Adult Swim Announces New Stop-Motion Animated Series, Titan Maximum
New Series From Head Writer/Creators of Popular Adult Swim Original, Robot Chicken
Adult Swim's newest original comedy series, Titan Maximum, launches this fall from the creators of the network's most popular original series, Robot Chicken. Created by Robot Chicken producer/co-head writer/director Tom Root and Robot Chicken executive producer/co-creator/writer/director Matthew Senreich, Titan Maximum uses stop-motion animation to bring a 1980s-inspired action cartoon to life as only the Emmy-winning Robot Chicken team can. Robot Chicken executive producer/co-creator/writer/director Seth Green will voice the show's villain and Root, Senreich and Green executive 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. Titan Maximum premieres in September on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim.
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.
Titan Maximum is created by Root and Senreich and executive produced by Green, Root and Senreich under Green and Senreich's Stoopid Monkey Productions and Root's production banner. 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.
