Cartoon Network’s New Talent And Interview With Nicole Rivera, Director Of Development At Cartoon Network Studios

Last Thursday (8th March), Cartoon Network Studios announced their largest animation slate ever, with new shows and continuing animated series, the channel has also been developing the next batch of animated programming from the next generation of creators, with stories relevant and reflective of children today. Cartoon Network often gives their own artists and show production staff opportunities to pitch new show ideas. If an idea for a show has potential, a pilot is made and if the pilot has a strong positive response from both fans and the channel’s management, the show is usually greenlit and becomes a fully-fledged animated series. A new alternative path of developing a show, is by creating a short animated series on Cartoon Network’s short-form animated content app – Cartoon Network Anything, this new approach was how Mighty Magiswords was initially developed.

Cartoon Network’s international divisions are always looking for new content to air on its television channels and digital services, new international content includes Cartoon Network Latin America’s Villainous and Cartoon Network Studios Europe’s The Heroic Quest of the Valiant Prince Ivandoe.

Cartoon Network’s new show creator talent include: Julia Pott (Summer Camp Island), Diego Molano (Victor and Valentino), Owen Dennis (Infinity Train), George Gendi (Apple and Onion) and Matt Burnett and Ben Levin (Craig of the Creek).

12 Things You Need To Know About Infinity Train

Cartoon Network USA’s 12 Things You Need To Know About Infinity Train

Cartoon Network USA has uploaded an introductory video to Infinity Train with twelve facts about the new show. The brand new animated mystery series will premiere in 2019. The show’s creator – Owen Dennis introduces himself at the start of the video and the twelve facts are as follows:

1. The first episode takes place in November as Autumn is the season of change, the show’s protagonist – Tulip is also experiencing changes and unknowns but is confident that she can solve the mystery of the train.

2. The idea of trains came from Owen’s experiences while traveling and also his childhood.

3. Tulip’s story arc and all of the train carts has already been planned out (including cross-eyed ducks, wizard gnomes and pinball themed carriages).

4. Corginia (The corgi dog kingdom themed carriage as seen in the pilot) was inspired by Owen’s pet corgi he had growing up.

5. The first number on Tulip’s hand is 115.

6. Tulip first meets One-One as a snowman head.

7. Who has a number is more important than what the number means.

8. If Tulip was a real person, she would take programming classes, Owen met up with female engineers from Google and thought Tulip would study computer programming as she’s an analytical person.

9. One-One’s design was inspired by Star Wars and other sci-fi robots.

10. The frog on Tulip’s pencil is the same one from Over The Garden Wall.

11. Tulip’s design has changed since the pilot.

12. Both Tulip and The Steward are voiced by the same actress, Ashley Johnson.

At the end of the video, Owen says a secret message, can you work out what it means? (Hint: It’s the name of the U.S. state where Owen grew up and where he studied animation).
