One of my favorite non-horror shows out there is FX’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. That series is run by a group of guys named Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton and their production company is fittingly called RCG.
Well, Variety reports RCG just sold anew dark-comedy animated project to Rooster Teeth called Spikeface. The series follows “one of the world’s great horror icons, who slaughters a couple at a roadside motel — before he discovers they have a baby girl and decides to raise the orphan as his own. That pisses off his roommates, who also are iconic horror villains.”
“So many of us at Rooster Teeth are huge fans of Rob and we can’t wait to help him and his team bring ‘Spikeface’ to life,” Rooster Teeth chief creative officer Burnie Burns said in a statement
The eight-episode original series will be executive produced by McElhenney based on an idea by writers and executive producers Geoff Barbanell and Itai Grunfeld. Rooster Teeth co-founders Matt Hullum and Burnie Burns also will executive produce, along with 3 Arts Entertainment. The series will be produced by Rooster Teeth Animation and will premiere on their subscription-streaming service in 2019.
