Production Starts on New Comedy D.N.Ace


The original animated comedy-adventure series D.N.Ace, which explores DNA and gene swapping, has been greenlit to begin production.

D.N.Ace follows curious, adventure-loving, mischief-making 12-year-old Ace Ripley as he discovers that he has the ability to manipulate DNA by fusing the genes of a living thing with any other thing to create something entirely new. Ace uses his skill to create all kinds of creatures and tries to save his town from total chaos while also having the time of his life. D.N.Ace will air on Teletoon in Canada.

The Nelvana series was created by Matthew Wexler, who also executive produces. Each episode will be 2×11 minutes, with a total of 80 episodes (or 40×22 minutes). Dentsu and OLM will be representing the series in Japan and consulting throughout the production process.

“We can’t wait to introduce this stand-out series with its distinctive mix of sci-fi, fact, laughter and thrills to our viewers,” said Scott Dyer, the president of Nelvana Enterprises. “Kids love to create and dream up the unimaginable, and the inventive possibilities of D.N.Ace and its mashup mayhem will resonate well with our audience.”
