Turner’s Cartoon Network has ordered Elliott from Earth, a 20 x 11 minute original animated series from the UK-based makers of the network’s award-winning series The Amazing World of Gumball.
The sci-fi sitcom follows the adventures of a human boy who ends up living on a spaceship with aliens from all over the universe.
Expected to begin production this September, Elliott from Earth is created by ex-Gumball scriptwriter and composition supervisor Guillaume Cassuto, alongside Gumball‘s scriptwriting, storyboarding and editing team. The series is also the newest Cartoon Network original to produced out of the net’s EMEA hub.
Gumball, which is now in its sixth season, was recently the only triple winner at the 2018 British Animation Awards, notching wins in the Best Children’s Series, Voice Performance and Children’s Choice categories.
