Random House Children’s Screen Entertainment has secured options for four projects based on RHCB books and characters.

Fish-Head Steve is a cartoon comic strip, which was first published in the DFC and will now be developed for TV animation. The firm will be presenting the show at Cartoon Forum in September this year and is currently developing scripts and a pilot animation.

Gargoylz will be developed into live action CGI for TV. The series will be aimed at six year olds, while a special book will be created for World Book Day in March 2011.
Moving on, and Princess Poppy will be developed for TV. The picture books have sales of over two million copies to date. Finally, the Charlie Small series will become live action CGI for film or TV. The series followed the adventures of an eight year-old boy who has lived for over 400 years as he tries to get back home.

"The quality and variety of short-listed books from Random House provides us with a unique advantage at a time when many broadcasters are focused on finding global properties," said Andrew Cole-Bulgin, partner and head of film & TV at RHCSE.

"We can deliver not only global brands but material with an established commercial audience."
