Cartoon Network has set Thursday, September 29, 6:30 PM for the premiere of its new linear series Mighty Magiswords. Building on the original 15-second series that launched last year on the CN Anything app, the new TV series follows Prohyas and Vambre, an outgoing brother and sister team of warriors for hire, who are always ready to take on any quest with their trusted and coveted collection of Magiswords that can fly, toss tomatoes, spit seeds and much more to ultimately result in a funny victory. A mobile app for the series is set to launch in the fall.
Created by Kyle A. Carrozza (The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water), the comedy series contains more than 400 pieces of original content including interactive shorts, narrative vlogs hosted by the warriors themselves and a multitude of digital games. Prohyas and Vambre will also bring their unique sense of humor as on-air hosts introducing Cartoon Network’s shows, events and more. The premiere episode, “The Mystery of Loch Mess,” follows the warriors who are sent on a mission to locate missing deliverymen only to find themselves captured as pets. Then in “Squirrelled Domination,” a rare food enthusiast sends the warriors on a mission to gather five golden acorns.
“Mighty Magiswords is custom created for the way young audiences consume media today,” said Rob Sorcher, chief content officer for Cartoon Network. “This is about how stories can be told in new ways and how a community can play together.”
The series’ guest stars include Weird Al Yankovic, Jack McBrayer, Dave Coulier, Tom Kenny and more.
Mighty Magiswords is produced at Cartoon Network Studios.
