CNBC’s First Animated Character

By Brian 

“CNBC is developing an animated series based on the comic strip ‘CEO Dad,’ which could become a half-hour series on the network in the fall,” The Hollywood Reporter reveals.

“Sources said the network will likely air five one-minute shorts that will be cut from a pilot based on the cartoon written by Los Angeles executive recruiter Tom Stern. A half-hour series to air on CNBC could follow, though it’s by no means assured.” It could air in primetime. “It would mark the first time the business channel has delved into animation.”
