Netflix Orders ‘Inside Job’ Animated Series From ‘Gravity Falls’ Team

  • The Wrap
Netflix has ordered an adult animated series, “Inside Job,” from Shion Takeuchi and “Gravity Falls” creator Alex Hirsch, who is a co-executive producer.

Per Netflix, “Inside Job” is a workplace comedy set in the shadow government, where every conspiracy theory — from the Illuminati to Reptoids — is true, and one woman struggles to keep the chaos under wraps.

Takeuchi, who has an overall deal with Netflix, will serve as showrunner. Takeuchi served as a writer on “Gravity Falls,” where she worked with Hirsch.

‘Zima Blue’: Robert Valley on Directing Netflix’s ‘Love, Death & Robots’ Short

If you haven't seen Netflix's R-rated animated anthology series Love, Death & Robots, first of all, what are you waiting for? And secondly, you're missing out on excellent adaptations of award-winning stories by awards-worthy animators and filmmakers. David Fincher and Tim Miller brought the 18-episode epic to the content-streaming masses, but it fell to studios like Passion Animation and animators like the Oscar-nominated Robert Valley (Pear Cider and Cigarettes) to bring the individual stories to life, like the incredible short, "Zima Blue." This tale, adapted from Alastair Reynolds' own short story, …

Sci Fi Fidelity Podcast: 6 Notable Genre Athology Series

Michael Ahr Dave Vitagliano Apr 7, 2019

With The Twilight Zone being rebooted once again, our genre TV podcast hosts discuss their favorite anthology series of the past.

Each month on the Sci Fi Fidelity podcast, in addition to our show reviews and interviews, we discuss a topic of interest in genre television, sharing six exemplars of the chosen category. This month we tackled our favorite anthology series of the past, prompted by Jordan Peele's revival of The Twilight Zone and our recent enjoyment of Netflix's Love, Death & Robots, an animated version of the episodic short story phenomenon.

Among the examples discussed are obvious choices such as the original Rod Serling creation, The Twilight Zone, and its contemporary exploration of the unexplained, The Outer Limits, although we focus on the 1990s reboot, which lasted a bit longer than its predecessor. Much is made of the anthology series' ability to

Netflix Denies Arranging ‘Love, Death and Robots’ Episode Order Based on Users’ Sexual Identity

  • The Wrap
Netflix is denying an accusation that the order in which viewers are presented with “Love, Death and Robots” — its new Tim Miller and David Fincher-created adult animated anthology series — episodes has anything to do with a user’s own sexual identity.

“We’ve never had a show like ‘Love, Death & Robots’ before so we’re trying something completely new: presenting four different episode orders,” Netflix said in a tweet Tuesday, following the 18-episode show’s March 15 launch. “The version you’re shown has nothing to do with gender, ethnicity, or sexual identity — info we don’t even have in the first place.”

That tweet was in direct response to a thread started by Out in Tech co-founder Lukas Thoms on Monday, in which he wrote: “Just discovered the most Insane thing. The Order Of The Episodes for Netflix’s new series ‘Love Death & Robots’ changes based on whether

Love, Death & Robots: How Tim Miller's Creative Jam Session Was Born

Chris Longo Mar 29, 2019

Innovative, and somewhat provocative, animation is at the forefront of Netflix's robot-themed anthology.

It’s the morning after Tim Miller’s latest project, the animated anthology series, Love, Death & Robots, debuted for a late-night Alamo Drafthouse crowd at SXSW, and the Deadpool director, despite having a big personality, admits he’s slightly bashful about doing interviews. He jokes that much of the press tour for Deadpool centered on Ryan Reynolds and his Merc with a Mouth, and he was happy to be relegated to the background. He is ostensibly the face of this project with no charismatic leads to defer to, but Miller seems more comfortable with pointing the spotlight at the medley of animators and storytellers he collaborated with to bring Robots to life.

Really it’s impossible for one man to have enough stamina to take credit for what’s been hyped in

Emmy Predictions 2019: Best Animated Program

Emmy Predictions 2019: Best Animated Program
Last Year’s Winner: “Rick and Morty

Still Eligible: No.

Hot Streak: Out of 29 eligible seasons, “The Simpsons” has been nominated 26 times and won 10 times. In comparison, “South Park” has been nominated 17 times and one five times out of 21 eligible seasons. Those are high batting averages, but not the highest among multiple winners. “Bob’s Burgers” (which has won twice) has been nominated seven times in eight seasons, and “Futurama” (another two-time winner) technically has eight nominations for just seven seasons — Comedy Central split the final two seasons into halves, qualifying four times, but still only counting as two full seasons.

