Cartoon Network will pick up where original movieRe-Animated left off when it debuts new live-action series Out of Jimmy's Head.

Dominic Janes (Alex Taggart on ER, Wild Hogs) returns as 12-year-old Jimmy Roberts, who, while visiting the famous Gollyworld Park, has an accident with the park trolley that requires an emergency brain transplant. Janes is joined by Jon Kent Ethridge II(Last Days of Summer) as Craig, Jimmy's best friend, and Tinashe Kashingwe(The Polar Express) as Robin, Jimmy's crush.

“With the success of the movie last year, we felt that this was the perfect project to launch Cartoon Network into a series featuring live-action characters," senior vice president of programming and development Michael Ouweleen said in a prepared statement. "The series will focus on Jimmy and his everyday life at school, which also includes these outrageous animated characters created in the true spirit of Cartoon Network.”
