CFB Detective (or College Football Detective) just leaked its first, extremely brief, trailer – and I gotta say we’re excited.
As a huge college football fan, I thoroughly enjoy that the two main detective characters are named after famous head coaches Houston Nutt and Gene Chizik, as well as the fact that the show’s cast is made up of college football writers, bloggers, and podcasters.
Produced by Charles Evans and David Harris, the show follows the detectives as they track down a bad guy named Yellow Hat who is killing college mascots. It is loosely based (according to the show’s site, “super loose, like Bobby Petrino loose,”) on HBO’s True Detective. They promise it will be the greatest animated college football detective show of all time, and there’s about a hundred-percent chance of that being true.
The first season will consist of eight YouTube episodes that will eventually be available on DVD. However, it isn’t expected anytime soon; they still need to run a Kickstarter campaign, and that doesn’t even begin until next Monday, August 18th.
But if you check out the trailer, you’ll see why it would be a good idea to stay tuned.
