Monsters vs. Aliens Headed for the Tube


Nickelodeon has ordered a pilot from DreamWorks Animation for a series based on the company’s recent Monsters vs. Aliens, says The Hollywood Reporter.

DWA and Nick last week announced a deal on the co-production of “Kung Fu Panda: The Series” based on last year’s DWA hit. The two also collaborate on the successful “The Penguins of Madagascar,” for which the partners will launch an aggressive licensing campaign early next year.

In 2010, DWA is also teaming up with NBC for a “Scared Shrekless” Halloween special and a Kung Fu Panda holiday special.
