Disney Branded Television Developing Animated Workplace Sitcom “Intercats” for Disney+

According to Variety, Disney Branded Television is developing an animated workplace sitcom with Pamela Ribon and Baobab Studios, currently titled Intercats.

What’s Happening:

  • The series is said to be “about the cats who produce the hysterical cat videos that go viral on the Internet. It features a ragtag team of cats aspiring to get what all cats want: their independence. But to do so, they must first learn to navigate their own internal relationships and build upon their success as the premiere studio for viral cat videos.”
  • Baobab’s co-founder and chief creative officer Eric Darnell is the creator and executive producer of Intercats. Gary Marsh is also an executive producer. Jony Chandra (Spies in Disguise) will direct.
  • Ribon will be heavily involved with the development of Intercats under a new first-look deal she has signed with Disney Branded Television’s animation studio, Disney Television Animation, which will be working with Baobab on the series.
  • Ribon previously co-wrote the screenplay and story for the hit animated Disney sequel film Ralph Breaks the Internet and co-wrote the story for Moana.
  • When it debuts, Intercats will stream on Disney+.

What They’re Saying:

  • Meredith Roberts, executive vice president of TV Animation for Disney Branded Television said: “We’re fortunate to be partnering with Baobab for a second time and to be working with Pam whose smart, sly, sophisticated and inspiring humor ensures that Intercats will provide wild fun, rich characterizations and accessible entry points for every part of the Disney+ audience. We’re thrilled to have her on this project — and to expand the relationship to include an overall deal with our Disney TV Animation studio.”
