From a media release:
Grojband Rocks the TELETOON Lineup this Fall
- Canadian premiere of this TELETOON Original Series airs Thursday, September 5 at 7 p.m. ET/PT
What do you get when you combine wicked tunes, over-the-top teen angst and epic sibling rivalry? Grojband, a brand new TELETOON Original Series premiering on Thursday, September 5 at 7 p.m. ET/PT, during the Canâ€™t Miss Thursdays programming block.
In this half-hour series, 12-year-old Corey Riffin starts a garage band with his three best friends and quickly realizes that their band sucks â€“ like, a lot. Itâ€™s not their music or ever-changing image thatâ€™s the problem. Itâ€™s Coreyâ€™s lack of lyrics. He just can’t think of anything cool to write about, until Core finds his older sister Trinaâ€™s diary, which is full of teen angst. Corey and the band â€œsecretlyâ€ use her latest diary entry as lyrics to their new tune and the result is pure awesomeness. The only problem is that Trinaâ€™s a total witch and canâ€™t stand the thought of her little brotherâ€™s garbage band becoming more popular than her. But luckily Corey always knows just what to do to drive Trina to her diary and give the band the one thing theyâ€™re missing â€¦ words.
Produced for TELETOON by Fresh TV Inc., in association with FremantleMedia Kids and Family Entertainment, Grojband is created by Todd Kauffman and Mark Thornton. Executive Producers are Tom McGillis, Jennifer Pertsch, George Elliott and Brian Irving. Executive Producers for FremantleMedia Kids and Family Entertainment are Bob Higgins and Sander Schwartz.
