Marvel, Hulu to create multiple adult animated TV shows

LUCASFILM

Willis previously co-created animated shows like Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Squidbillies for Adult Swim in addition to his work as a voice actor.

The Disney-owned company has its sights set on a new partnership: with Hulu, one of Netflix's current competitors both in streaming and in original content.

In a deal quite reminiscent of the accord struck between the Reed Hastings-run streamer and Disney back in 2013 for four new series and The Defenders team-up limited series, Hulu and Marvel today unveiled four new original adult animated series and a The Offenders team-up special.

The Marvel series was among several announced by Hulu at a Television Critics Association event where networks preview upcoming programming. Comedian-turned-talk show host Chelsea Handler is part of the team for that series, working with Erica Rivinoja, who crafted the story for Girls Trip and has worked on shows including South Park and The Last Man On Earth.

Marvel's Hit-Monkey comes from Josh Gordon and Will Speck and "tracks a pissed off Japanese snow monkey who tries to take on and take down Tokyo's crime underworld with the ghost of an American assassin by his side". In the show, Howard will be trapped in a world he never made, but hopes to return home with the help of Beverly before the evil Dr. Bong can turn him into crispy duck. The series will follow the egomaniacal supervillain as he struggles to maintain control of his evil organization, as well as his over-the-top family. The HTD series based on the cigar chomping character first introduced in the comics in 1973 will be stewarded by Clerks kingpin Kevin Smith, along with Dave Willis.

Here's the official description: "In Marvel's Tigra & Dazzler Show, two woke Super Heroes and best friends, Tigra and Dazzler, fight for recognition among powered people who make up the eight million stories in Los Angeles". Writers Jordan Blum and Patton Oswalt will also executive produce along with Jeph Loeb. Howard the Duck, M.O.D.O.K, Hit-Monkey, and Tigra and Dazzler have all been green-lit according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Until then, peep some early The Offenders artwork to above, and find a synopsis of each new show below. We're so excited for what's to come."Additionally, you can check out what each show has in store below".

Break out your finest duck condom: Howard the Duck is getting his own animated series. Out of all these off-kilter announced series, this one-even with only a vague description-seems most poised to feel refreshing compared to the usual Marvel comic-TV fare.
