Cartoon Network Plans Fantasy, Movie Nights

Apr 3, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Cartoon Network said the new George Lucas series “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” will anchor a fantasy/adventure block on Fridays, part of a new schedule for Turner Broadcasting’s kids network.
Sunday night will be movie night on the channel, which announced it is developing a sequel to its original live-action movie “Ben 10: Race Against Time.” The movie night will include other original movies, plus acquired titles.
Thursday will be Cartoon Network’s night for comedy. Freshman animated series “Chowder,” which was picked up for a second series, will appear on Thursdays, along with “Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends,” “George of the Jungle” and “The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack,” which launches this summer.”
The announcements were made at Cartoon Network’s upfront presentation in New York on Thursday.
The network also said it was launching the Cartoonstitute, a swift development program for animated pilot that aims to create up to 150 pieces of programming over a period of 20 months.
The program will be artist-led and spearheaded by executive producer Craig McCracken, who created “Foster’s” and “The Powerpuff Girls” and supervising producer Rob Renzetti, who did “Dexter’s Laboratory.” The Cartoonstitute will create an in-house, all-star team of artists, directors, storyboarders and writers to generate content across a number of platforms.
“These are just the first steps in the evolution of a programming strategy that will lay the groundwork for highlighting all of our strengths moving forward,” said Chief Content Officer Rob Sorcher, who joined the network last year. “We now have great tentpoles to launch these new nights and a platform to showcase established and up-and-coming talent.”
