Comedy Central Picks Up ‘TripTank’, Animated Series with Contributors Larry David, Bob Odenkirk, and More
Comedy Central has just picked up TripTank, a new show from Robot Chicken producers Alex Bulkley and Corey Campodonico that’ll be an anthology of animated shorts from established comedy writers and performers. In the vein of early 90s MTV show Liquid Television, TripTank will feature recurring mini-shows within its run, which Bulkley says will be potentially developed into full-length animated spin-offs. The pilot episode features contributions and appearances from comedy greats like Bob Odenkirk, Larry David, Laura Kightlinger, Zach Galifianakis, Kumail Nanjiani, Brett Gelman, and Kyle Kinane, and folks like Adam McKay, Tom Gammill, Tommy Blancha, and Jon Glaser are also involved. Comedy Central has picked up eight episodes of TripTank that will begin to air in the fall of 2013, which’ll give you plenty of time to mentally prepare yourself for this amazing collection of comedic talent.
