A fantastical island and a yeti summer camp are the settings for two new series on the way from Nelvana.

Several new kids productions in the works at Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana. Nelvana is in a development agreement with Brown Bag Films and Candy Bear for new girl-targeted CG-animated preschool series Cozy Island. Created by Gili Dolev and Yvette Kaplan and designed by Erez Gavish of Candy Bear, the series is about an imaginative girl named Naya who moves to Cozy Island with her family for her mother’s new job. She discovers the island is a “very bouncy place filled with amazing new friends.”… Nelvana is also developing CG-animated series Camp Yeti, together with the newly formed Abominable Snowman, led by Keith Chapman and Ian Liddell. The show is about a summer camp from Studio Liddell (Cloudbabies) to develop the 52 x 11-minute series about a special summer sleep-away summer camp where young yetis spend their days trekking through snowy peaks, making yeti crafts, eating spag-yeti and singing yeti songs around the campfire. Anticipated delivery is fall 2016.
