New Cartoon Network Original from Gumball Team


Cartoon Network has given the go-ahead to Elliott from Earth, a new original animated series from the U.K.-based team behind The Amazing World of Gumball.

Elliott from Earth will follow the adventures of a human boy living on a spaceship with aliens from around the universe. The 20×11-minute sci-fi sitcom, which will be made out of Cartoon Network’s EMEA hub, is slated to begin production this September. It is created by Guillaume Cassuto, a former scriptwriter and composition supervisor on Gumball, with that show’s scriptwriting, storyboarding and editing team also on board.

Cassuto said: “Elliott’s story has been in the back of my mind for a long time, and working my way through a number of different roles on Gumball gave me a unique look into how to bring such a project to life. I’m beyond excited to have the chance to introduce Elliott to the world, and very proud to have this amazing team with me for the ride. I hope kids and animation fans across the universe will love Elliott just as much as we do.”
