The premiere of television game show "Survivor" in May 2000, signaled the the arrival of British-born producer, Mark Burnett.

Since then, Burnett has gone on to produce "The Apprentice", "Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?", and "The Voice". His anticipated 10-hour miniseries "The Bible" is set to air in 2013 on The History Channel.

For a new digital project, Burnett has teamed up with CliffsNotes, AOL, and Coalition Films to create a comedic series based on CliffsNotes Literature Guides.

Burnett hopes the animated shorts will help make classic books more accessible to teens.
