Kids' WB! announced on Thursday that the new Spider-Man anminated series, produced by Culver Entertaiment, will be on the network in early 2008.

Tentatively titled The Amazing Spider-Man, the new series' crew includes supervising producer Greg Weisman and producer/superivising director Victor Cook.

"The addition of Spider-Man bolsters a lineup that has proved to be the Saturday morning destination for kids seeking action and adventure in the most amped-up ways," said Betsy McGowen, Kids' WB! senior vice-president and generagal manager. "We're ecstatic to welcome Spider-Man to our popular cavalcade of super heroes.²

"Spider-Man is such an important brand for Sony Pictures and we're thrilled to keep the momentum going by taking it back to television with an animated series on Kids' WB!," said Zack Van Amburg, Sony Pictures Television co-president. "It's also an excellent way to launch Culver Entertainment, our newest television company."

Here's how the network decribes the show:

"Riding the crest of Sony's anticipated summer blockbuster Spider-Man 3, the new animated series picks up the original web-slinger¹s mythology at the beginning of his hero¹s journey -- as a not-so-typical 16-year-old entering his junior year of high school. Having spent the summer engaging common criminals with his new-found powers, Peter Parker must conceal his secret identity while engaging a new level of terror -- the multi-leveled pressures of teenage life at home and school while combating bigger, badder super-villains in the real world."

"Our goal is to reinterpret these great characters and concepts for our millennium," Weisman said. "We'll have plenty of resonant material for the Spider-Man fan, while engaging the Spider-Man novice with the same thrills we experienced when we were first exposed to the character. Our stories will appeal on multiple levels with plenty of eye-candy, action, humor and colorful characters for the youngest demographic balanced with extensive character development for 'tweens, teens and adults."

Awesome News!
