First Trailer for Animated Pa Series Killogy is Ton a Fun

13 May 2015 12:13 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Killogy is an ambitious animated post-apocalyptic crime series produced by The Boondocks producer Rodney Barnes. The first teaser has hit the web and I think it looks like a complete blast.

Killogy is based on the Idw comic created by Alan Robert and features the voices of Frank Vincent (The Sopranos), Marky Ramone (The Ramones), Brea Grant (Dexter) and Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein (The Misfits).

Synopsis:

Killogy finds Sally Sno-Cones (Vincent), Summer Rhoades (Grant) and Cole Edwards (Ramone) locked in a prison cell, accused of murder — just as the world is being overrun by a zombie apocalypse. The trailer shows the rag-tag gang taking on a disembodied undead head, and a reawakened voodoo curse flooding the streets of New York with blood.

Killogy: The Cult Hit Comic Goes Animated

7 May 2015 4:30 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Comic creator Alan Robert had quite the little hit on his hands with his Idw published mini series Killogy and it looks as though there's a move afoot to bring the story off the printed page and on to screens as an animated series.Killogy is a high-energy, animated dark comedy from creator Alan Robert (Life Of Agony) based on his hit Idw Publishing comic series, in association with Squeeze Studio Animation and award-winning producer Rodney Barnes (The Boondocks, Everybody Hates Chris). Stars Frank Vincent (Goodfellas, The Sopranos), Marky Ramone (the Ramones), Brea Grant (Heroes, Dexter), and Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein (the Misfits) battle it out in apocalyptic-Brooklyn when an ancient voodoo curse wakes the dead and floods the city with blood.

Watch Marky Ramone, Frank Vincent Fight Flying Zombie Heads in Animated Clip

6 May 2015 11:36 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Life of Agony bassist Alan Robert's comic-book mini-series Killogy has been an indie hit since its 2012 release, due to its Tarantino-esque mix of dark humor and gory violence alongside a bizarre celebrity cast. The series is set during a zombie apocalypse and centers on three accused murderers who bear uncanny resemblances to tough-guy actor Frank Vincent (Raging Bull, Goodfellas, The Sopranos), punk icon Marky Ramone and Heroes actress Brea Grant.

Now Killogy is stepping off the page to become an animated series, and its stars – joined by ex-Misfits guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein, »

Snoop Dogg Developing HBO Drama About 1980s Los Angeles

21 March 2015 11:21 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

He just appeared on the season final of “Empire,” so it’s only fitting that Snoop Dogg is slowly building a TV empire of his own.

The rapper announced Friday in his keynote speech at SXSW that he will exec produce a drama about 1980s Los Angeles with director Allen Hughes (“The Book of Eli”) and writer Rodney Barnes (“The Boondocks”).

The show will center around a family living in inner-city L.A. and will explore the effects of Reagan-era social policies on the area. Snoop Dogg grew up in Long Beach during that era.

“HBO is the No. 1 network in the world as far as developing and having these types of shows come to life,” he said during his SXSW Q&A with longtime manager Ted Chung. “This is a dream come true to be able to tell a story that’s going to be told the right way on the right network. »

Snoop Dogg and Menace II Society’s Director Are Developing an HBO Series

20 March 2015 2:56 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Snoop Dogg is quietly one of the busiest guys in entertainment. Just this week alone, he's appeared on Empire, delivered a keynote speech at SXSW, shared the release date for his next album, and announced that he's got a new HBO series in the works. He's set to executive produce the untitled series with Menace II Society director Allen Hughes and writer Rodney Barnes (whom he previously worked with on The Boondocks). The series, set in early 1980s L.A., will follow a "family whose seemingly idyllic life is turned upside down by the collision of their community and American politics. " During his SXSW keynote, Snoop described the series as one that'll show the Reaganomics effect on his community (Snoop, of course, grew up in Long Beach during that era). Fingers crossed he'll star in it, too. »

Snoop Dogg, Allen Hughes & 'Boondocks' Writer Team Up for HBO Project Set in 1980s Los Angeles

20 March 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Snoop Dogg and director Allen Hughes are teaming up for an HBO drama series that will be written by Rodney Barnes ("The Boondocks," "Everybody Hates Chris"). Currently untitled, the project will be set in early 1980s Los Angeles, and will follow a family whose seemingly perfect life is turned upside down when politics meets community, and the 2 collide. That's all HBO has revealed about the story thus far.  I can only assume Snoop Dogg's history, as someone who grew up in the La area of the period, will influence the story here, as well as Reaganomics... but I'm certainly curious. This will mark at least the 2nd period peace, set in the late 1970s/early 1980s, that will feature black casts, potentially heading to a TV screen near you in next TV season - the other being Netflix's musical drama, "The Get Down," which will unfold over 13 episodes (each »
