"Kung Fu Panda" Getting TV Series
Nickelodeon has ordered 26 episodes of Kung Fu Panda: The Series, the network announced last week. The order comes on the heels of the recent successful launch of The Penguins of Madagascar on the network.
The DreamWorks comedy will be adapted from the 2008 animated film and chronicle the adventures of Po the martial arts panda and his mentor Shifu and the Furious Five. The network did not announce casting.
Cheryl Holliday will executive produce the series, which will be produced at Nickelodeon Animation Studios in Burbank.
