OK K.O.! Heroes Makes a Splash with an Hour-Long Premiere in August


Cartoon Network has recently announced that their new animated series, OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes will be debuting on August 1 at 6:30 pm ET/PT via a special hour-long premiere episode. The series focuses on the eponymous K.O., who is a perpetually optimistic kid aspiring to be the greatest hero of all. The story is set in a video game inspired world, in a town called Lakewood Plaza.

OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes is created by Ian Jones-Quartey, named one of Variety’s “10 Animators to Watch” in 2016, and previously served as co-executive producer on pop culture hit, Steven Universe. Jones-Quartey also voices Rad and the featured voice cast includes Courtenay Taylor (Regular Show in Space) as K.O., Kate Flannery (The Office) as Carol, Ashly Burch (Adventure Time) as Enid and David Herman (MADtv) as Mr. Gar. OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes is produced by Cartoon Network Studios.

Staying in sync with OK K.O.!’s video game theme, a new console game called OK K.O.! Let’s Play Heroes will also be released. The game blends action brawler with RPG elements and will be launching later this fall in partnership with Capy Games.
