We've grown accustomed to projects from the Sundance Film Festival showing up on HBO, PBS and Netflix, but one of this year's short films will be transitioning to the Cartoon Network.
Cartoon Network said this week it would develop "Summer Camp Island," based on the original short created by Julia Pott that screened as part of Sundance's Animated Short Films category, into a series and continue unfolding the mysteries that Oscar and his best friend, Hedgehog, encounter at a magical summer camp. "Summer Camp Island" is produced by Cartoon Network Studios and is slated to debut next year.
"'Summer Camp Island' is a great example of the kind of creativity generated by our acclaimed studio shorts program," said Rob Sorcher, Cartoon Network chief content officer. "We are all wanting to spend summers inside this timeless and magical world captured by Julia's signature warmth and inventiveness."
