Spidey Renewal

The webbed crusader gets a new order:

[Disney XD] has renewed animated hit Ultimate Spider-Man for a second season ...

The series, which was used to launch the network's Marvel Universe programming block, has been a constant performer for the youth-skewing cabler, posting gains in total viewers and across boys ages 6-14, 6-11 and 2-11.

The series has been produced at Film Roman for the past eighteen months (FR also does The Simpsons and Dan Vs..) I've been informed that despite Marvel launching its own brand spanking new animation studio, Ultimate Spiderman will remain at Film Roman, across from the Bob Hope airport.

(Sony Adelaide -- Sony Pictures tv animation unit -- produced an earlier incarnation of Spiderman a decade ago, when Toby MacGuire was playing the lead in the live-action features. The franchise never dies, but the actors and production entities continually change ...)
