Cartoon Network Africa Pop Up Party New Original Live Action Shorts
Cartoon Network Africa have teamed up with one of Africa’s leading content creators, Urban Brew Productions, to launch a locally produced series of live-action shorts called ‘Pop Up Party’, aimed at entertaining audiences on the African continent.
The new shorts will follow a young crew of local dancers appearing in unexpected locations to create a vibrant, unique and fun instant Pop Up Party. Everything in the secret location seems normal… until the music starts and everything suddenly changes. After the instant party has finished, it will look like as if nothing had happened.
Pierre Branco, VP and Managing Director of Turner Africa, made this statement in regards to the new localised short-format show:
“Over the last couple of years, the Internet has seen many viral dance fads that have taken the internet by storm and got the world moving, but this will be on a whole other level as it will be aimed specifically at kids on the African market, which has not experienced this directly. With this in mind, Cartoon Network will launch Pop Up Party to entertain and expose all Africans to Cartoon Network’s amazing world of kids entertainment with this fresh localised series of shorts. Turner is proud of our audience on the African continent and to show our commitment to Africa, Cartoon Network will be producing more local inspired shows, using some of Africa’s best and most inspiring talents”
Pop-Up Party premieres on Cartoon Network Africa on Saturday 23rd July, airs weekends at 4.30pm CAT, the new series will run until Sunday 18th September.
