Comedy Central and its web partner atom.com have picked up The Fuzz, a new five-episode animated web series from Waverly Films, a team of seven filmmakers based in Brooklyn who met at New York University. Created by Christopher Ford, the show mixes puppetry, live action and animation to deliver a spoof of procedural cop series. Comedy Central will eye the project as a potential pilot for on-air pickup.
Atom and Waverly previously collaborated on the Webby Award-winning series Stickman Exodus, which centered on a band of stick figures struggling to reach the ‘promised page’ in a high school kid’s notebook. The show debuted on Atom.com in 2008 and it has passed the 500,000 play mark to date.
