Good morning. It’s Thursday, April 22, 2010, and this is your first early morning Kids briefing.
The kids advertising upfront season continued yesterday with Cartoon Network‘s annual presentation at the Time Warner Center in NYC, during which the network unveiled that among its sports-centric programming, it will host the first ever kids sports awards, Cartoon Network’s Hall of Game, as part of its plan to broaden program offerings for its 2010-2011 season. The network also presented 25 new series, TV movies, and specials, including sneak peeks at the new CGI animated The Looney Tunes Show, and the previously announced live-action series Unnatural History and Tower Prep, the four animated shows that will make up the quarter-hour comedy block, and its newest series Adventure Time, as well as 13 returning series, featuring a mix of animated and live-action shows. The presentation featured appearances by Tony Gonzalez (NFL – Atlanta Falcons/tight-end) supporting the new season of the short-form series My Dad’s A Pro, which will star his son Nikko (9), Destroy Build Destroy host, musician Andrew W.K., and the three stars of Dude, What Would Happen.
The four new quarter-hour shows include
Technicolor jumps into the world of original content with the formation of a team to develop and produce original kid-targeted animated programming content. And with that the company has acquired its first literary property, Pete & Pickles, about an unlikely friendship of mismatched characters, by Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist Berkeley Breathed (Bloom County). Joining the company are Jean MacCurdy and Fonda Snyder, who will team with Steven Wendland VP/Digital Productions, Technicolor, to manage the new group and lead the new initiative. MacCurdy was formerly President, Warner Bros. Animation, and Snyder was co-founder and former President, Storyopolis Productions. Wendland, who joined Technicolor in 2008, previously toiled for a decade at Mainframe Entertainment. Technicolor’s animation studio, Paprikaas, is based in Bangalore, India.
Emma Roberts and Freddie Highmore are set to star in the new teen romance movie Homework, currently filming in NYC, per Variety. Also featuring Alicia Silverstone, Elizabeth Reaser, Blair Underwood and Rita Wilson, Homework being produced by Gigi Films and Mint Pictures, with writer/director Gavin Wiesen at the helm.
Alan Cumming exits the delayed Broadway musical Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark, due to scheduling conflicts, per Variety. Cumming had been set to play the role of the villainous Green Goblin. Directed by Julie Taymor (The Lion King) and featuring music by U2’s Bono and The Edge, the show had been set to open this winter and was delayed by issues related to raising funds for the production. Evan Rachel Wood, who had been set to play Mary Jane, pulled out of the show last month. Reeve Carney is still set to star as Spider-Man, though there is no confirmation yet as to when the show will open.
