According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony will be releasing a direct-to-DVD animated Spider-Man series:
Sony Pictures Television is becoming the first major television studio to enter the direct-to-DVD market for series. SPT has launched Culver Entertainment, a company focused on developing and producing drama, comedy and animated series exclusively for DVD and international distribution. The first project under the Culver Entertainment banner will be a new animated Spider-Man series. The first 13 half-hour episodes of the show are expected to be released next year. SPT president Steve Mosko said the launch of Culver Entertainment, named after the Culver Studios where it will be housed, is part of the company's overall strategy of finding new ways to reach the consumer directly.
