Sony Pictures Animation is teaming up with Robot Chicken producers/animators John Harvatine and Eric Towner for the stop motion animated project Superbago.

John Harvatine IV and Eric Towner are set to direct this tale centering on a pair of superhero wannabes.

Here's what Michelle Raimo Kouyate, Sony Pictures Animation's production president, had to say about Superbago.

Robot Chicken's Hilarious Star Trek Tng Sketch with Stewart and Pine

1 July 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Patrick Stewart and Chris Pine lend their voices to a very funny stop-motion animated sketch for Robot Chicken. It's called Star Trek Tng Night Crew. Stewart reprises his role as Captain Picard, and Pine plays an after hours night shift Captain named Jake. The basic plot of the sketch gives us a look at the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise that takes over the bridge after Picard and his team are done for the day. This was part of the most recent episode that aired on Sunday. Robot Chicken is such a great show, and it's one of those series I hope never ends. Thanks to IGN for the embed.

Microsoft Talks Up "Xbox Originals" Series

28 April 2014 10:38 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Appearing at NewFronts today, Microsoft revealed more of its planned move into the home broadcasting and VOD arena with the announcement (or re-announcement) of around a dozen original television programs set to be broadcast exclusively to owners of its devices through Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles.

Collectively referred to as Xbox Originals, the collection includes documentaries, reality shows, scripted dramas and comedies which are being developed by Xbox Entertainment Studios.

Xbox Entertainment Studios President Nancy Tellem says: "We're really focused on the fans of the Xbox, the millennials... many of whom are not subscribing to cable, and use a console as their entertainment device."

Unsurprisingly the new programming is primarily targeted at young male consumers into gaming, but they are also making a play for the non-gaming members of households to try and pull them into the Xbox ecosystem.

'Robot Chicken' Creators Talk 'Star Wars,' Quentin Tarantino, and 'Big Trouble in Little China' at Hollywood Screening

23 April 2014 7:18 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When asked to choose a film as part of the Modern School of Film's Film Masters screening and discussion series, "Robot Chicken" co-creator Matthew Senreich didn't take long to choose. "I think I walked into Eric's [Towner] office, and I was like, 'We gotta pick a movie. How about "Big Trouble in Little China?"' And he threw out the other two, and I was like, 'Let's go with "Big Trouble in Little China."' The "other two" to which Senreich was referring were "The Last Starfighter" and "The NeverEnding Story," but those were quickly dismissed in favor of the 1986 fantasy action flick starring Kurt Russell. After screening to a nearly packed house at the Arclight Theater in Hollywood, CA, Senreich, writer Zeb Wells, co-founder of Stoopid Buddy Studios Eric Towner, and co-head writer Doug Goldstein took part in a lengthy question and answer session regarding the film they just watched »

'Robot Chicken' creators get grilled on their 'DC Comics Special II'

10 April 2014 7:31 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) At six seasons and counting, "Robot Chicken" has become a cultural force almost as strong as the iconic characters and properties that it makes fun of on a weekly basis. In fact, the Adult Swim series has become a sort of singular destination for roasts of beloved movies, TV shows, comic books and pop culture mythologies, producing spinoffs like its massively-popular "Star Wars" parodies and, most recently, the second installment of their foray into one particular comic book universe with the "Robot Chicken DC Comics Special II: Villains in Paradise." The special premiered over the weekend, and will undoubtedly play again on the show's home channel, Cartoon Network. Creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich, along with series executive producer and DC's Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns recently spoke with Cbr News recently about the process of mounting an episode dedicated to one particular nerd universe. In addition to discussing »
