(London) � Cake Distribution today announced the sale of FRESH TV's TOTAL DRAMA ACTION, the spinoff to TOTAL DRAMA ISLAND (TDI), to Cartoon Network U.S. TDI has quickly established itself as a hit on Cartoon Network's Thursday night line-up and has developed a substantial following both on-air and on-line. Viewers on the program's interactive Web site have created over two million unique avatars within three months of the series premiere.

"We were very excited when Cartoon Network took the plunge in launching this mould-breaking show," said Ed Galton, managing director of Cake Distribution. "The creators and producers at FRESH TV have found such a natural continuation for the series, and we are thrilled that Cartoon Network has come on board to further build this success story with us."

TOTAL DRAMA ACTION picks up where TOTAL DRAMA ISLAND left off and takes 15 of the original contestants to a new location - a deserted film studio lot. Here our contestants will be exposed to new challenges with the chance to win an even bigger prize. New to the concept will be a number of talk-show episodes where former contestants and fans comment on the competition. TOTAL DRAMA ACTION was created by FRESH TV's Tom McGillis and Jennifer Pertsch and is commissioned by TELETOON Canada. TOTAL DRAMA ACTION is currently in production and premiers in 2009.
