Last year, CW Seed premiered an online animated comedy entitled Gallery Mallory, but despite the fact that the series showed a BUNCH of promise, we’ve only seen eight episodes and a name change since.
Thankfully, DC Comics is hopefully here to fix all of that, because announced yesterday is a brand-new animated series set in the world of the live-action adapted series’ The Flash and Green Arrow. The CW Seed exclusive is called ‘Vixen’, the superhero alter ego of Mari Jiwe McCabe, whom has the power to take on the abilities of any one animal at a time thanks to a mystical totem.
The series is set to premier in Fall 2015, but a bunch of questions still remains. CW Seed’s initial experiment was to incubate TV shows into eventual full season pickups on CW…does that still remain the case here? If so, this could change the animated landscape on network television, as right now comedy comprises of 95% of all animated television which is a shame when you consider that cable dramas are taking over television.
No word yet on a premier date nor voice cast, but this could be a game-changer for TV animation if done right.
