The project, by former Pixar artist Colin Levy, will be adapted for television.
Universal Studio Group’s UCP and Peacock have landed rights to the 10-minute short film Skywatch. Created over the course of six years with help from volunteer artists, Colin Levy wrote and directed the short film. Levy and Mike Sundy co-wrote a feature script based on the short, posted to YouTube in December, where it has gained 1.4 million views. MacFarlane will executive produce via his Fuzzy Door Productions.
