Canada’s TELETOON is taking adult viewers back to high school with the premiere of Bromwell High on Monday, March 7, at 10:30 p.m. The new comedy about three exceptionally naughty schoolgirls, one maverick headmaster and a bunch of desperate, underpaid teachers will air regularly on Mondays and Fridays at 10:30 p.m. and 1 a.m. during the broadcaster’s adult animation block, The Detour.
Bromwell High takes place on the grounds of a sub-standard, under-funded, overcrowded, graffiti-scarred secondary school in South London. The three main characters are Keisha Marie, the dim-witted but tough girl; Latrina, a teenage Lolita; and Natella, a pint-sized Einstein.
A TELETOON original production, Bromwell High is co-produced by the U.K.’s Hat Trick Prods. and Canada’s Decode Ent. The Hat Trick team includes Anil Gupta, producer of the award-winning BBC hit comedy, The Office, which is being reworked for U.S. audiences by NBC for air this fall.
Also joining the Detour lineup this month is The Venture Brothers, which will make its Canadian debut on Sunday, March 13 at 10:30 p.m. Following its premiere, the series will settle into a regular spot at 1 a.m. on Fridays. The show about idiot fraternal twins who travel around the world with their scientist father and family bodyguard currently airs during Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim block in the U.S. Jackson Publick, who wrote for The Tick animated and live-action series, created the half-hour comedy, which is produced by New York-based animation studio Noodlesoup Prods.
