YOUNG JUSTICE, FIREBREATHER ON CARTOON NETWORK

Cartoon Network formally announced a Young Justice animated series at its upfront presentation on Wednesday.

Here's how the show is described:

"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 found out, whether they have what it takes to be a proven hero. This all-new series is produced by Warner Bros. Animation and based upon characters from DC Comics."

Sam Register is the executive producer. Brandon Vietti and Greg Weisman are the producers.

In other news from the upfront presentation:

* Firebreather is on the network's schedule as a "soon-to-debut" movie.

Here's how the project is described:

"Cartoon Network's first original all-CG animation adventure presents Duncan Rosenblatt, a rather typical, awkward high school kid, except that his dad is a fire-breathing monster who tells Duncan that he is destined to protect the earth."

Firebreather is created and co-executive-produced by Phil Hester, co-executive-produced by Andy Kuhn and executive-produced by Julia Pistor.

Jim Krieg is the the writer, with Peter Chung directing.

* MAD is an animated sketch comedy series based on the magazine published by DC Comics.

Alfred E. Neuman and Spy vs. Spy will appear. Register is executive producing, with Kevin Shinick and Mark Marek producing.

* Batman: The Brave and the Bold and Star Wars: The Clone Wars are listed as returning series. Thirteen additional episodes of Batman have been ordered.

* Marvel's The Super Hero Squad Show, which is currently in production on Season 2, was not listed among the returning series.

According to a source, the show will return to Cartoon Network, but has not been scheduled yet.
