Seth Green is executive producing an animated series greenlighted for the Cartoon Network.
The cable channel has ordered 20 episodes of the untitled project, a stop-motion cartoon that depicts iconic toys acting out satirical vignettes. For instance, superhero action figures could be shown struggling to co-exist in a scenario lampooning MTV's "The Real World."
"It's like 'Saturday Night Live' with toys instead of actors," Green said. "We're ecstatic to be doing it with the Cartoon Network."
Green, whose movie and TV credits range from "Party Monster" to "Greg the Bunny," created and produced the series with Matthew Senreich, editorial director of magazine publisher Wizard Entertainment.
The series is scheduled to join Cartoon's late-night animation block Adult Swim in October. Cartoon parent company Turner Broadcasting plans to unveil the series at an upfront presentation Thursday for Adult Swim.
Green and Senreich will write the series with Doug Goldstein and Tom Roots. "We've been working together for a long time and like to play with toys," Senreich said. "We'll bring toys to life in a crazy, warped way."
The pair most recently collaborated on the Internet-based entertainment series "Sweet J Presents," on Sony's Screenblast.com.
Green also provides the voice of one of the characters on "Family Guy," the former Fox series that airs in reruns on Cartoon. He next appears in Paramount's "Without a Paddle."
Green is repped by UTA. His manager is Trice Koopman of Koopman Management and his sttorney is David Weber of Offer, Weber and Dern. (Item courtesy of THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER)
