     K-9 goes down under

    General News

    Earlier this summer we relayed news from Outpost Gallifrey that suggested K-9 Adventures was still proceeding, despite a year's worth of silence on the subject.

    Today OG are citing a report from Film Finance Corporation Australia that the show is in fact proceeding as a more-or-less Australian domestic project.

    Network 10 are currently seen as the likely premiere network, building upon their Doctor Who spin-off success with Torchwood.

    Producers Penny Wall and Richard Stewart have now both been named. They both have a background in animation and live action principally aimed at young adults. Both, in fact, are coming to K-9 straight from the live-action Australian teenage thriller series, Acolytes. Also named are Simon Barnes (producer for Park Entertainment), and executive producers Grant Bradley, who is also attached to Acolytes, and Jim Howell (for Park Entertainment).

    A one-sentence premise for the series was also given by FFCA: "When we meet him in the new 26-part Australian kids know K9, this highly intelligent creature is guarding an abandoned prison transportation craft." This description seems to vaguely square with other hints dropped about the project since its announcement in 2005. However, it also seems to hint that the name of the series has been changed from K-9 Adventures to simply K9.

    What this new Australian financing means for the worldwide availability of the show is unclear. Jettix, an arm of the Walt Disney Company, remains attached to the project as a distributor outside Australia. The show remains a production of Park Entertainment of Bristol, creators of Wallace and Grommit and many other award-winning projects.
