Children’s book series Timmy Failure being adapted for film by Disney

His name is Failure. Timmy Failure. And he’s the owner of the best investigative agency in town — perhaps the world.

According to him, anyway.

Timmy is the founder, president and CEO of Total Failure, Inc. detective agency. He’s the star of author Stephan Pastis’ six-book children’s series, featuring the 11-year-old detective’s adventures as he solves crimes with his business partner and accountant Total, who happens to be a 1,500-lb polar bear, and his best friend Rollo Tookus.

The book series is now being transformed into a live-action film adaptation by Walt Disney Pictures.

Crew was on site at the Cloverdale Fairgrounds on Thursday afternoon, setting up for a large stunt in which a vehicle will travel through a house.

Crew members and cranes were set up in the parking lot in front of the Agriplex, positioning large green screens and getting everything ready. The area around the lot is currently closed to traffic.
