Cynopsis: Kids!

Good morning. It’s Friday, November 18, 2011, and this your first early morning briefing.

Cartoon Network acquires the TV rights to The Annoying Orange internet property.  Inspired by the viral sensation, with 850 million views on YouTube, a new half-hour TV series will premiere in 2012 as part of Cartoon Network’s original programming block.  Created by Dane Boedigheimer, The Annoying Orange TV series was developed and will be produced by The Collective, a management and production company, which also financed the pilot.  Boedigheimer co-created the TV series with Tom Sheppard (writer/Pinky and the Brain).  Conrad Vernon (director/Madagascar 3 and Monsters vs. Aliens) will serve as executive producer for the series along with The Collective’s Gary Binkow and Dan Weinstein.  The Annoying Orange has a dedicated YouTube channel and debuts new episodes every Friday.  The Annoying Orange short-form original content will continue to be produced separately from the TV series, and will be used to drive tune-in messaging.
