GLENN BECK's online GBTV network is developing an animated comedy series with production company ICEBOX. The parties are "currently discussing various ideas for an animated comedy series and will select one to jointly develop," according to a press release from GBTV. ICEBOX was co-founded by TV writers JON COLLIER ("THE SIMPSONS," "KING OF THE HILL") and HOWARD GORDON ("24," "HOMELAND") and others.
JOEL CHEATWOOD, President of Programming at GBTV, said, "The team at ICEBOX has developed and produced shows for some of the most renowned and acclaimed networks on television and we are excited that GBTV will be home to one of their next projects. We look forward to working with HOWARD, TAL and JON on bringing an entertaining animated show to GBTV."
TAL VIGDERSON, Managing Director of ICEBOX, added, "ICEBOX is known for edgy, irreverent programming. Many of our writers welcome the opportunity to create shows the whole family can watch. This venture lets us take a little break from shocking and offending our audience."
