From Will Arnett, Crave announces new original adult animated comedy series, Super Team Canada

From a media release:

Crave announced today a 10-episode order for the new, half-hour adult animated comedy, SUPER TEAM CANADA, its first commission of an animated series. The Crave Original series is produced in partnership with Thunderbird Entertainment’s Atomic Cartoons (Max’s YOUNG LOVE), and Will Arnett’s Electric Avenue (SNAKE OIL, TWISTED METAL), and is currently in production with a premiere set for 2025.

Created by Canadian Emmy®-winning writers, and brothers, Robert Cohen (HBO’s SOMEBODY, SOMEWHERE, THE BIG BANG THEORY) and Joel H. Cohen (THE SIMPSONS), the animated comedy focuses on the exploits of six, little-known Canadian superheroes trying to save the world from evil giant robots, an unemployed octopus, and needy hardware store clerks. The stakes are high for these stereotypically underdog Canadian super-unknowns, who are called in as Earth’s last resort when all the other superheroes have been destroyed.

SUPER TEAM CANADA is produced by Thunderbird Entertainment’s Atomic Cartoons, and Will Arnett’s Electric Avenue, in association with Bell Media’s Crave. Showrunner Robert Cohen serves as an executive producer along with Joel Cohen, Atomic/Thunderbird’s Jennifer Twiner McCarron, Matthew Berkowitz and Kristin Cummings, Electric Avenue’s Will Arnett and Marc Forman.

Thunderbird Distribution and Brands oversee global media and consumer products rights for the series.

Comedian Gerry Dee, the creator of the sitcom, told Postmedia he’d signed a deal Thursday with CBS for the format rights to the series based on his career as a Toronto teacher.

Fellow Canadian Will Arnett will be shepherding the project through his production company. Continue reading.Facebooktwitterredditlinkedinmail
