New CGI series Trucktown gets underway

TrucktownProduction on a new CGI preschool series is underway at Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana Studio.

Trucktown, which follows the “playful adventures of a group of rough and tumble young trucks”, is being produced for the Treehouse channel for a spring 2014 broadcast.

“We’re delighted to be bringing the world of Trucktown, which has engaged millions of kids through the books, to life on screen,” says said Colin Bohm, Managing Director, Nelvana Enterprises. “The boisterous characters and rollicking action that Jon Scieszka created for the page has a proven track record, which the series will be able to introduce to even more kids and families.”

The action centers around Jack Truck and his best friends Dump Truck Dan and Max the Monster Truck and the rest of the truck gang as they roar, romp and power their way through Trucktown. This group of friends have never met a wall they couldn’t smash or a road or bridge they couldn’t build—and smash again. Filled with good old-fashioned fun, Trucktown tells big stories that capture the big personalities of the trucks that live there.

“Trucktown embraces the excitement of playing together on the playground, with a lot of noise and rambunctious fun,” said Ted Ellis, Vice President, Programming, Kids and Family. “We’re excited to add a series to the Treehouse schedule that is turbo-charged to connect with boys.”
