Day Job News: Littlest Pet Shop Premieres in November!

While there are no curmudgeonly dragons or mischievous wizards to be found on Littlest Pet Shop, I'm pleased to report that the show I've been writing on for almost a year is going to start airing next month on The Hub TV Network. In addition to the hyper-adorable character designs, there's some smart and, imho, funny writing attached, too.

What's the show about? From the press release:
“Littlest Pet Shop” follows Blythe Baxter and her father as they move into a Big City apartment above the Littlest Pet Shop – an amazing day-camp for pets of all kinds including a doggie diva, dancing gecko and sweet, adorable panda.  Her real adventure begins when she discovers that she alone can miraculously understand and talk to all of the pets.  She joins them on fantastical adventures that include uproarious song-and-dance sequences featuring all-new original music."
Sounds fun to me! Littlest Pet Shop, or LPS as we showbiz insiders call it, is a hoot to write for and I'm hoping the viewers will get a kick out of it, too. I'll post more details as they become available. Here's the promo:

Congratulations! It must be nice to see your hard work pay off. So many children like animals, so there'd be a market there...

Thanks, Cynthia. I hope you're right. I think the kids will enjoy the show and the parents won't be chased out of the room either. I know it's suspect coming from me, a writer on LPS, but I honestly do think there's something for everyone on this show.

Love it!! It must be so rewarding and thrilling to see your work play out on screen like this. It's a shame you can't see your name in huge letters at the beginning, like "Roger Eschbacher's Littlest Pet Shop" or something. But anyway, congratulations! :-)

Thanks, Keith. I love writing animation so, yes, it's very rewarding.

The ultimate goal would be to create (and sell) my own animated project. I've been working on it for a while so, who knows, maybe it'll happen someday.
