Annapurna TV is developing a new adult CG-animated Amberville series at Amazon Studios for Amazon Prime Video. Created by Chris McCoy and Sausage Party’s Conrad Vernon, Amberville is based on Tim Davys’ “Mollisan Town” book series, published by HarperCollins.

Amberville is a darkly comedic animated crime show set in a city populated by living, breathing stuffed animals. The story concerns a reformed Teddy Bear who is pulled back into the criminal underworld when his former boss enlists him for an impossible new job.

McCoy wrote the pilot with a story by McCoy and Vernon. Vernon is attached to direct the pilot. Annapurna’s Megan Ellison, Sue Naegle and David Distenfeld will serve as Executive Producers on the project alongside McCoy and Vernon.

The project reunites Vernon with Annapurna, who produced his film Sausage Party, which Sony Pictures released this past August. The raunchy, R-rated film, which Vernon co-directed alongside Greg Tiernan, has earned over $140 million worldwide. Vernon also directed the animated films Madagascar 3, Monsters vs Aliens and Shrek 2. Previously, McCoy wrote and directed 2016’s Good Kids, has authored two novels, ”The Prom-Goer’s Interstellar Excursion” and “Scurvy Goonda,” both from Knopf, and has had three scripts on The Black List (Get Back, Good Looking and Good Kids).

Amberville continues the expansion of Annapurna TV’s slate under new President of Television Naegle.

Amazon Original Series are available exclusively on Amazon Prime Video for members to watch via the Prime Video app for popular smart TVs, Fire TV, Fire Tablets and Android and iOS phones and tablets.
