Nickelodeon has teamed up with broadcasters in France, Germany and Brazil to commission two more seasons of Alvinn!!! and the Chipmunks.
M6 in France, Super RTL in Germany and Gloob TV in Brazil have all committed to seasons three and four of the CGI- animated series, which will begin production this fall in France.
It will be coproduced between Bagdasarian Productions and Technicolor Animation Productions, which will share all writing, producing and directing responsibilities. ...
Since this is a non-Guild show, I don't know if pre-production (writing and storyboards) are being done stateside or not. I do know that various board artists allege that Bagdasarian has a habit of stiffing artists on payments for completed work.
No doubt these allegations are scurrilous and without foundation, but we get them nevertheless. And we pass them on to show people how some studios get smeared by ungrateful employees. Awful, just awful.
