‘Monsters vs. Aliens’ Series Debuts on Nick This Sat.
Fans of DreamWorks Animation’s Monsters vs. Aliens will get the chance to enjoy a weekly comedy series based on the 2009 movie, beginning this Saturday. The cabler will premiere the CG-animated series this Saturday (March 23) at 9:30 p.m., right after its popular Kids Choice Awards broadcast.
The new series follows the further adventures of the beloved monsters- B.O.B. (Eric Edelstein), the gelatinous blob without a brain; Link (Diedrich Bader), the prehistoric fish-man; Dr. Cockroach (Chris O’Dowd, Bridesmaids), the half-man/half-insect mad scientist; and Susan (aka Ginormica) (Riki Lindhome), the incredible growing woman-as they learn to adapt to a new world and work side by side with a bizarre group of aliens. The 2009 feature was directed by Conrad Vernon and Rob Letterman and made over $381.6 million worldwide.
In the half-hour special, “Welcome to Area Fifty-Something,” Susan, B.O.B., Link and Dr. Cockroach are stationed at Area Fifty-Something to protect the planet, when a lone alien, Coverton (Jeff Bennett) arrives and imprisons the President while making a permanent home on base.
The new series is exec produced by Emmy-winning show runners Bob Schooley and Mark McCorkle, the duo behind such popular shows such as Kim Possible, The Penguins of Madagascar and Buzz Lightyear of Star Command.
