The Secret Saturdays Fact SheetPremiere:
The Secret Saturdays is a new original series from Cartoon Network slated to air Friday nights in fall 2008.
In the new animated, comedy-action series created by Jay Stephens, Doc, Drew and Zak Saturday are a family of world-saving adventure scientists called The Secret Saturdays. They live in a hidden base and are part of a network of scientists who protect against all the underlying evil in the world. To the Saturdays, ordinary folk-tales aren’t just legends, but real-life mysteries and adventures.
Traveling from the Gobi Desert to the Marianas Trench, the Saturdays explore ancient temples and bottomless caves and tangle with twisted villains, like madman V.V. Argost who hides his evil plans under the ruse of his popular television show Weird World. The Saturdays’ adventures also allow them to scour the globe in search of cryptids, mysterious creatures that live undercover all over the world. But it’s not always about protecting the cryptids. Sometimes Doc, Drew and Zak must protect the world from a few of the more dangerous creatures.
But aside from their adventures, at the end of the day the Saturdays, along with their hyper exotic pets Fiskerton, Komodo and Zon, are just a loving bunch, trying to work through everyday family matters and squabbles.
Twenty-six episodes of The Secret Saturdays are currently in production at Porchlight Entertainment in Los Angeles, Calif. The series is from creator Jay Stephens and producer Fred Schaefer.
The Secret Saturdays’ creator, Jay Stephens, began his career creating independent comic books like Atomic City Tales, The Land of Nod and Jetcat Clubhouse, which he later made into an animated short. The short was featured in the Nickelodeon animated series KaBlam and not only helped propel a transition into animation, but earned Stephens an Annie Award nomination. Stephens has also won two Daytime Emmy® Awards for his international animated hit series Tutenstein on NBC and Discovery Kids.
