Packages From Planet X


It's exciting AND difficult to work on a top secret idea and not be able to talk about it with the rest of the world. As the creator of said concept, I've been heavily involved with story development, visual development, character design, and writing for the entertainment pitch bible for the past 2 years. Now I'm finally able to share a tiny bit of info...

Back in June 2006, I pitched a TV show concept to American Greetings Intellectual Properties called "Packages From Planet X." It's a story about a kid who receives mysterious packages in the mail. The packages are filled with some pretty bizarre and amazing stuff, or even mundane items that do really bizarre things. Dan, the recipient and main character (above), doesn't know where the packages come from or who sends them. But the contents of these packages wreak havoc and hilarity on his life and his boring little town.

Check out this month's October issue of Kidscreen Magazine
for more info. That's all I can say about it for now. But stay tuned... I will post new information and art as it becomes available to the public!

This is just the first bit of public knowledge... can't say anything beyond this. I can say that I'm happy that this project has gotten to this point, and I can't wait for the the full story to come out. Keep fingers crossed!

Did you check for other trademarks using the "Planet X" brand ? ... especially in the TV category ?

Jeff Harter said...

Hey Don, I came up with the concept and title of "Packages from Planet X" before any of that. At the moment this is just a working title only.
