A while back I reported on the animated stop-motion feature film Hell and Back, that is being brought to us by the creators and animators of Robot Chicken. Somehow I missed the creation of a Superhero series by the same guys called SuperMansion and it looks absolutely hilarious…
According to ComingSoon: “A satire of comic book do-gooders, SuperMansion hails from creators Zeb Wells and Matthew Senreich of “Robot Chicken” fame and began life as a pilot for Adult Swim in 2013 titled “Übermansion” (which you can view here). It chronicles Titanium Rex and the rest of long-in-the-tooth hero team The League of Freedom, who all live together in the same mansion as they attempt to stay relevant in the modern world.”
From Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, SuperMansion is executive produced by Seth Green, John Harvatine IV, Eric Towner and Bryan Cranston, the latter of whom is also developing the black & white detective show parody “Tightrope” for Crackle, which is Sony’s digital entertainment platform.
Guest stars on SuperMansion include Chris Pine, Ron Perlman, Donald Faison, Jordan Peele, Nick Kroll, Anton Yelchin, Famke Janssen, Breckin Meyer and more. Look for the series to premiere on Crackle October 8.
Along with the Trailer here are some character posters and a small description of the main characters for you to look at…
