YouTube Unveils First Original Series, ‘Paranormal Action Squad’

Animated series directed by Emmy-winning ‘Futurama’ and ‘Family Guy’ writer Michael Rowe debuts on YouTube Red November 16.

LOS ANGELES -- YouTube has announced the upcoming launch of its first animated series, Paranormal Action Squad, from top YouTube gaming and animation creators Vanoss, SeaNanners and Mr_Sark.

Helmed by Michael Rowe, the Emmy Award-winning writer on Futurama and Family Guy, and produced by 3BlackDot, this new animated show debuts exclusively on YouTube Red on November 16, 2016.

Paranormal Action Squad is an eight-episode comedy that follows two paranormal enthusiasts, Paul (voiced by SeaNanners) and Eddie (voiced by Mr_Sark) who, along with their squad mates and enthusiastic neighbor Vanoss (voiced by Vanoss), have made it their mission in life to uncover the mysteries of the ghostly universe.

In each episode, this team of ill-equipped paranormal investigators will fight the supernatural for desperate clients while trying not to make things worse.
