The animated series will be directed by Jon Schnepp as well as the Titmouse Inc. animation studio. The Kickstarter will launch on Friday, March 16, 2012 and will run until May 1st, 2012.

The project requires a budget of $175,000 to cover the cost of the pilot episode and to produce the foundation materials necessary to continue the series. The official announcement of this Kickstarter project will be at WonderCon during the Hollywood and Comics 12:30 pm PST panel on March 16th.

Zenescope Entertainment President Joe Brusha had this to say:

“We believe that our Grimm Fairy Tales comic book series would make an excellent animated series, and we’ve been pitching the idea to the Hollywood big-wigs for years. They’ve said “There is too much Fairy Tales stuff out there”, or “No one wants to see a gritty, dark, modern take on the fairy tales.” That’s where they’re wrong. We have tons of devoted fans that would love to see more of our series, and that is our chance and yours to make it happen.”

Grimm Fairy Tales has been the flagship series of Zenescope Entertainment since the company started. Zenescope has grown to a top comic book publisher due to its continued success. Grimm Fairy Tales is currently the longest running independent color comic being published today and has over 1 million copies in print.

Jon Schnepp will be directing this project. He is one of the hottest animation directors in Hollywood, having already seen a great deal of success working on such series as Aqua Teen Hunger Force , Metalocalypse, and the Venture Brothers. Not only will Jon be working closely with the creators of the comic book, Joe Brusha and Ralph Tedesco; Zenescope will be enlisting Titmouse Inc, one of the premiere animation studios, to help with this vision.

Titmouse Inc is a premiere animation studio with top-tier talent and experience. Jon Schnepp has worked with them before on many of his projects, and much of their work rounds out the Adult Swim animation block on Cartoon Network. Their variety of experience is suited well for the Grimm Fairy Tales animation series anthology.

About Zenescope Entertainment 

Founded by Joe Brusha and Ralph Tedesco in 2005 and has quickly grown into one of the top comic book and graphic novel publishing companies in the world.  Zenescope’s Grimm Fairy Tales and subsequent spin-off series such as Escape From Wonderland, Neverland and The Piper, which put a dark twist on classic fables, are some of the best-selling and longest running original independent comic books on shelves today. This year, Zenescope will be bringing their comics to life in an animated series fans have been clambering for. 

About Titmouse Inc. 

Titmouse, Inc. was formed to sell the kind of bad ass t-shirts Chris P had been designing on the side for years. It started out great! The designs were great. The t-shirts were great. The vibe was great – but clients wouldn’t stop hiring Chris P to do animation. The networks and studios wanted to hire a company to do these projects, not just a dude freelancing. So Titmouse, Inc starting doing less clothing and more cartoons. We hired more and more employees, expanded into more and more offices in our West Hollywood location and eventually bought our own building in Hollywood to house the ever growing crew. We’re now over 100 people strong and rock multiple television series, movies, titles, shorts and commercials – all in house. We still even make an occasional t-shirt.
