The Cabinet

Here’s the official description of The Cabinet from the press release:

“In this vibrant, tongue-in-cheek adventure series, atypical teen Avani and midwestern jock Trent teleport across a post-Cold War landscape to collect bizarre relics. Why? Well, because they need to summon the arcane powers of a resplendent 17th-century cabinet to fix a teeny-tiny mistake the last time Avani used it…unleashing an ancient evil from its prison and accidentally slaughtering her parents.”

And here are some quotes from co-creators Hart and Ebeltoft:

David and I had one goal when creating The Cabinet — cooking up a character-driven supernatural adventure that made us laugh every single day,” said Hart. “We challenged ourselves to make the absurd believable. The result became a story with villainous foot soldiers who wear medieval tunics with Reebok Pumps, a 6’7” sidekick who loves advanced algebra as much as playing college football, and an arcane instruction manual that looks like it was designed by Lisa Frank.

“Jordan and I always knew the fabric would be stitched and held together by Avani, our Indian American heroine,” said Ebeltoft. “We wanted a character that was strong, relatable, and inclusive, but could also be a gutsy badass when push comes to shove. While nurturing Avani’s spirit and nature, we drew heavily from my familial well, where my wife inspired everything from Avani’s look, to her passion, to her compassionate kick-assery.”
