Boat Rocker signs up to adapt Nick Bruel’s Bad Kitty books into animated series

Eighteen Bad Kitty books have been published in 23 languages

ANNECY: Canadian entertainment company Boat Rocker has secured the rights to develop an animated children’s series based on Nick Bruel’s Bad Kitty books.

Bad Kitty centres on a house cat named Kitty, who often wreaks havoc around her owner’s home. Whether she is trying to be good or be quiet and behave, it seems trouble finds a way to her.

The Bad Kitty books were first published in 2005, since when 18 books have been published in 23 languages. The book series is represented by Jennie Dunham at Dunham Literary and Brendan Deneen.

“I’m horribly allergic to cats, but it turns out what Nick created with Bad Kitty, a book series that is beloved by millions of fans around the world for its humour and accessible storytelling, is the perfect remedy,” said Bob Higgins, exec VP of content for Boat Rocker Studios Kids & Family.

The Bad Kitty series will join Boat Rocker’s other kids’ shows, which include Dino Ranch for Disney and CBC/SRC, the upcoming Daniel Spellbound for Netflix, The Next Step for CBBC/iPlayer, YTV and HBO Max, and Amber Brown for Apple TV+.

The company also recently announced it is developing Stuffed, based on the globally popular web comic and book series, into an animated series.
