An untapped spring of unlimited adventure awaits in the new Cartoon Network original series Craig of the Creek, launching on on the Emmy-winning Cartoon Network App and VOD on Monday, February 19. The show will make its on-air debut with a double premiere event on Fri., March 30 at 6:25 p.m. ET/PT (new episodes Mondays and Fridays) and will be featured at CN’s third annual SXSW family event on March 12.
Co-created by three-time Emmy-nominated Steven Universe writers Matt Burnett and Ben Levin, the show follows the precocious Craig as he leads his best friends J.P. and Kelsey on comical journeys at their neighborhood creek, transforming everyday afternoons into thrilling expeditions through imaginative play.
“Matt and Ben have a proven track record of artful storytelling that resonates with kids,” stated Rob Sorcher, chief content officer for Cartoon Network. “With Craig of the Creek, they’ve managed to capture real life rendered through a child’s point of view – seeing magic in the everyday, and a world of limitless possibilities.”
Burnett and Levin added: “We both fondly remember the times we spent at our local creeks growing up and wanted to bring the elements of exploration and mystery we felt as children to Craig and his friends. The Creek represents the many ways kids love to play and captures the excitement they experience when left to create moments of fun on their own.”
Craig of the Creek is exec produced by Cartoon Network Studios and is CN’s latest series to originate from its global Artists Program.
