- This January, his parents and Kickstart Entertainment announced that the beloved pug is working on a new project.
- The superstar pug’s life and personality will be the basis for the new animated comedy series.
Doug the Pug has been adding more feathers to his cap. From being an accomplished actor, best-selling author, People’s Choice Award winner, and social media superstar, he is now working on an animated series!
The new project will have Doug as a cartoon and his parents, Leslie Mosier and Rob Chianelli, Kickstart Entertainment, and producer Loris Kramer Lunsford are helping him prepare for the role.
Doug’s personality and life will be the basis for the animated comedy series and everyone is excited for this new venture in Doug’s multi-faceted life.
His parents said, “It has been a dream of ours since day one to create an animated series around the ‘World of Doug The Pug,’ and Kickstart is the dream team to do it with.”
Doug and his co-creators believe that Doug’s more than 19 million online followers and the more than 1 billion who viewed him on YouTube would get to know Doug more in the series.
As Kickstart founder and CEO Jason Netter said: “The huge success of Doug the Pug across social media platforms and beyond is exactly the kind of foundation Kickstart loves to build stories around. Doug is ready to take his mainstream appeal to an even broader audience, and the entire Kickstart team is ready to develop this beloved character into animated programming,”
