Renegade Begins “Heathcliff” Project

Pre-production has begun on new animated series “Heathcliff.” FitzRoy Media signed on Renegade Animation for design and production work on the property.

Darrell Van Citters, Renegade’s animation director, plans to update the look of the street-smart cat for both an adult and tween target audience. Citters has previously worked on projects, such as “Christmas is Here Again,” Cartoon Network’s “Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi” and “Captain Sturdy.”

FitzRoy Media also plans to release a new HeathCliff DVD in agreement with cartoonist Peter Gallagher, the nephew of Heathcliff creator George Gately.
