Grojband Rocks the TELETOON Lineup this Fall

(Toronto, Ontario – August 15, 2013) – What do you get when you combine wicked tunes, over-the-top teen angst and epic sibling rivalry? Grojband, a brand new TELETOON Original Series premiering on Thursday, September 5 at 7 p.m. ET/PT, during the Can’t Miss Thursdays programming block.
In this half-hour series, 12-year-old Corey Riffin starts a garage band with his three best friends and quickly realizes that their band sucks – like, a lot. It’s not their music or ever-changing image that’s the problem. It’s Corey’s lack of lyrics. He just can't think of anything cool to write about, until Core finds his older sister Trina’s diary, which is full of teen angst. Corey and the band “secretly” use her latest diary entry as lyrics to their new tune and the result is pure awesomeness. The only problem is that Trina’s a total witch and can’t stand the thought of her little brother’s garbage band becoming more popular than her. But luckily Corey always knows just what to do to drive Trina to her diary and give the band the one thing they’re missing … words.
“Grojband is fast-paced, hilarious and relatable. Factor in the catchy original songs featured in every episode and it has all the makings of an instant viewer favourite,” said Alan Gregg, Director, Original Content, TELETOON Canada Inc.
Produced for TELETOON by Fresh TV Inc., in association with FremantleMedia Enterprises, Grojband is created by Todd Kauffman and Mark Thornton.
