Cartoon Network has announced that it will launch its new action series ‘The Justirisers’ on the action block Toonami on March 7. The channel has roped in Shankar Mahadevan to sing the title track of this series. The half-hour show will be telecast on weekdays in the 6 pm slot.
Monica Tata, Turner International India Vice-president, Advertising sales & Networks, India and South Asia, said, “We are very pleased that a renowned artiste like Shankar Mahadevan has sung the title track of our new show ‘The Justirisers’. This is the first time that he has sung for a children’s’ network and we are proud that he partnered with us.”
Mahadevan is excited about the venture. He said he was looking forward to the children’s responses across the country. Besides English, the track will have three versions -- Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
Talking about the new series, Tata commented, “Cartoon Network constantly looks at trends across age and peer groups in various regions, with an aim to provide the ‘best in class’ programming for kids across India. While the Toonami block has been extremely popular in India, we have strived to keep it fresh and appealing with the latest action shows such as Pokemon, Gransazers, Digimon and now, The Justirisers, a very popular series internationally, to this block. We are confident that kids will love this exciting action show along with its title tracks created especially for India.”
