files/pictures/picture-35.jpgAdult Swim announced its newest series, TITAN MAXIMUM, from the creators of ROBOT CHICKEN. Created by ROBOT CHICKEN producer/co-head writer/director Tom Root and ROBOT CHICKEN exec producer/co-creator/writer/director Matthew Senreich, TITAN MAXIMUM uses stop-motion animation to spoof '80s action cartoons. The series will premiere this September.
ROBOT CHICKEN exec producer/co-creator/writer/director Seth Green will voice the show's villain and Root, Senreich and Green will exec produce the new series. Created in conjunction with ShadowMachine Films' Alex Bulkley and Corey Campodonico, the series also features the voice acting of Breckin Meyer, Rachael Leigh Cook, Dan Milano and Eden Espinosa.
One hundred years in the future, Saturn's moon Titan is defended by Titan Force Five, an elite squadron of young, brash pilots whose spaceships combine to form the giant robot Titan Maximum. As the series opens, the team has been disbanded due to budget cuts, but must hastily reassemble when a former team member turns rogue and tries to conquer the solar system with an assault of giant monsters. Now, the fate of humanity rests in the hands of a team of dysfunctional misfits commanding a rustbucket robot.
Root leads the writing staff, which includes Senreich and two best-selling comic book writers: Geoff Johns of DC Comics and Zeb Wells of Marvel Comics. Chris McKay directs and Eric Blyler co-produces.
