Reboot Is Coming Back – and The Weinstein Company is making it possible.


With an ITV acquisition offer already on the table, The Weinstein Company Television is broadening beyond live-action scripted and reality fare. TWC TV is making an aggressive move into family-themed animated programming. TWC is coming to market with an animated series based on Spy Kids, Robert Rodriguez’s hit live-action features released by Dimension. TWC also has acquired rights to Gnomes, the 1980s animated property that included a Miramax film that Harvey Weinstein produced in 1987, and a live-action/CG-animated series based on the original IPReboot: The Guardian Code, a Power Rangers-esque show about a quartet of teens who enter cyberspace and become heroic figures who defend humanity from computer viruses, malware and other bad concoctions.

TWC is fully deficit financing each of the series, which extend from its long track record of making and releasing animated films fromPaddington to other pics. The company is making Spy Kids and Reboot in partnership with Canadian animator Rainmaker, its partner on the 2013 film Escape From Planet Earth. TWC made a rich rights deal for Gnomes and is partnered with Spain-based animator and rights holder BRB. Harvey Weinstein is overseeing Gnomes, while Bob Weinstein is spearheading Spy Kids and Reboot.
