Comedy Central orders animated series, “Jeff and Some Aliens”

Jeff and Some Aliens, a recurring segment on TripTank, has earned its own spin-off, with Comedy Central announcing a 10-episode order of half-hours for 2016.

“It would be so weird if this show wasn’t animated,” said Comedy Central’s programming chief, Kent Alterman.

“We’d like to beat the trolls to the punch and be the first to say: ‘They cancelled Futurama for THIS?!,’” said creators Sean Donnelly and Alessandro Minoli.

The official series description:

Jeff and Some Aliens follows Jeff, the world’s most average guy, and the three aliens sent to study him to determine whether or not humanity should be destroyed. Jeff’s mundane life is constantly thrown into chaos by his extraterrestrial guests – it isn’t always easy having roommates who force you to participate in grueling intergalatic decathalons or perform Azurian honor killings to restore interstellar balance.

It’s executive produced and created by Sean Donnelly and Alessandro Minoli and executive produced by ShadowMachine’s Corey Campodonico and Alex Bulkley. ShadowMachine produces the animation. Monika Zielinska and Ian Friedman are the Executives in Charge of Production for Comedy Central.

Here are a couple of NSFW segments of Jeff and Some Aliens as seen on TripTank.
