TELETOON Canada, the nation’s all-animation cable channel, has commissioned Breakthrough Entertainment to produce a new primetime family comedy called Crash Canyon.
The channel has ordered 13 half-hour episodes of the series, which Breakthrough will produce in conjunction with Jam Filled Entertainment and The Simpsons co-executive producer Joel Cohen.
‘What really excites me about this project is that we are welcoming back a great Canadian talent,’ said Len Cochrane, president of TELETOON. ‘Joel is a smart, funny man and with his expertise, along with Breakthrough as a production partner, we’re set to have an impressive primetime comedy that will shine on TELETOON at Night.’
The series will be about the Wendell family, who accidentally drive off a cliff and land in an inescapable canyon. Meeting other trapped misfits, they join the community of Crash Canyon.
