Cartoon Network Greenlights Two New Shows
Cartoon Network has recently greenlighted two new animated series, which were originally conceived as part of a shorts development initiative at their Burbank studios. The first approved series is Steven Universe, which comes Rebecca Sugar, who is a writer and storyboard artist for Adventure Time. The next show is Uncle Grandpa, from Emmy award nominee Pete Browngardt. Both shows are already in the pre-production stage and scheduled for a 2013 debut.
Steven Universe focuses on the youngest member of a team of magical Guardians of the Universe, while Uncle Grandpa follows the titular character, who is both the uncle and the grandpa of everyone in the world. He’s also magical, by the way.
“Steven Universe and Uncle Grandpa will build upon our record-breaking streak with original programming, and further define the voice for Cartoon Network Studios comedies,” said Cartoon Network Chief Content Officer Rob Sorcher. “Rebecca and Pete represent our next generation of homegrown talent, following Pen Ward and JG Quintel who set a high bar with their distinctive visual storytelling and unique comedic styles.”
