Cartoon Network plans five original new shows in 2007, including Santo (working title) based on the legend of the real-life iconic wrestling hero Santo, El Enmascarado de Plata (the silver masked man); Chowder, which centers around a young, aspiring chef who struggles not to eat everything in sight; The Secret Saturdays, a comedy-action series about a family of super-scientists; The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack about a boy who lives inside a whale and sets sail with an old pirate for Candied Island; and a series based on Re-Animated to debut this summer. In addition, Class of 3000 has been greenlit for its second season. The network also showed a sneak peek of its Massively Multi-Player Game due 2008, and introduced a new after-school franchise called Master Control, allowing kids to choose what they want to watch starting in late summer. Other initiatives: A Ben 10 live-action movie and Cartoon Network Invaded, a special event in May when Bloo from Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends ends up letting loose aliens on Earth and in Cartoon Network original series. Every Friday in May, an alien will arrive in a new episode, culminating with an alien invasion marathon on Memorial Day. Another multimedia event, “Props,” celebrates inspirational, real-world kids who demonstrate exceptional talent, commitment, and accomplishment in a single area of expertise, such as a sport, a musical instrument, gaming, or a hobby. The company is creating CallToons, a new mobile application that integrates smart technology with entertainment.
