The new stop-motion animated series from the creators of "Robot Chicken" stars Bryan Cranston as Titanium Rex, the over-the-hill superhero in charge of the League of Freedom -- think the Justice League, but less competent. Under his command, the super-team attempts to protect the world from those who would do it harm, while figuring out how to live together under one roof -- hence the title of the show.
After you watch the debut episode ("Groaner's Wild") below, check back with CBR this afternoon for a discussion with co-creators Zeb Wells and Matthew Senreich about the show's 13-episode first season, replacing Seth Green from the lead role in favor of Cranston and shifting from the rapid-fire jokes of "Robot Chicken" to fully formed stories.
"SuperMansion" officially debuts Thursday, Oct. 8, on Crackle with three episodes. Joining Cranston in the cast are Heidi Gardner (Cooch), Tucker Gilmore (Black Saturn), Keegan-Michael Key (American Ranger / Sgt. Agony), Tom Root (Brad), Matthew Senreich (Dr. Gizmo) and Zeb Wells (Robobot).
SuperMansion, an all-new Crackle original series, premieres with three episodes on Oct. 8. Additional episodes will stream weekly through Dec. 17. SuperMansion is the first 22-minute stop-motion animated series from Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, creators of Robot Chicken. Through the uniquely skewed lens of creators Matt Senreich and Zeb Wells, along with executive producers Seth Green and Bryan Cranston, SuperMansion brings to life the League of Freedom, a mostly fearless band of super heroes. The series' voice cast includes Cranston, Green, Wells, Keegan-Michael Key, Jillian Bell, Tom Root, Tucker Gilmore, Heidi and Heidi Lynn Gardner, along with such guest stars as Chris Pine, Ron Perlman, Donald Faison, Jordan Peele, Nick Kroll, Anton Yelchin, Famke Janssen, Breckin Meyer - and more!
Titanium Rex (voiced by Bryan Cranston) is an aging super hero who has long been the head of the League of Freedom, a once-proud assembly of super heroes that isn't what it used to be. The aging, irascible Titanium Rex finds himself playing mentor to a new crop of Millennial-aged heroes who have little interest in their noble profession. Much to Titanium Rex's chagrin, they're all thrown together to live in the SuperMansion, where the young super heroes learn how to harness their super powers and fight for justice, liberty ... and the need to stay relevant to society. Join Titanium Rex and Black Saturn, Cooch, American Ranger, Brad and Robobot in their uproariously inappropriate adventures in SuperMansion, premiering this fall ... only on Crackle.
Cranston also serves as executive producer, alongside Seth Green, John Harvatine, Eric Towner and James Degus. Matthew Senreich and Zeb Wells of Robot Chicken are creators, writers and executive producers. Series regular voice cast: Bryan Cranston (Titanium Rex), Heidi Gardner (Cooch), Tucker Gilmore (Black Saturn), Keegan-Michael Key (Sgt. Agony), Tom Root (Brad), Matthew Senreich (Dr. Gizmo), Kevin Shinick (American Ranger), Zeb Wells (Robobot).
