator and narrator Chris Rock and inspired by his real-life childhood experiences.
