TBS fans are about to be bombarded with an array of animated original series, Variety has confirmed at Comic-Con.
The TBS animation panel at the San Diego convention released four never-before-seen clips of their upcoming series — “Close Enough,” “Final Space,” and “Tarantula” — as well as a look into the next season of “American Dad!” exclusively to Variety on Thursday evening. The panel was moderated by “People of Earth” star Brian Huskey and featured TBS’ Matt Weitzman, Carson Mell, Olan Rogers, David Sacks, and J.G. Quintel.
Weitzman, the co-creator and executive producer of “American Dad!,” showcased a sneak peek into the Smith world as Stan attempts to help his daughter, Hayley, who intends to never show her face again. Unfortunately, Stan’s solution is to simply drug his daughter and reconstruct her face with his own (lack of) expertise. The new episodes premiere Monday, July 24 at 10 p.m. Et on TBS. See »
