Turner Broadcasting has picked up new animated TV series Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, a co-production between DHX Media and Sony Pictures Animation, for its Boomerang channel across EMEA, APAC and Latin America.

Commissioned by Teletoon in Canada, the 26 x 22-minutes series is based on Sony Pictures Animation’s animated feature films Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (2009) and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 (2013). Both films were distributed by Columbia Pictures and grossed a combined US$510 million at the box office.

As for the TV series, it is being produced at DHX’s animation studio in Vancouver, Canada. DHX also handles all global TV, L&M and non-US home entertainment right for the series, while Sony will distribute home entertainment in the US.

The TV series will serve as a prequel to the film franchise, taking place before the giant food fell from the sky. Protagonist Flint Lockwood is back as a unique tween who suffers from NFD (non-fish-related dreams). He wants to be a serious scientist whose inventions don’t always end in disaster. The rest of the cast from the movies also returns, including Flint’s father Tim, sidekick Steve the monkey and Mayor Shelbourne.
