9 Story to Produce Little Critter Series


9 Story Media Group has signed a deal with Little Critter, LLC to make a new animated series based on Mercer Mayer’s Little Critters children’s books. The media company will also handle merchandising rights and worldwide distribution for the Little Critter Series, with the exeption of digital media and publishing content, which remains with Little Critter, LLC.

The agreement was settled by Stuart Snyder (former President and CEO of Turner’s animation and kid’s media division). Snyder Media Group LLC has been Little Critter to develop the brand worldwide and assess strategic partners and opportunities. Little Critter, LLC is lead by long-time creative director, producer and writer John R. Sansevere, with partners Sword, Rowe & Company and real estate developer Richard Dreher.

The intended series will features various casts of animal characters living in Citterville, with a focus on challenges and neighborhood adventures of growning up, and a story promoting social-emotional learning. The franchise of author-illustrator Mayer’s Little Critter has sold more than 200 million books all over the world in the past 40 years, with translations in eight languages. The books have also found success in Asia with more than 100 titles released in China in 2016.
