Disney Television Animation has begun production on a new animated comedy series titled Fish Hooks for Disney Channel.
The new series, about three aquatic friends who live in a fish tank, combines 2-D animation with photo collage techniques. The series will air on Disney Channels Worldwide starting in fall 2010.
The series was created by children’s book illustrator Noah Z. Jones. It was developed for television by Alex Hirsch (The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack) and Bill Reiss (Chowder), executive-produced by Adam Burton (The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy) and co-executive produced by Noah Z. Jones. Carl Greenblatt (Chowder) and Bill Reiss will direct.
“Fish Hooks” features a voice cast that includes Kyle Massey (Cory in the House) as Milo, an adventurous party guy; Chelsea Staub (JONAS) as Bea, an overly dramatic goldfish; and Justin Roiland (The Sarah Silverman Program) as Oscar, Milo’s neurotic brother.
