He’s also just completed his own, original feature film, They’re Watching.
“When Gary and Greg came to me with The Nine Lives of Claw, I knew it was something I had to look long and hard at. This show has all the elements needed today for animation success. I see so many opportunities in this series to tell great stories that make kids laugh and want to watch more," says Lender.
Jay will be working in various roles on The Nine Lives of Claw. He is currently directing the first episode, and will also write, direct, and produce future episodes as the season unfolds.
“Even though we have had tremendous early success with The Nine Lives of Claw, we knew we needed one of the best out there to lend their ideas and humor to take Claw to the next level. Having a talent like Jay on board is like hitting the animation jackpot!” exclaims, Greg Scheetz, co-creator of The Nine Lives of Claw.
