TORONTO (October 17, 2007) - Joe Sherman, director of Cookie Jar Entertainment's hit series, "Johnny Test", has won a Gemini Award for Best Direction in a Children's or Youth Program or Series. This is Sherman's first Gemini.
"It's nice to have our show recognized by someone other than 12-year-old boys! It's a funny, wacky and goofy cartoon show - the kind we all grew up with," said Sherman. "It's a pleasure to work on a show with an enormously talented team including the show's creator, Scott Fellows, and Cookie Jar Entertainment."
"We are pleased that Joe's great work on 'Johnny Test' has been recognized with this prestigious award," said Pam Slavin, VP, Head of Production for Cookie Jar Entertainment. "We are thrilled by this honor and look forward to Joe's and the show's continued success in Canada and around the world."

"Johnny Test" chronicles the adventures of a fearless 11-year-old boy, his genetically engineered super dog Dukey and his 13 year-old twin-teen-prodigy-nuclear-scientist-inventor sisters, Susan and Mary, who use Johnny as their guinea pig for their out-of-this-world scientific experiments. With his carefree attitude, Johnny is always up for an adventure as long as Dukey can come along.
