Canada’s Teletoon and Skywriter Media & Entertainment Group are developing Camp Lakebottom, a new children’s animated series created by Betsy McGowen and Eric Jacobson.
The half-hour animated comedy series is aimed at kids 6-11 and is set at a “horrifying” summer camp where the cabins are possessed and the staff members creepy. The project is being developed for cross-platform digital integration, with lans for an online “campground,” games and avatars.
Series is being developed by Skywriter’s Meghan Davies and Teletoon’s Athena Georgaklis, written by Shelly Hoffman and Rob Pincombe (Kid vs. Kat), designed by Jam Filled’s Phil Lafrance and Jamie Leclaire (Jimmy Two Shoes, Crash Canyon) and executive produced by Skywriter Television’s Kevin Gillis (Atomic Betty, Jimmy Two Shoes).
“Camp Lakebottom is about as near to perfect fun that a kid could imagine. The kids run the camp, the counselors are zombies and monsters, and the parents have NO idea what’s really going on,’ said Gillis. “ We are happy to be working with Teletoon to make Camp Lakebottom every kid’s dream destination.”
