Teletoon gets a date

Toronto – Teletoon and marblemedia have inked a development deal for a new series aimed at teens and young adults. The Dating Guy – now in the works with cowriters Jeremy Winkels (My Dad the Rock Star), Lienne Sawatsky (Delilah & Julius) and Daniel Williams (The Hamster Cage) – will follow the love life of a twentysomething guy based on marblemedia partner Mark Bishop.

‘Everybody knows a guy who has some crazy dating stories and The Dating Guy will be the animated version of that guy,’ he says. CORE Digital Pictures (The Wild, Angela Anaconda) will turn out the animation.
