Warner Bros. Television will announce its fall schedule this week and it will include claymation series THE PJS. The Hollywood Reporter published the news saying that the official announcement will go before advertisers in New York on Tuesday, May 16. Earlier this year, WB had signed a deal with THE PJS producer Imagine TV/Touchstone that gave the network the option of picking up the show for the fall 2000 season. Previously airing on Fox, THE PJS future was uncertain even as late as last week. Prior reports were skeptical whether the WB would want to take on the hefty price tag per episode for the stop-motion series. As part of the new pact, WB will help oversee the production of the toon with Imagine and Will Vinton Studios.
