Cartoon Network acquires ‘Total Drama Island’ spin-off

Cake Distribution has sold Total Drama Action, the spin-off to Total Drama Island, to Cartoon Network. Total Drama Island has been a huge hit on Cartoon Network’s Thursday night line-up and has developed a huge following both on-air and online.

Viewers on Total Drama Island’s Web site have created more than two million unique avatars within three months of the series premiere.

Total Drama Action picks up where Total Drama Island left off and takes 15 of the original contestants to a new location — a deserted film studio lot. New to the concept will be a number of talk-show episodes where former contestants and fans comment on the competition. Total Drama Action is currently in production and premieres in 2009.
