It’s one man against the world in Dan Vs., a new animated comedy series from Film Roman and The Hatchery set to debut Oct. 10 on The Hub in the United States and available for foreign buyers at upcoming MIPCOM market through Starz Media.
The series is in production on 22 episodes, with Dan Angel and Film Roman head of studio Jay Fukuto serving as executive producers.
In the series, Dan takes on a different adversary in every episode ranging from the dentist and traffic to the barber. The cast includes Curtis Armstrong, Dave Foley, Paget Brewster and former Family Ties co-stars Meredith Baxter and Michael Gross.
‘There are lots of animated series in the international markets, but none out there now have the original humor or heart of Dan Vs. and so we feel sure it will play well in the international marketplace, especially to hard to reach teens,’ says Gene George, Starz Media executive VP of worldwide distribution. ‘This is the rare comedy that will appeal to a wide international audience.’
