TORONTO, June 19, 2013 /CNW/ - The Camp Director is a monster, the lake
is called Ickygloomy and the oatmeal has a life of its own. But in the
eyes of a kid, Camp Lakebottom is the best camp ever! TELETOON is proud
to present the world broadcast premiere of its latest original series, Camp Lakebottom, on Thursday, July 4 at 6:30 p.m. ET/PT, during the Can't Miss Thursdays programming block.
Camp Lakebottom recounts the adventures of 12-year-old prankster McGee and his summer at
the most dangerous - and exciting - summer camp in the world. The
cabins are run down, the lake is toxic, the forest creatures are
mutants and the counsellors are a real creep show, but McGee and his
pals, Gretchen and Squirt, are having the time of their lives. The only
thing they could do without is that snooty kid, Buttsquat, from the
squeaky clean rival camp across the lake.
"Camp Lakebottom is the ultimate summer series for kids, complete with gross-out humour,
plenty of pranks and a good amount of heart. We're thrilled to be
premiering it as part of our Can't Miss Thursdays lineup this summer," said Alan Gregg, Director, Original Content,
TELETOON Canada Inc.
Produced for TELETOON by 9 Story Entertainment, Camp Lakebottom is created by Betsy McGowen and Eric Jacobson. Executive Producers are
Vince Commisso, Steve Jarosz, Kevin Gillis, Betsy McGowen and Eric
Jacobson. Season one consists of 13 half-hour episodes.
In addition to new episodes premiering every Thursday at 6:30 p.m. ET/PT
throughout the summer, Camp Lakebottom will air Friday mornings at 9:30 a.m. ET/PT, during TELETOON's special
summer lineup, Camp TELETOON, airing weekday mornings from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. ET/PT.
