UPN's CG-Animated Game Over Ready for Prime Time

UPN's new comedy, GAME OVER, network prime time's first-ever CGI-animated series, will debut March 10 (8:00-8:30 pm ET/PT). Produced by Carsey-Werner-Mandabach, created by David Sacks (THE SIMPSONS, THE TICK) and developed by David Goetsch (3RD ROCK FROM THE SUN), David Sacks, Jason Venokur (3RD ROCK FROM THE SUN) and Ross Venokur (THE TICK), GAME OVER follows an extraordinary suburban family living in an alternate videogame universe comprised of off-beat characters, action heroes, monsters and toon characters inspired by popular videogames. 3D animation is produced by Toronto-based DKP Effects.

Rip Smashenburn is a racecar driver who rides daily in the Grand Prix and hopes to one day make it through a single race without blowing up. His beautiful wife, Raquel, juggles familial responsibilities with her career as a gun-toting, monster-fighting government agent. Their son, Billy, is a hip-hop loving, trend-obsessed 13-year-old who couldn't be more different than his older sister, Alice, a 15-year-old trying to save the world one annoying way at a time. The family pet, Turbo, is 300 pounds of everything a pet isn't. He knocks over pawnshops, busts open parking meters and robs the fighting Shaolin monks who live next door.

GAME OVER stars the voices of E.G. Daily (RUGRATS GO WILD!, CHALK ZONE) as Billy Smashenburn, Rachel Dratch (SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE) as Alice Smashenburn, Artie Lang (THE HOWARD STERN SHOW, ELF) as Turbo, Lucy Liu (CHARLIE'S ANGELS, ALLY MCBEAL) as Raquel Smashenburn and Patrick Warburton (SEINFELD, THE TICK) as Rip Smashenburn.

GAME OVER is exec produced by Goetsch, Sacks, Jason Venokur, Ross Venokur, Marcy Carsey, Tom Werner, Caryn Mandabach (THAT '70S SHOW, GROUNDED FOR LIFE, WHOOPI, THE TRACY MORGAN SHOW). John Rice (KING OF THE HILL) is supervising director.
