CAKE has taken on a distribution deal with Turner Entertainment Networks for the live action comedy Incredible Crew. Created by producer and entertainer Nick Cannon and showcasing six up-and-coming young comedy stars, the half-hour sketch show was launched as part of CAKE’s catalogue at MIP Junior.
Every episode of this high-energy, fast-paced show delivers hilarious comedy bits, outrageous hidden camera pranks, original music videos and commercial parodies all with a distinct attitude—a contemporary blend of internet sensibility mixed with kid imagination.
Poking fun at common aspects of kids’ lives at school, at home, and with friends. Whether it’s putting a cool spin on cruising through town in your mom’s minivan or mocking fads like friendship bracelets and hair accessories, these sketches are sure to have kids in stitches.
Incredible Crew stars a wild comedy troupe, nominated at the Young Artist Awards for Outstanding Young Ensemble in a TV Series. The show is 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).
The 13 episodes debuted on Cartoon Network the beginning of 2013. Cannon was joined by executive producers Michael Goldman and Scott Tomlinson for the series, produced by Cartoon Network Studios in association with NCredible Entertainment.
Ed Galton, CCO & Managing Director, CAKE, said “We are delighted to be working with Turner Entertainment Networks on such an original series as Incredible Crew. We are always hungry for great live action shows but it’s a tough spot to fill. This series manages to pack a punch and we think such good comedy will really travel internationally.”
