UPN orders Roman DOOMSDAY
UPN has ordered thirteen episodes of DOOMSDAY from Film Roman for the 2000-01 season. As previously announced [Flash 8/17/99], DOOMSDAY is an animated sci-fi/comedy series. While the concept was created by writer/producer Tracy Torme, Howard Stern will play an integral role in the development of the script and in the production of the series, as well as provide the voice for the family dog. Several of Stern's celebrity friends will appear as special guest voices. DOOMSDAY tells the story of the Bradley family who travel in a motor-home across a post-apocalyptic United States in search of a new home and traditional family values. Tracy Torme began his career as a staff writer at SCTV and SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE and has since gone on to write and produce for a variety of television series including SLIDERS and STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION. Howard Stern is host of THE HOWARD STERN SHOW, a daily syndicated radio talk show.
