      Various media sources are reporting on an upcoming children's show
      starring K-9, the robotic dog from the 4th Doctor era (who is guest
      starring in the upcoming Doctor Who episode "School Reunion"). The
      sources do not say who will provide the voice or when it will
      premiere, but it is not a BBC production. Jetix Europe (with branded
      kids programme schedules on cable/satellite channels in many parts
      of the world) is behind the project.

      "Pet project for Dr Who's K-9

      "NEWS BRIEF: Jetix Europe is in development to give the robot dog
      sidekick from BBC series Doctor Who (below) his very own comedy-
      fantasy series.

      "K-9 Adventures (26x30') is being developed by Jetix and UK
      distributor Park Entertainment, in addition to Doctor Who writer Bob
      Baker and designer Paul Tams. The space-set series features a mix of
      cutting-edge CGI technology and live action.

      "Michael Lekes, senior VP of programming for Jetix Europe, said he
      predicted the series will be particularly popular with viewers in
      the UK following the recent "revival and widespread popularity" of
      the Doctor Who series, now starring Billie Piper and David Tennant."
