VIDEO: Go Behind the Scenes of Adult Swim’s ‘The Shivering Truth’

With animation by ShadowMachine, stop-motion comedy-horror anthology created by Vernon Chatman premieres December 9.

Created and written by Vernon Chatman, ‘The Shivering Truth’ premieres on Adult Swim on Sunday, December 9.

A delicately crafted, darkly surreal anthology comedy billed as “a miniature propulsive omnibus clusterbomb of painfully riotous daymares all dripping with the orange goo of dream logic,” The Shivering Truth is a series of loosely-linked emotional parables about stories within tales that crawled out of the deepest caverns of your unconscious mind and became lovingly animated in breath-slapping stop motion -- in other words, it is the TRUTH.

Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the first six episodes of the new quarter-hour stop-motion animated series, which was created and written by Vernon Chatman, directed by Chatman and Cat Solen, and executive produced by PFFR (Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter, Xavier: Renegade Angel) and Solen, with animation provided by ShadowMachine.

With special guest voices including Maria Bamford, Kevin Breznahan, Rachel Butera, Ivy Chatman, Vernon Chatman , Zadie Chatman, David Cross, Andy Daly, Janeane Garofalo, Jon Glaser, Bobby Kelly, Conner O’Malley, Trey Parker, Jordan Peele, Zack Perlman, Martha Plimpton, John Reynolds, Nicole Rodenburg, Peter Serafinowicz, Miriam Tolan and Julio Torres, Adult Swim’s brand new stop-motion animated series The Shivering Truth premieres Sunday, December 9 at Midnight ET/PT.
