Cartoon Network has picked up an untitled kids sketch comedy series from entertainer Nick Cannon. The series is a live-action, half-hour, sketch comedy show which is described as “rooted in raw mischief, high energy and slapstick humor. You’ll never know what will happen next!”
Some of the silliest kids in show business will make up this wild comedy troupe, led by teen stars Jeremy Shada (Adventure Time), Shameik Moore (Joyful Noise), Brandon Soo Hoo (Enders Game, Tropic Thunder), Shauna Case (American Horror Story) and Chanelle Peloso (Level Up).
“Nick Cannon has created a contemporary take on sketch comedy that will launch the next generation of Cartoon Network stars,” said Rob Sorcher, chief content officer for Cartoon Network.
“Cartoon Network is the absolute best home for this series and I am thrilled to be working with them. As someone who was given an opportunity in this business at a very young age, I am always looking for ways to help shine the spotlight on up and coming young comedic talent and this show is the perfect platform for these future stars,” said Cannon.
Cannon will “bring the funny” as creator and executive producer, along with executive producers Michael Goldman and Scott Tomlinson. The series is being produced by Cartoon Network Studios in association with NCredible Entertainment.
