Following a trio of theatrical films, the beloved children's characters Alvin, Simon and Theodore are set for their first TV series in more than 20 years. The new CGI-animated Alvinnn!!! and the Chipmunks was commissioned by M6 in France, and has been picked up for two seasons by Nickelodeon to air on more than 70 networks internationally outside of North America and Brazil in early 2,015. PGS Entertainment has the worldwide media rights, excluding the U.S. and France, for the series, which comes from the husband and wife producing team of Ross Bagdasarian and Janice Karman.
Bagdasarian and Karman are the co-owners and CEO and president, respectively, of Bagdasarian Productions, which is producing the new show along with OuiDO! Productions. Karman is also the series creator. Bagdasarian took over shepherding the Alvin and the Chipmunks brand when his father, the original creator, passed away. He and Karman voiced the characters through the incarnations in the '80s and '90s, and are now bringing the chipmunks to a new generation of fans. Bagdasarian and Karman talk with TV Kids Weekly about updating the brand for viewers today.
