Family entertainment producer Fresh TV, leading kids’ entertainment specialist CAKE, Corus Entertainment’s TELETOON and Cartoon Network US have teamed up once more on the much-anticipated re-invention of the world renowned Total Drama franchise.
Total Drama Daycare (52 x 11 minutes), the outrageous, unexpected and totally random prequel to the Total Drama franchise, is currently in production and will premiere on Cartoon Network in the US and TELETOON in Canada in 2018.
Total Drama Daycare re-introduces favourite cast members like loveable Owen and uptight Courtney but ages them down from teenagers to toddlers. While the cast may be pint-sized, their teen personalities are fully-formed with the voices we know and love and each episode is packed with dream sequences, cutaways, visual jokes, confessionals and flashbacks. So, whether it’s using Uber to have a Ferris Bueller-style day off or scaring away a new teacher, our cast is ready to scale the walls, hack the school computer and do whatever it takes, because make no mistake… these toddlers are here to PLAY!
A multi-award winning franchise from creators Tom McGillis and Jennifer Pertsch, Total Drama first hit screens in 2007 with Total Drama Island. The first animated reality series for tweens, it was an instant hit and ten years later, continues to generate high ratings and garner huge interest from millions of fans from all over the world. Produced by Fresh TV, in association with TELETOON and Cartoon Network, Total Drama is distributed internationally by CAKE and has aired in over 260 countries.
Ed Galton, CCO & Managing Director at CAKE said, “It’s very exciting to be teaming up with Fresh TV, TELETOON and Cartoon Network once again. A successful relationship which has spanned a decade and six series, we are thrilled to be working together on what promises to be a mind-blowing sensational take on the Total Drama story.”
“We haven’t laughed this hard in years,” adds co-creator Tom McGillis. “We’re channelling all that teen angst and attitude through four year-olds and the results are endlessly funny.”
