Official Press Release
July 12, 2005, Los Angeles, CA – Sometimes art can take a life–and death–of its own. The Wednesday, July 13 episode of Fox’s The Inside will feature original artwork by comic book penciler, Tone Rodriguez (“Violent Messiahs” and “The Snake Plissken Chronicles”).
The Inside is Fox’s character driven ensemble series about FBI Agents who investigate serial crimes while discovering that life’s biggest surprises may come from their own lives. Known for its dark humor and sophisticated case theories, The Inside proved to be a dream job come true for Rodriguez.
“I was originally contacted by Robert Anderson, the Property Master for The Inside. He told me that the show’s producers were looking for some gritty, film noir style artwork to be prominently featured as a plot device for an upcoming episode,” said Rodriguez.
This week’s episode of The Inside is about a fictional comic book creator, Max Stern, who is secretly a delusional serial killer. Stern stalks and kills women, later chronicling these exploits in a comic book called “Dragunov.”
Rodriguez added, “The Inside was looking for demons, dragons, monsters, and claws, just not in that order. I worked up several fictional comic book covers, pin-ups, splash pages, and sequential pages to give the killer the appearance of a having a very full and successful comic book career. These pieces will be all over this week’s episode. I drew these pages in an art style that was very different from my normal work and the freedom of it all was totally thrilling.”
Anderson said “Tone’s mad art skills and quick work really saved us on this episode and saved my ass! He knew exactly what the show needed and delivered.”
20th Century Fox’s The Inside appears Wednesdays at 9/8 central. Check your local listing for further information or visit www.fox.com/theinside.
