Nickelodeon announced Tuesday that James Corden and producing partner Ben Winston will develop an animated movie and TV series for the network based on the children’s book “Real Pigeons Fight Crime.”
The movie and TV series are being developed to air on all Nickelodeon platforms.
“`Real Pigeons Fight Crime’ is about a secret squad of crime-fighting pigeons, with high stakes and true hilarity, making it a perfect fit for our audience,” said Ramsey Naito, executive vice president, Nickelodeon Animation Production and Development. “By fusing the humor and expertise of this the incredible team at Fulwell 73 Productions, we are ready to show kids what pigeons really do — fight crime, solve mysteries, take down bad guys and keep neighborhoods safe!”
Written by Melbourne-based children’s author Andrew McDonald and illustrated by Ben Wood, the book was first published in Australia and is now available in more than 10 territories, including North America, where it was recently released by Random House Children’s Books.
The TV series will be executive produced by Corden and Winston, with McDonald and Wood serving as consultants throughout development and production.
