I am so excited to be working with such a great group of talented professionals and producers. Max and Wrigley is inspired from a wonderful book series with such a positive message for kids. There isnt enough of that out there these days. It is an amazing group of professionals and to take such a wonderful book series and bring it to life in a cartoon will be an amazing process. I Can't wait to see it come to life! I am so grateful to Anthony and Craig and Paw City for giving me the opportunity to help bring it off the page and onto the screen!
