SYFY Picks Up John Cena, Kat Dennings Adult Comedy ‘Dallas and Robo’

SYFY is ready to get rolling on a mutha-truckin’ good time with its acquisition of Dallas and Robo for the channels TZGZ late-night animation block and SYFY On Demand. The eight-episode, half-hour series will make its cable debut Saturday, August 8 at “midnight-ish” ET/PT, as announced via social by John Cena, who co-stars in the show with Kat Dennings.

Dallas and Robo is a space-trucking comedy following the mis-adventures of foul-mouthed ex-stock car racer Dallas (Dennings) and her ass-kickin’ artificially intelligent good buddy, Robo (Cena). Together, they navigate their way around cannibal bikers, rival space truckers and vending machine burritos as they try to make a buck in the seedy world of interplanetary big rigging.

From ShadowMachine (Final Space, BoJack Horseman) and YouTube Originals, Dallas and Robo is executive produced by series creator Mike Roberts and showrunners Matt Mariska and Andy Sipes, alongside Cena. Alex Bulkley and Corey Campodonico from ShadowMachine also executive produce.

The series originally debuted on YouTube Red (now YouTube Premium) in 2018.

This announcement follows the recent greenlight for SYFY’s second original series for TZGZ and three additional animated pilots. The adult toon block is hosting a Comic-Con@Home panel on Friday, July 24 at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT featuring the creators and celebrity voices of the newly greenlit Devil May Care, Wild Life, Magical Girl Friendship Squad and Hell Den.
