A co-production with Spain’s Apolo Films, “Dogtanian” is an iconic television property that was first aired on Mbs in Japan in 1981, Television Espanola in 1982 and the BBC in 1985. There have been several iterations of the show since, and some 40 years on, it is still airing in more than 100 territories.
Emmy and Annie nominee Doug Langdale (“Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness”) is writing the film script, based on the original written by Claudio Biern Boyd, who is President of Apolo Films. Toni Garcia (“Invizimals”) is set to direct.
Universal has boarded the project, taking Svod for several territories including the U.K., France and Germany. Spanish partners on the project include Tve, Lusomundo and A Contracorriente, with financial support from Ico,
