UK live-action short-form series Thumb Wrestling Federation: TWF begins to air in the US on Cartoon Network from today (November 3rd).
Cartoon Network has picked up the exclusive rights to broadcast TWF in the territory. Seasons two through four will run in succession during the 2008-2009 broadcast year.
The collection of high octane bouts, wrestler biogs and special features will air from Monday to Friday in the after-school position, leading directly into CN's late afternoon block.
In addition, TWF will air a full, half-hour weekly wrap-up show on Saturdays.
Announcers Dick Thompson and Colonel Cossack will also be seen multiple times each day as they introduce viewers to a number of Cartoon Network's shows via a series of promotional 'bumpers'. Information will also be available on Cartoon Network's website.
TWF is represented in the US, and globally, by Al Ovadia & Associates. Ovadia said: "I am delighted to be climbing into the ring with TWF. Kids are going to love the no holds barred thumb wrestling action."
