Interplay Entertainment Corp. is teaming with APA to develop Interplay’s “Earthworm Jim” gaming franchise into an animated TV series.
The series would follow the adventures of Jim, a worm in a futuristic robotic suit who fights evildoers and navigates the galaxy with each planet home to a race of anthropomorphic animals.
Jim ultimately seeks his true home among the stars: a near-mythical planet called Earth. The first game in the series was released on Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo in 1994 with three further titles to follow. Warners also created a WB cartoon series based on the property back in the mid-1990s.
