Cartoon Network At Asian Animation Summit 2017

Last week (29th November to 1st December) was the 2017 Asian Animation Summit in Brisbane, Australia. The summit was a gathering of Asia-Pacific animation industry leaders, independent studios, distributors, investors and animators who want to pitch their work. Representing Cartoon Network Asia-Pacific at the event were Silas Hickey – Senior Director, Original Production & Development and Mark Eyres – Senior Vice President & Chief Content Officer. Cartoon Network is also a sponsor of the event.

One new animated show from Australia has grabbed Turner’s attention at event – “Wormholes”. Wormholes is a new animated science fiction series for children created by Mike Greaney and developed by Mike Greaney, Marc Gallagher and Pennie Brown, the show is produced by Australian studio – Oh Yeah Wow and the Victoria state government media agency – Film Victoria.

As described on the Wormholes website – Wormholes follows the adventures of Cate Klinger, an energetic go-getter and natural born leader, and Curtis Klinger, her quiet, scientifically minded older brother. Both Cate and Curtis live in Kingsford Bluffs, a small Earth town at the centre point of a huge network of wormholes, which makes it the number one stop-over point for aliens crossing the galaxy!

In each episode, the kids, along with their guardian, a 40,000 year old space crustacean named Shrimps, are embroiled in sci-fi shenanigans: helping settle new alien arrivals, playing with extreme extraterrestrial technology, and following the trail of all of the unexplained events and wormholes that occur in Kingsford Bluffs.

While describing “Wormholes”, Silas Hickey said:

“I’m attracted to its hand-drawn tactility, which is not just a point of difference. It’s something that really resonates with kids because it looks like it has a human touch and exists in real time and space. It’s different, but it has an auteur kind of feel. I think we’ll see a lot more of this.”

Just to be clear, Turner has not announced that they’ve brought the rights to “Wormholes”, although it gives an insight to what type of content they’re looking for, children’s television rivals – Nickelodeon Australia has also expressed an interest in the show.
