Von Miller Attached To “Mars Martians” Animated Comedy

Finally, an open position for Terrell Owens has finally come about.

Von Miller is teaming up with OBB pictures on a half-hour animated comedy called Mars Martians. The duo is said to be shopping the series and Deadline has the scoop on the overall premise of the series:

Mars Martians will follow Byron Bittman (voiced by Von Miller), the son of a beloved NFL superstar who has spent his life suffering under the expectation created by his father’s legacy and the beginning of his career plagued by disappointing production, fights with teammates, and embarrassing off-the-field issues. Now, having been relocated to Mars as part of the NFL’s latest expansion, Byron must adapt to a dysfunctional team, a washed-up coach with anger-management issues, and a front office led by team owner/governor of Mars Elon Musk (or a robot clone of Elon Musk) as they try to find a path to success and happiness.

Our Take

Given that off-field issues in the NFL are anything but PG, this series sounds like it’s gonna be for the slightly older viewing audiences. As a result, expect FOX, CBS, and anyone else who has NFL programming on their networks/streaming services currently to leverage the potential of having more IP from the popular sports brand on their respected networks.
