Jon Stewart’s digital animated series is still on track for a launch before the November Presidential election. “My hope is that it will be up and running by September or October,” HBO’s programming chief Casey Bloys said Saturday at TCA.
He revealed more details about the show. “It’s an animated parody of a cable news network. It’s Onion-like, with video and text,” he said. “It’s very much Jon’s voice and tone.” (Stewart also voices the show.) ...
So I'm not sure how this cartoon parody of Mr. Stewart's will perform, but it's always good to see another high profile TV producer jumping into the animation pool.
I'm waiting for the day when 50% or more of all our movie and home-screen entertainment is animated.
