Shorts to Series

So Nick was taking civilians' pitches at Comic-Con, and ...

... Cupcakery of Doom will be developed into an animated short and, as with all content chosen for Nickelodeon’s global Animated Shorts Program, it will have the potential to air on the network, appear on the newly relaunched and Nick App, or even be developed into a long-form animated TV series. ...

This is a quarter-step removed from Hanna-Barbera's original shorts program, where H-B's employees were invited to pitch their pet projects to the studio and get them made as six-minute shorts ... then thirteen half-hours for television.

I wonder how many pitches were taken at the Con? And how long people had to make the sale?
