From a media release:


  • Original New Blended State of Art CGI Animation with Live Action Television Series for TELETOON Being Shot at Studio 40 – Toronto

Production of the Cookie Jar series MUDPIT, set to air on Canada’s TELETOON English and TÉLÉTOON French in Fall 2011, is now underway at downtown Toronto’s CBC studio 40 with an exceptional cast of musically diverse, talented teens.

Cookie Jar Entertainment’s MUDPIT takes place at the nexus of the social and personal power of music and the appeal of role-playing in a digital world. This CGI animated/live-action series follows four real-world teens and their rock band, MUDPIT, as they follow their dreams of fame and fortune. The series takes place in a gaming café and a fantastic, virtual world known as MUZIKA. Their online avatar rock band personas battle for a coveted record deal, while their real life selves engage in the daily comedy and drama of teenage life.

The MUDPIT series was created by Jamie Waese. Bruce Kalish is the series Executive Producer/Showrunner.

Cast members include Montreal’s Jesse Rath as band leader Liam/Lamb. Carleigh Beverly who has appeared in “Connor Undercover,” the ABC drama “Rookie Blue” and the Lifetime Original Movie, “Who Is Clark Rockefeller?” backs the crew up as power drummer Geneva/G.
