Cartoon Network announced its new programming for the 2010-2011 season, which includes an animated show based on DC Comics’ Young Justice.
The show is described as follows:
“In Young Justice, being a teenager means proving yourself over and over – to peers, parents, teachers, mentors and, ultimately, to yourself. But what if you’re not just a normal teenager? What if you’re a teenage super hero? Are you ready to join the ranks of the great heroes and prove you’re worthy of the Justice League? That’s exactly what the members of Young Justice – Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian and Artemis – will [find] out, whether they have what it takes to be a proven hero.”
This series is produced by Warner Bros. Animation. Sam Register (“Teen Titans,” “Ben 10,” “Batman: The Brave and the Bold”) is the executive producer. Brandon Vietti (“Batman: Under the Red Hood,” “Superman Doomsday,” “The Batman”) and Greg Weisman (“Gargoyles,” “The Spectacular Spider-Man,” “W.I.T.C.H.”) are the producers.
“There’s much more to come from DC Entertainment,” said Geoff Johns, DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer. “This is just the beginning.”
Yes, because what we need more of are teen drama shows telling how giant robots and their parents both suck.
