Nick Cannon is supposed to be easing up on his workload for his own personal health, but that hasn’t stopped him from selling a teen sketch comedy series to the Cartoon Network.


The Cartoon Network. Not Nickelodeon, which had one of its earliest hits with You Can’t Do That on Television¬†(and also gave Cannon his big break as a teen-aged sketch comedian with All That), but the Cartoon Network has signed on for a live-action sketch comedy series starring kids/teens. It’s not titled yet. But it does have a cast assembled, including¬†Jeremy Shada, Shameik Moore, Brandon Soo Hoo, Shauna Case and Chanelle Peloso.

Quotes from the press release:

“Nick Cannon has created a contemporary take on sketch comedy that will launch the next generation of Cartoon Network stars,” said Rob Sorcher, chief content officer for Cartoon Network.

Cannon added: “Cartoon Network is the absolute best home for this series and I am thrilled to be working with them. As someone who was given an opportunity in this business at a very young age, I am always looking for ways to help shine the spotlight on up and coming young comedic talent and this show is the perfect platform for these future stars.”
