FremantleMedia Enterprises has inked a development deal to co-produce and distribute two new shows, both based on original Random House stories.
The co-development will take place with Random House Children's Screen Entertainment, which is a joint venture between Random House Children's Books and Komixx Entertainment.
FME will also take on worldwide distribution, licensing and home entertainment rights for the two shows - Fish Head Steve and The Amazing Adventures of Charlie Small.
The initial focus for both properties will be for television broadcast, with scope to develop into additional areas including games and toys.
"These two shows promise to entertain kids and families in countries around the world," said Sander Schwartz, EVP and head of FME's Children's and Family Entertainment division. "Both series will feature compelling characters, great original storylines and themes from the books and stunning visuals. We're delighted to be working with RHCSE on these projects."
