Ellen DeGeneres and Warner Bros. are teaming for Dog Show, an animation pitch from Alan Schoolcraft and Brent Simons, the writers behind DreamWorks Animation's' Master Mind.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, writer John Glenn (Eagle Eye) and producer David Manpearl developed the idea with Schoolcraft and Simons before approaching DeGeneres, who stamped it with her unique sensibilities. The team took the project around town, with Warners beating several suitors to take best in show.

While plot details are being kept on a leash, the story centers on a stray dog and her misfit friends who shake up the famed and pure-bred world of a Westminster-like dog show.
