Disney XD has provided CBR with the exclusive first look at the opening credits for Big City Greens, the upcoming animated series by comics creators (and brothers) Chris and Shane Houghton.
Announced in May 2016 under its previous title, Country Club, the series centers on Cricket Green, a mischievous and optimistic country boy who moves to the big city with his wildly out of place family. Cricket’s curiosity and enthusiasm lead his family on epic fish-out-of-water adventures and endear the Greens to their new urbanite neighbors.
Big City Greens follows Cricket Green, a mischievous and optimistic country boy who just moved to the big city. His curiosity and enthusiasm will lead him and his wildly out of place family on epic journeys, perilous escapes, and into the hearts of his new neighbors.
Emmy Award-winning director Rob Renzetti (Gravity Falls) serves as executive producer alongside the Houghtons.
Writers on Nicktoons' Harvey Beaks, the Houghton brothers are perhaps best known in comics circles for their all-ages supernatural Western Reed Gunther, published by Image Comics. Shane Houghton has written stories for Peanuts, The Simpsons' Treehouse of Horror and Casper's Scare School, while Chris Houghton has contributed to The Simpsons, Adventure Time and Kung Fu Panda comics, as well as Disney's Gravity Falls.
Big City Greens is scheduled to premiere in 2018 on Disney XD.
