The Rhythm Continues with the Second Season of Class of 3000

New Season Thursday, June 7, at 7 p.m. (ET, PT) Following a Sing-a-Long Musical Marathon on Cartoon Network

A new season of Class of 3000, the critically-acclaimed Cartoon Network original series from creators and executive producers Andr� �3000� Benjamin (OutKast) and Tom Lynch (Romeo!), starts Thursday, June 7, at 7 p.m. (ET, PT), following a six-and-a-half-hour marathon of the series' first season. Andr� Benjamin stars as the voice of superstar Sunny Bridges, a music teacher at a prestigious performing arts school, and will continue to write a new song for each episode.

During the marathon that airs Thursday, June 7, 12:30 p.m.-7 p.m. (ET, PT), Andr� Benjamin will provide commentary on the songs and music videos that air within each episode. Viewers will also be able to follow the on screen lyrics and sing along to each original song karaoke-style. Immediately following the marathon is an all-new episode that kicks off the series' second season. New episodes will continue to air Thursday nights at 7 p.m. (ET, PT).

Class of 3000 premiered in November 2006 and garnered one of the network's highest rated original series debuts. Set to the backdrop of Atlanta, the series follows international music star Sunny Bridges, who gave up his flourishing music career to teach a group of gifted musical prodigies at his alma mater, the Westley School for the Performing Arts.

Benjamin makes production and writing contributions, as well as voice, music and visual direction for the series and its original music videos. In addition to Benjamin as the voice of Sunny Bridges, other cast members include Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants, Camp Lazlo), Phil LaMarr (Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Justice League, Samurai Jack), Crystal Scales (Static Shock, The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius), Jennifer Hale (Samurai Jack, The Powerpuff Girls), Janice Kawaye (Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi) and Jeff Glen Bennett (Johnny Bravo, Camp Lazlo).

Class of 3000 is produced by Cartoon Network Studios in association with the Tom Lynch Co. and Benjamin's production company, Moxie. Thomas W. Lynch and Andr� �3000� Benjamin are the executive producers of Class of 3000. Among the guest art directors for the second season are two-time Academy Award nominated artist Bill Plympton, world-renowned cartoonist and writer Sergio Aragon�s and the Academy Award-winning animator John Canemaker. Twelve half-hours and a one-hour premiere have been produced at Cartoon Network Studios in Burbank, Calif., with 13 more half-hours in production.

Andr� Benjamin is best known as one-half of the Grammy-winning musical group OutKast. His acting career includes roles in the upcoming feature films Semi-Pro, starring Will Ferrell and Battle in Seattle due out later this year co-starring Charlize Theron. He has also starred in the feature films Idlewild; Four Brothers, starring Mark Wahlberg; Be Cool, starring John Travolta; and Hollywood Homicide, featuring Harrison Ford. He also lent his voice to the character Elwyn in the live-action, animation film Charlotte's Web. Moxie, his Atlanta-based production company, develops original feature films as well as episodic television.

Tom Lynch has been an innovator in the field of kids, tween and teen programming for the past 20 years. His groundbreaking debut series, KIDS Incorporated, was the first variety show for youngsters, and his series The Secret World of Alex Mack was both the first series created for tweens and the first show to feature a tween girl as its central character. Since then, Lynch has continued to blaze new trails with such original programs as the Emmy-nominated Scout's Safari (filmed in South Africa) and Romeo!, starring the real life musician Romeo and his father, music mogul Master P.
