Animated Children’s Series a First for Technicolor

Technicolor will produce an animated children’s series based on a new work by Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial Berkeley Breathed. The series “Pete & Pickles” will be the first ever created by the company, which for decades has played a behind-the-scenes role with post-production and distribution for the entertainment industry. Animation industry veterans Jean MacCurdy and Fonda Snyder will lead the development and production of the series along with Steven Wendland, vice president of digital productions for Technicolor, which has offices in Burbank. MacCurdy and Snyder are recognized stars in children’s animated content and share Technicolor’s vision for developing world-class programming and fully utilizing our talented team at Paprikaas, an animation studio based in India, said Tim Sarnoff, president of Technicolor’s Digital Productions division. Thomson S.A., the parent company of Technicolor, is a majority shareholder in Paprikaas. MacCurdy was the former president of Warner Bros. Animation, and Snyder was the co-founder and former president of Storyopolis Productions and former vice president of original movies with Disney Channel. Mark R. Madler
