Philadelphia – Local comic book publisher, Zenescope Entertainment, is hoping to enter its flagship property into a new medium. GRIMM FAIRY TALES is Zenescope’s longest running and best selling title. Through a Kickstarter campaign, Zenescope is looking to raise enough capital to produce a pilot episode for a GFT animated series.
Launched in 2005, the GRIMM FAIRY TALES comic book series stars Sela Mathers as the custodian of a book of fairy tales with great power, which she utilizes to help people through difficult points in their lives. Now, Zenescope wants to extend GFT into the world of animation. The company has partnered with Titmouse, Inc. to be the project’s animation studio and Jon Schnepp will direct the pilot episode. They have extensive experience with The Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim animation block.
Zenescope has also announced some notable voiceover talent for the potential new animated series. “Game of Thrones” star, Lena Headey, has signed on to voice Sela Mathers. Actress Briana Evigan (“Step Up 2: The Streets,” “Sorority Row”) will also be lending her voice to the show.
Of course, all this is contingent on Zenescope meeting their crowd funding goal of $175,000. They are offering contributors some great rewards, such as digital, DVD and Blu-Ray copies of the show, exclusive comics and art prints, Special Thanks in the credits and more.
At the time of this writing, Zenescope has received pledges totaling $63,178 with 18 days left in the campaign. To contribute to the campaign, follow this link.
