Turner launched their Boomerang Channel in Latin America with "Flight 29 Down."
Produced by Stan Rogow ("Lizzie Maguire"), Shauna Shapiro Jackson & David Jackson with Discovery Kids.
FLIGHT 29 DOWN -- best described as"LOST for Kids" -- is a live-action series (30 x 22) that follows the adventures of young castaways who are stranded on a South Pacific island after their Plane crashes on its way to a "once in a lifetime" eco-camping adventure.
Far from home and with little hope of rescue, these kids must not only struggle to survive the dangers of a wild, tropical paradise, they will also face the challenge of figuring out how to get along with each other. It's a toss up as to which will be more difficult.
Shot on location in Hawaii, FLIGHT 29 DOWN stars CORBIN BLEU ("High School Musical") and was created for DISCOVERY KIDS/ THE HUB and aired in the U.S. on NBC.
Recognition from the Young Artists Awards whose founder is a member of the Foreign Press Association and a member of the Golden Globes.
