Have you ever wondered what it would be like if Barack Obama and Joe Biden teamed up to time travel and fight crime?
Described by its own creator as a “stoner idea,” adult animated series-in-the-making “Barry & Joe: The Animated Series” gathered momentum by securing late night host Conan O’Brien as an executive producer, Newsweek reported Friday.
With the pilot made a reality in August after exceeding a $100,000 donation goal on Kickstarter, creator and director-writer Adam Reid told Newsweek that the “Quantum Leap”-inspired cartoon, focusing on the previous president-vice president duo, is intended as “an escapist liberal fantasy.”
Never miss a local story.
Joining O’Brien as executive producer is animation studio Titmouse, Inc., known for its work on Adult Swim programming.
The half-hour program, said by Variety to be marketed as a “bromantic comedy,” will be pitched to networks in early 2018.
