Nick has a new animated short in the oven

Nickelodeon’s first crack at taking pitches at San Diego Comic-Con last month has yielded a green light for animated shorts series Cupcakery of Doom, created by Trevor Reece of Eureka, Calif., a writer for The Press Democrat newspaper’s comics blog. Nick took more than 100 pitches during the event, ultimately deciding on this comedic story about a bear and a mouse with designs on taking over the world. Cupcakery will be developed as part of Nickelodeon’s global Animated Shorts Program, and will have the potential to air on the network, appear on the newly relaunched website and Nick App. “It was a grueling and gratifying three-day open call,” said Jenna Boyd, Nick SVP, animation development. “Besides Trevor, there are some people we met whom we will have continuing relationships with, possibly to join our production teams or talk further about their concepts and ideas.”
