SPIDER-MAN, THE NEW ANIMATED SERIES (13x26), which originally aired on MTV, was produced in CG animation by Mainframe Entertainment in association with Sony Pictures Television. In this 2003 update of the hugely popular comic book superhero, college student Peter Parker (Harris) battles with a variety of super-villains as Spider-Man, while trying to find a way to balance his personal life, including his girlfriend Mary Jane (Lisa Loeb), his part-time job as a photographer at the Daily Bugle, and his editor (Keith Carradine) who is convinced Spider-Man is a criminal that must be brought to justice. Ian Ziering (BEVERLY HILLS, 90210) also stars as Peter's best friend and secret nemesis Harry Osborn.
