IGPX -- a co-production between Cartoon, Japanese animation studio Production I.G and Bandai Entertainment Inc. -- marks the first original series to be produced for Cartoon’s “Toonami” action block, the network said.

The series is centered around the “Immortal Grand Prix” in the year 2048, the world’s most popular sport, and the high-tech fighting machines, driven by humans, which race at speeds exceeding 350 miles per hour.
