As part of its strategy to expand into live-action programming, Cartoon has given a pilot-presentation order to a live-action project from Duchovny, Even Stevens creator Matt Dearborn and Robert Mora.
The untitled project, written by Dearborn, centers on a junior high school student from a long line of newsmen who turns his school AV Club into a hard-hitting citywide broadcast. Duchovny, Dearborn and Mora are executive producing.
Cartoon entered the live-action arena less than a year ago with the December debut of live-action/animated movie Re-Animated. A live-action series spinoff -- Out of Jimmy's Head -- premiered Friday night. Cartoon also recently aired a live-action reality special, Props, that gave kids a chance to meet their celebrity heroes.
Duchovny also executive produces Californication, which recently got picked up for a second season. He is repped by ICM, manager Melanie Greene and attorney Peter Nelson. »
NEW YORK -- With only an oblique reference to the fiasco in Boston that cost Turner Broadcasting System at least $2 million, Cartoon Network unveiled Wednesday at its upfront presentation five new series and 24 new movies and events for the coming year.
The upfront presentation, held at the Time Warner Center Manhattan, spent a good chunk of its time talking up the network's commitment to new media -- VOD, gaming and a new mobile phone application -- as well as its 662 planned new episodes.
The new series include an animated series on Santo, the Silver-Masked Man, a cultural hero in Mexico, which is being created and executive produced by Carlo Olivares Paganoni; Chowder, a Carl Greenblatt series about a young chef; The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack, about a young pirate; and The Secret Saturdays, about a family of scientists who travel the world to protect undiscovered phenomena.
Also getting a series order is Re-Animated, which last year had been Cartoon Network's first movie to mix live action and animation. »
