Toronto, Canada —Wizard Hat Productions is developing a new animated comedy series, Wiley & Grampa’s Creature Features, based on the popular books by Kirk Scroggs. Aimed at boys aged 6-11, the 11 minute episodes are chock full of werewolves, prehistoric predators, mutated giant fish and alien hairdressers.
“Kirk Scroggs’ stories about Wiley and his Grampa have been entertaining readers throughout North America for the last five years,” said Pamela Slavin, Executive Producer, Wizard Hat Productions. “We are looking forward to bringing their hilarious adventures to a global television audience.”
Wiley & Grampa’s Creature Features are the almost-true cartoon stories of 10-year-old Wiley and his Grampa, who save the townspeople of Gingham County from supernatural creatures, monsters and terrible cafeteria food. Wiley is a master zombie fighter and dangerous amateur chemist, who along with his Grampa, his best friend Jubal and his cat Merle, live as normal a life as you can when your town is perched on a toxic lake full of sea monsters, and is the epicenter of all things creepy and deep fried. Life is never dull in Gingham County when Colonel Dracula’s Monster Truck Spectacular rolls into town, or Grampa’s annual BBQ attracts a pack of hungry Zombies, or Vera the lunch lady unleashes a Toxic Terror from the back of the fridge.
