Initially, a total of 52 episodes of a runtime of 11 minutes will be produced, the new show is currently in the pre-production stage, a pilot for a proposed TV series was greenlit in late 2015.

Monster Beach tells the story of an unusual tropical island inhabited by mostly friendly surfing monsters living alongside humans. Monster Beach is created by Patrick Crawley, Bruce Kane and Maurice Argiro at Australian studio – Bogan Entertainment Solutions Animation. The animated series will follow the adventures of Jan and Dean and their efforts to defeat the evil monster – Dr. Knutt and his Tiki henchmen.

The new series follows another locally commissioned animated series from both Bogan and Turner Asia-Pacific – Exchange Student Zero which premiered in 2015 and like Monster Beach, it also originated as an animated TV movie. Both productions are an Asia-Pacific joint effort, with animation produced by Philippines-based studio – Top Draw Animation.
