“H.R. Pufnstuf” and “Land of the Lost” creators Sid and Marty Krofft have signed a development deal with Amazon Studios. Said deal includes the creation of a pilot for a reimagined version of the 1970s children’s live action series “Sigmund and the Sea Monsters”.
The original show centered on two brothers who discover Sigmund, a friendly young sea monster who had been thrown out by his comically dysfunctional undersea family for refusing to frighten people. The boys hide Sigmund in their clubhouse.
Amazon Studios vp Roy Price says: “Sid and Marty are geniuses and we are honored to be working with them to bring to the world a return of what we believe is TV’s most fabulous and funniest sea creature ever.”
Marty Krofft says: “Sid found Sigmund swimming in the ocean as seaweed. Boy, are we lucky to re-create Sigmund and the Sea Monsters with Roy Price and Tara Sorensen at Amazon Studios.”
Twenty-nine episodes of the original series were created and ran from 1973-1975.
