The classic board game Cluedo – or Clue – is being turned into an animated series.
Variety reports that eOne has teamed with Fox Entertainment and Bento Box – the animation studio Bob’s Burgers – on the series, but no writers or producers are currently attached.
“‘Colonel Mustard…In the Conservatory…With the lead pipe.’ By just hearing these colourful phrases alone, you immediately know what they mean — leaving no mystery as to why ‘Clue’ is one of the most beloved board games-turned-IP of all time,” said Michael Thorn, president of entertainment for Fox Entertainment.
“We couldn’t be more excited to develop it as an animated series along with eOne and Bento Box.”
Pancho Mansfield, eOne’s president of global scripted programming, added: “We’re thrilled to team up once again with our great partners at Fox and Bento Box on this exciting new series.
“Clue is an iconic whodunit property that exudes mystery and intrigue, and has fans all over the world. We can’t wait to share our reimagined animated version with audiences.”
