In the Works: Transformers Get a Fresh Toon-up

Cartoon Network Studios and Hasbro are coproducing a new Transformers series debuting in January 2008 and (hopefully) capitalizing on the buzz of this summer's upcoming live-action film. Transformers Animated will feature more humor, some never-before-seen characters, and a new premise that pits the Autobots against evil humans more often than the Decepticons.... Also per the Hollywood Reporter, Mark Burnett is teaming with the mixed martial-arts company ProElite to develop a reality series involving the combat sport.
