Comedy Central has dropped an action-packed trailer for its new adult animated comedy Digman!, following the questionable adventures of a washed up archaeology superstar trying to get back in the dirt and set to a rather haunting cover of “All Star” by Smashmouth. The debut toon written and produced by Emmy and Golden Globe winner Andy Samberg (Palm Springs), with co-creator/showrunner Neil Campbell (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), premieres Wednesday, March 22 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT.
The half-hour animated series is set in a world where archaeologists are massive celebrities and the coolest people on the planet, with Samberg providing the voice of the protagonist, Rip Digman. The principal cast features Mitra Jouhari (Three Busy Debras), Tim Robinson (I Think You Should Leave), Dale Soules (Orange Is the New Black), Guz Khan (Our Flag Means Death), Melissa Fumero (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) and Tim Meadows (The Goldbergs).
As previously announced, the Season 1 guest cast list for Digman! includes Clancy Brown, Andy Daly, Cole Escola, Harvey Guillén, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Marc Evan Jackson, Rachel Kaly, Kerri Kenney, Lauren Lapkus, Jane Lynch, Mike Mitchell, Kyle Mooney, Claudia O’Doherty, Lennon Parham, Daniel Radcliffe, Maya Rudolph, Paul Rust, Jason Schwartzman, Carl Tart, Joe Lo Truglio and Edgar Wright.
