Canadian cartoon cable channel Teletoon ordered 13 half-hours of the comedy about the 16 year-old son of a former New York mob boss whose family now lives in a Canada as part of witness protection program.
Fugget About It was created by Nicholas Tabarrok and Willem Wennekers, before being kicked into shape by Abugov, a veteran Los Angeles sitcom writer.
The homegrown comedy emerged as a finalist among 200 submissions to the Teletoon at Night Pilot Project to tap the latest series ideas and concepts
from Canada’s animation community.
The Teletoon at Night pilots aired online and on Teletoon late night Sunday block “Fred at Night” before any season orders were handed out.
Teletoon plans to air Fugget About It on both its English and French-language cartoon channels here in fall 2012.
