Annapurna TV has begun development of a new adult-targeted CG-animated “Amberville” series for Amazon Prime Video.
Created by Chris McCoy and “Sausage Party” producer Conrad Vernon, and based on Tim Davys’ “Mollisan Town” book series, the darkly comedic animated crime show is set in a city populated by living, breathing stuffed animals.
The story concerns a reformed Teddy Bear who is pulled back into the criminal underworld when his former boss enlists him for an impossible new job.
McCoy wrote the pilot with a story by McCoy and Vernon with the latter attached to direct the pilot. McCoy, Vernon, Megan Ellison, Sue Naegle and David Distenfeld will serve as executive producers.
