Atomic Cartoons is developing a CG animated series based on #1 New York Times best-selling children’s books, Princesses Wear Pants, by Today Show host Savannah Gutherie and Allison Oppenheim.
Atomic is thrilled to be partnering with Drew Barrymore’s production company, Flower Films, to bring the empowering book series to life in CG animation.
Creators Guthrie and Oppenheim will serve as executive producers alongside Atomic’s Jennifer McCarron and Matthew Berkowitz.
Development has begun on the series, which, like the books, will take the genre well beyond dazzling dresses and tiaras, empowering young girls by celebrating that you can be pink and sparkly while still being a strong woman and doer. Centered around the wide-ranging adventures of the courageous, thoughtful and go-getter Princess Penelope Pineapple and her friends, the series encourages children to be brave, ambitious, and unafraid to make a difference in the world!
The news comes as the book series’ second installment, Princesses Save The World, hits shelves courtesy of Abrams Books.
Comedy/Adventure for children 3-7
