Created 10/19/1999 - 23:00
Kids' WB! has ordered 13 episodes of MAX STEEL, a new 3D CGI animated action-adventure half-hour series from Sony
Pictures Family Entertainment (SPFE) which is set to debut in January 2000.
Set in the fictitious suburban city of Del Oro Bay, it centers around Max
Steel, a young international secret agent who was the product of a
bio-technical accident which infused him with nano-technology giving him
bionic abilities. The teenage hi-tech hero is dedicated to protecting the
Earth by fighting the most dangerous and sinister mercenary organization,
DREAD, and its goal of world domination. Max, who may very well hold the
fate of the world in his bionically enhanced hands, lives a double life.
His friends know him as Josh McGrath, a typical college student, with a
passion for extreme sports, but he secretly travels the world battling evil
as Max Steel. The series will be completely CGI, and the cast will include
Christian Campbell as Max Steel; Jacob Vargas as Berto; Shannon Kenny as
Rachel; Lauren Tom as Laura; Chi McBride as Jefferson Smith; Ed Asner as
Chuck Marshak; and Keith Szarabajka as Mairot/Psycho. The series is
executive produced by Richard Raynis (MEN IN BLACK, GODZILLA). Jeff Kline
(MEN IN BLACK, GODZILLA, JUMANJI) serves as co-executive producer and Greg
Weisman (GARGOYLES) is producer. The show will be produced and animated by
Sony Pictures Family Entertainment for Kids' WB!
