Disney Channel has had the go-ahead for their first animated series in 3 years: “Fish Hooks” (working title).
The story revolves around the party guy Milo (Kyle Massey), his neurotic brother Oscar (Justin Roiland) and an overly dramatic goldfish, Bea (Chelsea Staub). They go to Freshwater High, a school at the bottom in a giant fish tank in a local pet store. The series follows their daily lives as they deal with friendships, dating and sports as well as such atypical teen issues like giant lobster attacks and school field trips to the hamster cages.
The series was created by children’s book illustrator Noah Z. Jones, developed for television by Alex Hirsch (”The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack”) and Bill Reiss (”Chowder”), executive-produced by Adam Burton (”The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy”) and directed by Carl Greenblatt and Bill Reiss.
