Short-form animation is coming to Comedy Central in 2013, as the cable network ordered up eight episodes of Triptank from Alex Bulkley and Corey Campodonico (“Robot Chicken,” “Moral Orel”).
The weekly half-hour series, premiering in fall 2013, will feature animated shorts in a variety of styles — including 2D, stop-motion and CGI — and talent, that, at least in the pilot, included Bob Odenkirk, Larry David, Zach Galafianakis, Kumail Nanjiani, Brett Gelman and Kyle Kinane.
“When we did the pilot, they assured me it would be literally animated…and it was,” said Kent Alterman, Comedy Central’s head of programming.
“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.”
