SLR Productions to develop animated series Andy Roid
SLR Productions has announced the option and development of the bionic boy spy book series Andy Roid by bestselling author Felice Arena.
With the support of ABC ME and the Australian Children’s Television Foundation (ACTF), SLR Productions will develop the tween book franchise into a 26 x half hour animated television series.
Andy Roid will be the first development collaboration between SLR Productions and ABC ME.
Andy’s not a regular teen but he’s trying his best to act like one. His parents are top secret scientists for the Global Intelligence Agency (GIA) specializing in bio robotics and, after a life threatening accident they rebuild Andy using their latest technology and untested research giving him superhuman powers.
Now he’s half boy, half robot and is about to become recruited as the youngest ever GIA spy.
“SLR Productions is passionate about adapting book properties and with its dynamic mix of technology, spy and bionic awesomeness Andy Roid makes for a one-of-a-kind TV series,” said CEO and executive producer of SLR Productions, Suzanne Ryan.
“Felice has created an amazing world in his successful book series with its extremely appealing lead hero character Andy Roid who is half robot, half boy. We very much look forward to developing the stories and the character of Andy into an incredible series for 8 to 12 year olds with the fantastic support of ABC ME and the Australian Children’s Television Foundation.”
“I’m over the moon at the prospect of my bionic-boy hero Andy Roid springing off the page and on to the small screen,” said series author Arena.
