Scholastic UK and Brown Bag Films are together developing a new children’s property, about a dog called Dylan and his friends, in both picture book and TV format.
The project is the first property to be developed as part of a first-look partnership agreement announced last year by the two companies.
Scholastic imprint Alison Green Books will publish two picture books – Dylan the Doctor and Dylan the Shopkeeper – in August 2016 and January 2017 respectively, with more titles to follow in late 2017 and 2018. The series was created by Guy Parker-Rees, who is represented by Hilary Delamere at the Agency.
Scholastic, which has world rights, will work alongside Brown Bag Films, which is developing a Dylan animation.
