CN Upfront 2008: "The Secret Saturdays" Comes to Fridays
Cartoon Network has ordered 26 episodes of The Secret Saturdays for a fall debut, the network announced at its Upfront 2008 event this morning. The new series will be part of their Friday night fantasy/adventure block.
The series, from Jay Stephens, has Doc, Drew and Zak Saturday as a family of world-saving adventure scientists called The Secret Saturdays who, from their hidden base, lead a network of scientists who protect the world from evil. Adventures take them from the Gobi Desert to the Marianas Trench as they explore ancient temples and bottomless caves and tangle with such villains as the masked madman V.V. Argost and his half-human/half-giant spider. Phil Morris, Nicole Sullivan, and Sam Lerner play the Saturdays; Diedrich Bader and Corey Burton are also in the cast.
Porchlight Entertainment produces.
