Varga animating Blues
The WB networks prime-time animated sitcom, Baby Blues, will be produced at the Hungary-based Varga Studio. Varga has been contracted to animate the pilot episode (which they recently finished), as well as an additional seven episodes of the shows thirteen episode first season order. It should be noted that Warner Bros. is still handling the pre- and post-production on these first eight episodes while Rough Draft is picking up the remaining five episodes. The show, which is based on the comic of the same name created by Jerry Scott and Rick Kirkman, is about coping with the everyday problems that face first-time parents. Varga has previously collaborated with Warner Bros. Television on an Emmy Award-winning Animaniacs special. The creative team for Blues includes animation director Alexei Alexeiev, writers/producers Peter Ocko and Jeff Martin and creative producer Liz Holzman.
