Coolabi and Walker Books have signed a deal which will the pair develop a TV version of Scream Street – a ‘quirky comedy book series’.
Scream Street will cater seven to ten year-old boys and girls market and the author, Tommy Donbavand, will be involved in the production.
Walker Productions and Coolabi have also secured gaming and licensing rights from the Donbavand.
Scream Street follows the story of Luke Watson: school boy and reluctant werewolf. When the Government Housing of Unusual Lifeforms (G.H.O.U.L.) gets wind of Luke’s hairy habit, they transfer him and his parents to Scream Street – a spooky place inhabited by zombies, ghosts, vampires and witches.
Helen McAleer, MD of Walker Productions, said: “Tommy Donbavand’s ghoulishly brilliant books have attracted a loyal following of fans, and we’re very excited to be able to work with Coolabi on creating the TV series and introducing a truly original cast of creepy characters to even more children.”
Walker Productions’ previous work includes Tilly and Friends for the BBC and Fleabag Monkeyface for ITV.
