Cynopsis: Kids!
10.09.13

Good morning. It’s Wednesday, October 9, 2013, and this is your first early morning briefing.

TODAY’S TOP NEWS

Another great kids book series is headed for the small screen. Scholastic Media and Sprout are creating the animated interplanetary adventure Astroblast!, aimed at kids 2-5. The series, inspired by Scholastic’s Bob Kolar book about a crew of space animals who run a super-cool space station, will debut in summer 2014. It’s the first new Scholastic book-to-TV series to bow in three years, since the debut of Word Girl for PBS. “I’m delighted to be producing for Sprout. They have a brand that is very strong and is compatible with Scholastic’s core values,” Scholastic president Deborah Forte tells CynKids from MIPCOM. Forte says the series is rife with “story-telling and comedy that’s really appealing to kids and the basic themes of kindness, character and community in an environment that feels fresh.” Fans can expect lots of brand extensions. “We only do franchises, and we build them to endure,” Forte says. With television as “the emotional glue” for the show, she says Astroblast content will appear across multiple platforms and consumer segments. “Brands are really driving engagement in the digital ecosystem and so we have to make sure the emotional connectivity is there through the television.”

PROGRAMMING PICKS

The first-ever Disney XD Canadian Original Movie, zombie comedy Bunks, debuts Sunday, Oct. 27, at 8p. The story follows two troublemaking brothers who accidentally unleash a curse on their camp that brings every campfire story to life. Bunks stars Dylan Schmid (Once Upon A Time) and Aidan Shipley (Flashpoint), and was created by Tom McGillis and Jennifer Pertsch, and directed by Tibor Takacs (The Gate, The Gate II: Trespassers). The apocalyptic action continues at DisneyXD.ca, where fans can play new zombie-themed game Brain Freeze beginning Oct. 15.

It’s not every show creator that appears in a tune-in message for a series premiere. But we love that Rebecca Sugar (Adventure Time) stepped out from behind the camera to talk up her new Cartoon Net series Steven Universe. Loosely based on her younger brother, the show premiere Monday, Nov. 4, at 8p. – and follows the misadventures of the “little brother” of a team of magical guardians of humanity-the Crystal Gems. Steven Universe is created by Sugar, with Ian Jones-Quartey (The Venture Bros., Adventure Time) serving as supervising director and featuring voices talent including Zach Callison (Steven), Estelle, Deedee Magno Hall and Sinbad.

Ludorum preschool series Chuggington begins its fourth season on Disney Junior on Sunday, Oct. 20, at 7p with its first primetime special–Chug Patrol: Ready To Rescue. The half-hour special follows trainee Wilson, as he becomes a member of Chug Patrol, Chuggington’s rescue squad, and introduces a new character.

Marine wildlife series Ocean Mysteries with Jeff Corwin is back on ABC affiliates for season three. The series, created in partnership with Georgia Aquarium and Litton Entertainment, focuses on conservation issues, began airing Saturday, Oct. 5.

PRODUCTION NOTES

Elmo and Cookie are crossing the pond. Sesame Workshop is joining forces for the first time with CBeebies to create The Furchester, set to debut in the U.K. in Q4 2014. The Furchester is about a close-knit family of cheerfully incompetent monsters who own and operate an “almost” world-class hotel. Headed into production early next year, the series aims to promote and build creative problem solving skills for its young viewers. Tony Reed and Alison Stewart are exec producers for CBeebies and Carol-Lynn Parente is the executive producer for Sesame Workshop. Belinda Ward is headwriter for the series

Just like the big kids… Production is under way on Disney Junior‘s first Original Movie, Lucky Duck. The music-laden animated sea adventure is being voiced by Christian Borle and Megan Hilty (both of Smash), and Tom Cavanaugh (Royal Pains). Plot follows a plucky rubber ducky who accidentally gets tossed from a cargo ship, ventures off to find the perfect home and meets a gaggle of misfit tub toys along the way. Sounds like a little Nemo, a little Rudolf to us. Lucky Duck is directed by Don Kim (The Adventures of Chuck and Friends) and written by Michael G. Stern (Imagination Movers). Exec producers are Nelvana Studio’s Irene Weibel and Colin Bohm (Mike the Knight), and Rick Garcia and William Malpede (Rango) are composing.

Sprout is starting production on new original series Floogals. The Floogals is an 11-minute mix of CGI and live-action, co-produced by Sprout and The Foundation and distributed by Zodiak Kids. It follows the adventures of three diminutive aliens who land on earth and move in with a family to find out everything they can about human interactions. Series premiere on Sprout is slated for 2015.

Sonic the Hedgehog is headed back to a television near you. Sega’s iconic video game character, already star of 70-plus video games and four series, next fall will return to TV on Cartoon Network in his first CG animated comedy, Sonic Boom (working title). The show, co-produced by Sega of America and Genao Productions, centers on Sonic, his sidekick Tails, and their search for adventure.

Shaftesbury is partnering with actor, writer and producer Laura Vandervoort (Bitten, Smallville) on Super Duper Deelia, a new series created by Vandervoort and targeted to girls ages 6-12. Produced by Shaftesbury in association with John May and Suzanne Bolch of Heroic Television, the half-hour live action series follows the adventures of a young girl who discovers she has superpowers on her 10th birthday.

New series Digby Dragon heads into production in early 2014 at Blue-Zoo Productions in the U.K. Aardman Animations has taken on international TV, DVD and digital sales representation for the CGI show, which follows a fledgling dragon learning to fly. Nickelodeon U.K. already has commissioned 26 half-hours of the show, and Nickelodeon & Viacom Consumer Products will also represent consumer products for the property in the UK and Ireland.
