Cartoon Network Goes Live with Re-Animated

March 09, 2006

Cartoon Network has announced the beginning of production on Re-Animated, their first original movie that combines cartoon characters with live action. Re-Animated tells the story of 12-year-old Jimmy Roberts who, while visiting an amusement park, gets into a tragic accident and needs an emergency brain transplant. The doctors give him the frozen brain of a famous cartoonist, which enables Jimmy to see cartoons wherever he goes. Casting is underway and the Los Angeles-based production will begin shooting this spring. Re-Animated will premiere on Cartoon Network in fall 2006.

"When we read the script for Re-Animated, we thought it was innovative, irreverent and, most of all, funny," said Jim Samples, executive vice president and general manager of Cartoon Network. "We knew we had to make it. We think when it's done the 'Cartoon Network' way, kids will enjoy seeing animation and the real world collide."

Re-Animated is created by Adam Pava and Tim McKeon. Both were writers on Cartoon Network's hit series Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends and The Life & Times of Juniper Lee. Their first collaboration was writing and directing Weighty Decisions, a series of sketches for Cartoon Network's Sunday Pants show.

Cartoon Network (CartoonNetwork.com), currently seen in more than 88 million U.S. homes and 160 countries around the world, is Turner Broadcasting System, Inc.'s ad-supported cable service offering the best in original, acquired and classic animated entertainment for kids and families. Overnight from 11 p.m.-6 a.m. (ET, PT), Cartoon Network shares its channel space with Adult Swim, a late-night destination showcasing original and acquired animation for young adults 18-34.

Turner Broadcasting System, Inc., a Time Warner company, is a major producer of news and entertainment product around the world and the leading provider of programming for the basic cable industry.
