Nelvana announces D.N.Ace
Canadian animation company Nelvana Enterprises has announced D.N.Ace, an all-new comedy-adventure that’ll mix science and fun. The series will be Executive Produced by Matthew Wexler, whose previous credits include Spin Master properties like Bakugan, Paw Patrol and Tenkai Knights.
The series follows curious, adventure-loving, mischief-making, proudly nerdy, 12-year-old Ace Ripley who suddenly learns he holds an incredible ability to manipulate DNA by fusing the genes of a living thing with any other thing, to create something entirely new. The hero-in-the-making uses his newfound power to create ridiculous, amazing, and even terrifying mash-ed up creatures, and tries to save his town from total chaos while trying to have the time of his life.
“We can’t wait to introduce this stand-out series with its distinctive mix of sci-fi, fact, laughter, and thrills to our viewers,” said Scott Dyer, President, Nelvana Enterprises. “Kids love to create and dream up the unimaginable, and the inventive possibilities of D.N.Ace and its mashup mayhem will resonate well with our audience.”
D.N.Ace will run on Teletoon in Canada and is aimed at children 6-9. The company has set forth on 80 11-minute episodes (aired as 40 22-minutes). The Japanese animation house behind Pokemon and Beyblade Burst, OLM, will represent the series alongside Dentsu in Japan. Both will also consult on the series.
