Cartoon Network has greenlit a new production: Elliott from Earth, which it touts is being produced by the same U.K.-based team that made The Amazing World of Gumball.
Created by Guillaume Cassuto, a Gumball scriptwriter and composition supervisor, Elliott from Earth is a sci-fi sitcom that follows Elliott, a human boy who finds himself living on a spaceship full of aliens from around the universe (not to mention a dinosaur, too). The network describes it as a funny and warm-hearted show about “finding your place in the world.”
Twenty 11-minute episodes have been ordered. Production is set to begin in September 2018 out of the network’s EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa) hub in London. The show will employ many of the same crew members from The Amazing World of Gumball, including writers, storyboard artists, and editors who worked on that earlier series in London.
