Level Up!

We’ve got big news to break the over half a year of no updates.  Matt and I are now staff writers on the TV show Level Up- a new live-action series from Cartoon Network.  And you all thought we were just laying around eating Cheetohs and using our Cintiqs as doorstops the whole time.  Wrong!  Well, the Cheetohs part is kinda true.

From the Level Up TV Movie

The show isn’t on the air yet, but I’ll give you a little background.  Level Up is comedy/action TV show about four friends who must battle monsters that are leaking out of their favorite video game and into the real world.  Each week they have to deal with a villainous creature, or help a video game character who’s stranded IRL, all while tackling everyday high school stuffs.  The premise is right up the nerdy alley Matt and I hang out in.

Within a week of getting this job, Matt and I were hauling ass across America in a Honda Civic I permanently borrowed from my sister; moving our lives from Astoria, Queens to Los Angeles, Los Angeles.  It was a bummer to leave New York, but the show tons of fun and everyone involved is super talented.  Like I said, it has yet to air; everything is still in production.  However at some point in the near days of future past, Cartoon Network will be rolling out a Level Up TV movie followed by a hot stack of half hour episodes.  So check back for updates on when you can watch it.

    Please let me know when the pilot airs — my daughter is “kissing girl” — the original director thought it would be funny to continue each episode where she would be in some strange place — monsters appear — little cameos. Then we heard the director had been replaced.

    Good luck guys — great break for you!!!

    Congratulations, guys. I’m a writer in Atlanta, but I was also one of the coaches in the pilot movie. I’m the one on the scooter who calls the kids inside after Angie confronts the guys.
