I thought Level Up was just a one off made for TV movie. Today I
learned that it is going to be an actual regular series on Cartoon
Network?

Don't they remember what happened the last time they went with live
action shows? Their ratings tanked.

So why curse us with yet another live action show?

As I recall, for reasons known only to the Gods, CN's parent company
has someone in charge of CN who DOESN'T LIKE CARTOONS, and anime in
particular -- thus the death of Toonami, their most popular block of
shows ever, and the move towards live action.

Did you see the horrible pilot? They kept promoting the series during
the pilot movie.

It's called a Thinly Disguised Pilot.

Lousy marketing will do that. This is also part of why Symbionic
Titan was doomed. See below.

This one can be marketed, it fits their "zany" programing. Paul
Dini explains here why Tower Prep, Unnatural History as well as
Symbionic Titan eventually died:
