Cartoon Network will premiere its brand-new TV series Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs on March 6 at 5:30 p.m. (ET/PT). The TV series has been produced by DHX Media and Sony Pictures Animation in association with Corus Entertainment.
The comedy series is based on Sony Pictures Animation’s 2009 animated feature comedy hit Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and its 2013 sequel Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, both of which were global hits.
The series takes place before giant food rains down on Swallow Falls. Sardines are still the driving force behind the town’s booming economy. Children’s favourite character Flint Lockwood returns as a teenager trying to change the world with one invention at a time.
Lucky for him, his best friend and aspiring meteorologist Sam Sparks is there to lend him a hand. All of the great characters from the film return with the series. They include Flint’s dad, Tim; Flint’s lab assistant, Steve the monkey; Earl, the school’s busiest teacher; Manny, the head of the school’s audiovisual department; Brent, the local teenage celebrity and captain of the mascot team; and Mayor Shelbourne, who wins every election with a pro-sardine platform and more.