Fun Fact: Here are a few need-to-know rules about the Best Animated Series category: Animated series are nominated for a single episode, but air three episodes in the eligibility period to qualify as a series; the episode’s writer can choose to be part of the animation team honored

‘Love, Death & Robots’ Review: Netflix’s ‘Heavy Metal’ For Post-Millennials

Remember Heavy Metal, the 1981 animated movie based on the French magazine Métal Hurlant? That feature-length hodgepodge of stories about stoner aliens, voluptuous androids, horny space travelers, dragon-riding heroines in dominatrix gear and other interstellar-overdriven pulp touches? “A step beyond science fiction” was the tagline; a 13-year-old boy peering at intricate drawings of rayguns and boobies with a flashlight under the sheets was the vibe. For a generation of geeks, this was solid gold. Fast forward to right now — past the years of Spike & Mike’s Twisted Animation festivals and MTV’s Liquid Television,

View All 3 Trailers for Netflix's 'Love, Death & Robots' Anthology Series

"Brace for impact!" Strap in and get ready. Netflix has unleashed a feast of 18 different "Nsfw" sci-fi short films as part of an anthology series titled Love, Death & Robots (or also just Love Death + Robots). Produced by Tim Miller (of Blur Studio) and David Fincher, this series is a bit like "Black Mirror" meets "Heavy Metal", with different writers/directors taking on each short film. And each one is just as different as the next, presenting alternate histories, robots, aliens, werewolves, A.I., and much more. This project came out of nowhere - or at least they didn't announce it publicly in advance. And yet, it is already here! Netflix just released Love, Death & Robots (all 18 shorts) on their service today. If any of these look good, just open up and watch. The shorts range from 5 to 17 minutes in length, and were made by various studios, directors, and

‘Love, Death & Robots’ Review: David Fincher and Tim Miller’s Netflix Shorts Are One-Dimensional Beauty

‘Love, Death & Robots’ Review: David Fincher and Tim Miller’s Netflix Shorts Are One-Dimensional Beauty
Good ideas wasted are often more infuriating than no idea at all. Such is the case with Tim Miller and David Fincher’s series of animated short films, “Love, Death & Robots,” a project conceived with broad ambition and executed with a maddeningly narrow perspective. Uniting animators from around the world for 18 standalone stories of various self-determined lengths, the Netflix offering intends to be a “global celebration” of the craft, as Miller said during the opening remarks of its SXSW premiere. While there’s a lot to admire in the visuals — each distinct to their episode, with an enticing range of styles on display — the stories themselves are treated like an afterthought, and that colors everything an ugly shade of gray.

Only one-third of the first season was screened in Austin Saturday evening, but the chosen entries shared enough unwanted aspects to dissuade further viewing. For one, all of the

Love, Death & Robots Review (Spoiler-Free)

Netflix unleashes a bold, aggressive animated anthology that’s far from perfect, but still a hell of a lot of fun!

"It's pretty anticlimactic. Well, welcome to humans."

Love, Death & Robots is a stylistic experiment that harkens back to projects like Heavy Metal, The Animatrix, or MTV’s old Liquid Television programming block that just wanted to have fun, be awesome, and prove that cartoons can be for adults, too. Love, Death & Robots carries the spirit of those older animation touchstones, but the difference in quality is a little more noticeable than in those other endeavors, largely because there’s a lot more content here.

Love, Death & Robots contains 18 segments and clocks in at a little over three hours. Accordingly, not all of the sequences here will connect with you, but it’s fair to say that many of them will, and that there’s enough of them that work

David Fincher and Tim Miller’s ‘Love, Death & Robots’ Kills Hitler in Animated Short

Netflix is building up to the March 15 release of its animated anthology series “Love, Death & Robots” by dropping a teaser trailer each day for one of the season’s 18 different animated short films. The series hails from “Deadpool” director Tim Miller and executive producer David Fincher. Per the official synopsis, “Love, Death & Robots” will feature different animation styles and directors for each short film.

As Netflix continues to drop individualized teasers, the streaming giant has issued synopses for each of the animations. One short that already stands out is “Alternate Histories,” which is set in a world called Multiversity and will feature Adolf Hitler dying in a variety of comically fantastic ways.” The teaser for “Alternate Histories” finds Hitler being trampled by a horse and ends with the bloodied and dismembered dictator spread out across the concrete.

The 18 short films span several different genres, including science fiction (“Three

7 New Netflix Shows to Binge in March, and the Best Reasons to Watch

7 New Netflix Shows to Binge in March, and the Best Reasons to Watch
1. “Turn Up Charlie” (available March 15)

Why Should I Watch? Idris Elba made a TV show combining his two passions: acting and DJ’ing. Imagining John Luther strapping on a headset and bobbing his head to club bangers should be enough reason to watch, but if you need more, know Elba’s eponymous Charlie is not only a struggling disc jockey; he’s also the onscreen successor to Vin Diesel’s “Pacifier” and Kevin on “This Is Us” — a manny. When Charlie sees one last shot at stardom, he takes a gig watching his famous best friend’s daughter (played by Frankie Hervey), thus completing the sex symbol triumvirate: a DJ, a ladies’ man (it’s in the Netflix plot summary), and a responsible father figure.

Bonus Reason: To clarify, yes, Elba is a creator, producer, and star of “Turn Up Charlie,” but the eight-part first season also features a particularly under-utilized thespian: Piper Perabo.
