Everyone's going crazy for miniseries lately -- even Cartoon Network. In an exciting development on the animated front, the channel has announced the development of its first-ever event miniseries, "Over the Garden Wall." Created by Patrick McHale, known for his work on the network's odd and wonderful hit "Adventure Time," the new 10-part series packs a rock star roster of vocal talent that includes Elijah Wood ("Lord of the Rings"), Collin Dean ("The War at Home") and Melanie Lynskey ("Happy Christmas").

The miniseries, a comedy/fantasy, follows two brothers trying to find their way home as they travel across a mysterious land, aided by a wise Woodsman who gives them directions and a bluebird named Beatrice. It's based on McHale's Cartoon Network Studios' short "Tome Of The Unknown," which also featured Wood's voice acting. The series will feature a soundtrack full of Americana-influenced original songs. McHale wrote the songs  "Oh Marceline," "Dream of Love," and "Something Special" for "Adventure Time." "Over The Garden Wall" is produced by Cartoon Network Studios, and given McHale's penchant for whimsical insanity, here's guessing we're in for a wild ride.
