'Rick & Morty' Creator Justin Roiland Is Making a New Show Called 'Gloop World' with the 'Robot Chicken' Team
Published Jan 06, 2020It's a strangely gooey day in the business we call show. After Gwyneth Paltrow shared the trailer for her Netflix series called The Goop Lab, Rick & Morty co-creator Justin Roiland has just unveiled plans for a new series called Gloop World.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gloop World will see Roiland team up with the team behind Robot Chicken. It's being developed for the upcoming Quibi streaming service.
"Gloop World has been a dream of mine to make for almost seven years," Roiland said in a statement. "A tactile clay animation show with a mysterious, weird, and expansive world and really fun characters, fingerprints and all. I couldn't have done this without the folks at Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, who understood exactly what I meant when I wanted the clay animation to have an imperfect approach, where you can see the animators in the work. I want the Gloop characters to feel like you can reach into your phone and grab them yourself. Can't wait to share this weird silly show with the world."
Robot Chicken's John Harvatine IV will direct. He added, "Ever since I first saw Gumby, I was fascinated with clay as a medium. Gloop World is funny, and it's innovative, and Quibi is the perfect home for this show."
Quibi is set to launch in April.
