Production

Paul Dini wrote the first episode of Tower Prep, and Cartoon Network picked up the series as part of their initiative to develop live action programming for a family audience The pilot was shot in 2009, and full production of the first season began in 2010 in British Columbia

Former X-Files writer Glen Morgan was hired as executive producer and showrunner, joined by a writing team including Dini, Glen's brother Darin Morgan, Riley Stearns, Aury Wallington, Jeff Eckerle and Marilyn Osborn Discussing his influences in creating the show, Dini states, "I thought about incidents when I was a kid I went to a prep school, and I leaned back on my feelings of what it was like at the time – the strangeness and the alienation" From the start, the writers' goals were to create a story that did not talk down to kids, and to write natural dialogue, avoiding unrealistic slang and catch phrases Many of the characters shift between being perceived as heroes or villains, because, Dini explains, ", your allegiances are switched and relationships change To a degree, Tower Prep is a real high school It's just that the elements are blown out of proportion and into caricature"

The promotion for the series began with a fictional storyline, in which Cartoon Network published vlogs from the four main characters Prior to the series premiere, a sneak peek of the show was released for free download on the iTunes Store featuring half of the first episode To promote the premiere, the network announced a giveaway of 1,000 iPod Touch devices that would take place during the show The iPod Touch strongly resembled the PDA devices from the series The song "Unstoppable" by Foxy Shazam was used in network promos and in the episode "Trust"

The last two episodes of the first season aired on December 28, 2010 In October 2011, Cartoon network removed all Tower Prep content from its website In December 2011, Paul Dini announced that the series would not return for a second season

Cancellation

In January 2013, Paul Dini revealed that Cartoon Network never gave him an answer for the cancellation of the series, though he speculated on Kevin Smith's Fatman on Batman podcast that an increased young female viewership over the network's young male target was a principal cause He also added that he intended for the series to run for 'five seasons' and had plans for season two to air in February, 2011 Dini expressed interest in writing season three where he had planned for Ian to be the leader of the gnomes

Reception

Critical reception
