Our own Jay Stephens needs your help:
I’ll admit it, I’m upset. News from way up high at Cartoon Network is that we have to change the name of our animated series from ‘The Secret Saturdays’, a title that everybody I’ve ever spoken to loves (including very nearly everyone at Cartoon Network itself!), to ‘The Secret Adventures Of Zak Saturday’, which sounds remarkably similar to ‘The Sweet Life Of Zack and Cody’ or ‘The Life and Times Of Juniper Lee’. Ugh. The worst part is that the new title isn’t as good at reflecting what our show is really about… it’s like calling the Fantastic Four ‘Johnny Storm and his amazing Friends’. Please let CN know which title you like best here. Thanks.
Join me congratulating our own Jay Stephens whose in-development show with Cartoon Network has been officially picked up for 26 half-hour episodes! Here’s the skinny:
Jay Stephens has created a new comedy/action series, in which Doc, Drew and Zak Saturday are a family of world-saving adventure scientists called The Secret Saturdays. Living in a hidden base, they are part of a network of scientists who protect against all the hidden and terrifying things in this world. To The Saturdays, ordinary folktales arenâ€™t just legends — they are real-life mysteries and adventures. Traveling from the hot Gobi Desert to the icy Marianas Trench, they explore ancient temples and bottomless caves and tangle with twisted villains like the masked madman V.V. Argost and his half-human/half-giant spider.
