CAKE & Fresh TV Unveil New Total Drama Series


CAKE, Fresh TV, Corus Entertainment’s TELETOON and Cartoon Network are partnering on a prequel of the Total Drama animated reality franchise called Total Drama Daycare.

Total Drama Daycare re-introduces a number of characters, including Owen and Courtney, as toddlers with fully formed teenage personalities. The 52×11-minute show is currently in production for broadcast on Cartoon Network in the U.S. and TELETOON in Canada next year.

Created by Tom McGillis and Jennifer Pertsch, the Total Drama franchise first began airing with the premiere of Total Drama Island in 2007. The tween-skewing show is produced by Fresh TV in association with TELETOON and Cartoon Network. It is distributed around the globe by CAKE.

Ed Galton, the CCO and managing director at CAKE, commented: “It’s very exciting to be teaming up with Fresh TV, TELETOON and Cartoon Network once again. A successful relationship which has spanned a decade and six series, we are thrilled to be working together on what promises to be a mind-blowing sensational take on the Total Drama story.”

“We haven’t laughed this hard in years,” added McGillis. “We’re channelling all that teen angst and attitude through 4-year-olds and the results are endlessly funny.”
