I’m bored. Thought I’d C&P some old news from enterCloud9.com
A New Tomorrow is underway! Casting is now occurring for The Tribe sequel “A New Tomorrow” with production crews being recruited and pre-production commencing on March 21st 2005. Lots of kids have been auditioning over the past two weeks and some of the core cast have already been selected.
Shooting will start in May which means that the Tribe sequel will be available for transmission around October 2005. The series is currently scheduled to air around that time on Channel FIVE in the UK and Network Seven in Australia.
Cloud 9’s distributors, Southern Star, will be discusing the Tribe sequel “The New Tomorrow” with broadcasters at the MIP television festival in Cannes in mid April.
 The MIP festival is on now, from 11th till 15th April… Which probably explains why Tribeworld hasn’t been updated?… Pfft!
Cloud 9 to Produce Sequel Series to The Tribe
WELLINGTON, March 22: Following commissions from Australia’s Seven Network and U.K.’s FIVE, Cloud 9 has greenlit The New Tomorrow, a 26×30 sequel to tween series The Tribe. Global distribution rights will be handled by Southern Star International.
The sci-fi adventure series is currently at script stage, with production scheduled to start in April and delivery due from September 2005. The series will be filmed and produced by Cloud 9 in Australasia.
“The New Tomorrow interweaves a range of provocative social and environmental issues, and a range of elements which children can relate to–reflecting their young lives–in a very entertaining way,” said Raymond Thompson, Cloud 9’s founder/chairman and the program’s creator/writer. “We are delighted to have the support of Janine Faithfull from the Seven Network and Nick Wilson from Five, and we are confident that our international distribution partner, Southern Star International, will allow us to extend The Tribe franchise to a new generation of young fans around the world.’’
The New Tomorrow starts from the same premise as The Tribe–a world with no adults in which children have to re-create their own society–and tackles similar themes of survival, ambition, friendship and loyalty. However, it is aimed at a younger audience, 8-12 year olds, and has a new cast.
Added Southern Star International CEO Catherine Payne, “The New Tomorrow has strong potential based on the fantastic international success of The Tribe, which has been licensed to over 40 broadcasters worldwide.”
