Something I've been hiding under my hat (besides a clean-shaven pate) is that for the last few months I have been working diligently on new episodes of "3-2-1 Penguins!"
Yes, I am executive producer* on this new season. Together with my producers, Joe Barruso & Sean Roche, we are creating twenty (yes, 20) new episodes for NBC this year.
The first episode, "I Scream, You Scream" written by Kirby Atkins and directed by me, will air October 6th. New episodes will follow every other week. So set your TiVo! We have new characters and totally new adventures.
I started out kind of re-jiggering the format of the show. You will definitely see some changes.
It seems, though, that we are falling between the cracks of the marketing machine. I haven't seen much promotion of the new shows. So pass along this info to your friends. Remember: New episodes of "3-2-1 Penguins!" Saturday mornings on NBC in the Qubo timeblock. Check your local listings.
Let me know what you think.
Future episodes are being directed by Tom Bancroft, Tod Carter, Rob Corley, John Wahba & Broose Johnson. The writers of this new season are: Kirby Atkins, David Murray, Robert G. Lee, Broose Johnson, Mitch Schauer, Meredith Jennings-Offen and myself.
We were also able to snag come incredible artists for storyboards and concept designs. Its a long list, but to name a few: Michael Spooner, John Nevarez, Eddie Pittman, Cedric Hohnstadt, and many many more.
