Holy shit , it seems like forever ago when we first wrote about the new animated series coming from Comedy Central called TripTank but now we know its coming Fall 2013 for about an 8-episode run. For those who might not remember TripTank is a new series being executive produced by ShadowMachine’s Alex Bulkley and Corey Campodonico (Robot Chicken, Moral Orel) and in a recent press release(which you can check out after the jump) the new dynamic duo promise to utilize different animation types like CGI, 2D, and stop motion. As mentioned, check out the press release after the jump as it announces already content creators such as Bob Odenkirk, Larry David, Zach Galafianakis, Kumail Nanjiani, Brett Gelman and Kyle Kinane. HADOOUUUUUUKEN!
COMEDY CENTRAL has ordered “Triptank,” a weekly, half-hour series showcasing a wide range of fast-paced, hard-hitting animated shorts delivered in a variety of animation styles, it was announced today by Kent Alterman, Head of Original Programming and Production, COMEDY CENTRAL. Executive produced by ShadowMachine’s Alex Bulkley and Corey Campodonico (“Robot Chicken,” “Moral Orel”), “Triptank” is slated to premiere eight episodes next fall.
“When we did the pilot, they assured me it would be literally animated…and it was,” said Alterman. “We will do the same for the series.”
“Triptank is the ultimate playground for comedy writers and animators,” said Bulkley and Campodonico. “We’re thrilled to be working with the great team at Comedy Central.”
