East Meets West on CN’s Exchange Student Zero
Cartoon Network has just started production on a new show from the AsiaPac region, which is intended for a worldwide release, titled ‘Exchange Student Zero.’ Produced by Australia’s Bogan Entertainment Solutions, the 13 x 22 series will be ready for broadcast in 2015.
Exchange Student Zero focuses on two boys who managed to bring a fictional character from an anime-inspired fantasy card game to life. They befriend the character and pass him off as an exchange student. Naturally, the clash of cultures and the fact that the character has abilities that are beyond the ken of mortal men result in a lot of chaos and hilarity in their neighborhood.
Aside from Exchange Student Zero, Cartoon Network has also started production on a feature-length TV special called Monster Beach, which focuses on surfing, scary locals, and two kids battling to save their worst nightmare.
