Kung Fu Panda Becomes A Series

Nickelodeon is planning a CG-animated comedy series based on last year’s hit “Kung Fu Panda” says Reuters.

Twenty six episodes of the series have been ordered, marking the second co-production with DreamWorks Animation. The aim is to achieve a success like their first collaboration, “The Penguins of Madagascar”, which premiered in March and is the second most popular program among kifs 6-11 behind only “Spongebob Squarepants”.

A 2010 air date is expected for the series.
