The NBA and Turner Broadcasting, the company that owns TNT, are planning to expand the NBA’s programming reach to younger audiences. Because children are our future unless we stop them.
Cartoon Network is partnering with the NBA to develop basketball-themed programming, with one series already in development.
Expanding Cartoon parent company Turner’s 25-year-old relationship with the sports organization, the new arrangement calls for the network to create new content on-air, online and for mobile devices. First in the pipeline is a shortform series called “My Dad’s a Pro,” following the children of NBA players that will debut at the start of the NBA season this fall.
I guess show concepts like Daddy’s Tattoo Says He Loves Me, Daddy And That Girl With The Big Boobies Are Just Friends, and Daddy’s Only Going To Jail Because He Majored In Criminal Justice In College won’t be getting onto CN anytime soon. It’s too bad, because a sports-themed Adult Swim show would be quite awesome. Like The Harlem Globetrotters gang-banging Velma and Daphne from Scooby-Doo awesome. And they would have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn’t for those lousy kids. Kids ruin everything.
