Mondo’s animated comedy series Cat Agent and Deep Space 69 will return for additional seasons with longer 11-minute episodes of the adult-oriented series that will premiere on Mondo’s channel on VRV, the new video experience from Ellation.
Mondo’s L.A.-based production arm, Six Point Harness, has begun work on new episodes of both series, which began as short-form videos that became break-out Internet hits. Mondo is producing eight new episodes of each series, for a total of nearly three hours of new animation.
Created by Emmy-winning director Kent Osborne (Adventure Time, SpongeBob SquarePants), Cat Agent views the weird world of celebrity and fame through the eyes of a cat who’s an agent representing the cats who belong to some of the biggest names in Hollywood.
Deep Space 69, which will enter its fourth season, is the creation of Daniel Katz (Xemoland, Beer Cops) and features the voice of Dan Gordon as Jay, an intergalactic pilot who travels the galaxy with his koala first mate Hamilton (Jeff LaPensee) in search of sex, sexual exploits and sexual conquests.
British Columbia-based animation studio Yeti Farm Creative also will work on the production of both Cat Agent and Deep Space 69, which are expected to debut their new episodes in mid-2017.
