Annapurna TV is developing a new adult-targeted, CG-animated series titled Amberville at Amazon Studios for Amazon Prime Video.
Created by Chris McCoy and Conrad Vernon, the dark comedy series is based on the Mollisan Town book series by Tim Davys. It was published by HarperCollins.
Amberville\is set in a city populated by living, breathing stuffed animals including a reformed Teddy Bear who is pulled back into the criminal underworld when his former boss recruits him for an impossible new job.
The pilot of the series was written by McCoy and Vernon with him also serving as director. Annapurna’s Megan Ellison, Sue Naegle and David Distenfeld will be the executive producers along with the creators.
Earlier, Vernon had worked with Annapurna on the R-rated adult animated movie Sausage Part which he co-directed with Greg Tiernan. He had also helmed the more family-friendly films like Madagascar 3, Monsters vs. Aliens and Shrek 2.
