Rooster Teeth has announced a new upcoming dark comedy animated series “Spikeface” from RCG, the production company of Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton. If these names don’t ring a bell, this trio is the brilliant masterminds behind “It’s Always Sunny in Philadephia” which is going onto its 13th season later this year and has been renewed through its 14th season.
McElhenney will serve as the Executive Producer for the eight-episode original series. The series, “Spikeface” will be produced in-house by Rooster Teeth Animation. The series is originally based on an idea by writers and executive producers Geoff Barbanell and Itai Grunfeld. Rooster Teeth co-founders Matt Hullum and Burnie Burns will also serve as Executive Producers.
So many of us at Rooster Teeth are huge fans of Rob and we can’t wait to help him and his team bring ‘Spikeface’ to life,” Rooster Teeth chief creative officer Burnie Burns said in a statement. Cheekily, he added that the deal “sends a really strong message to young people: if you study, work hard and produce over a decade of top-quality beloved network television programming, well then maybe you can get your own show on the internet too.”
The series will debut along with the upcoming gen:Lock series, on their digital subscription service, which starts at $4.99 and includes some of the best content on the internet such as “Achievement Hunter”, “A Million Dollars, But…” and “Red vs Blue” to name a few.
