Quibi has placed a series order for Doomlands (working title), a new adult animation from Josh O’Keefe and Look Mom! Productions, a studio that specializes in original animated programming for teens and adults.
The series follows infamous Danny Doom and aspiring bartender Lhandi as they sling beers across a hellish wasteland in their mobile subterranean pub: The Oasis. In order to survive, all the crew needs to do is not kill each other.
Paying homage to his Australian upbringing and love for “Ozploitation” film, series creator O’Keefe began the project through a successful Kickstarter campaign. The series was then picked up by Look Mom! Productions, a Blue Ant Studios company, and developed with Executive Producer Joshua Bowen.
“When I was first introduced to Josh O’Keefe’s concept for Doomlands, I immediately loved the idea of a motley crew of characters roaming around a wasteland in a subterranean vehicle that doubles as a bar. The only thing I was disappointed in is the fact that there isn’t a bar that exists like this in real life,” said Bowen, Creative Director of Look Mom! Productions. “We couldn’t have found better partners in Quibi and can’t wait for The Oasis to roll onto screens across Canada and the U.S.”
Bowen’s credits include Gary and His Demons, Goodwin vs. Badwin (co-creator), Night Sweats and Bigfoot. The talent attached to the new series includes supervising producer/voice director Lee Porter (Gary and His Demons, Bigfoot); writers/performers Roger Bainbridge (Founder of Tony Ho, also featured in Baroness Von Sketch, The Handmaid’s Tale, The Amazing Gayl Pile), Mark Little (Conan, Cupcake & Dino; creator, Gary and His Demons, Cavendish), Kayla Lorette (creator, New Eden; Gary and His Demons, Kim’s Convenience); and animation director Stephen Sloan (Crack-Duck, Bigfoot; creator, Parenthesis Humour).
Look Mom! Productions is a Blue Ant Studios company, specializing in original animated content for teens and adults. Learn more at lookmomproductions.com.
