Sony Pictures is turning the ‘Hotel Transylvania’ film into a TV show. They have tapped Nelvana, Candian cartoon producer, to produce an animated TV series based on the hit film.  The TV adaptation of the film will center around Dracula’s daughter, Mavis, and her friends.

Tuesday Kristine Belson, Sony Pictures Animation president, said “Audiences have embraced the world and characters of Hotel Transylvania, so we are thrilled to be partnering with Nelvana to take them on new adventures, expanding on the teenage years of Mavis and her friends at the world-famous monster five star resort!”

Rick Mischel (Sony Pictures Animation), and Nelvana’s Colin Bohm and Irene Weibel are executive producing the adaptation.   Sony Pictures TV will distribute the series in the U.S., while Nelvana Enterprises will handle worldwide distribution.   A TV airdate in early 2017 is planned. ‘Hotel Transylvania 2’ is premiering in theaters on Sept. 25.
