New fall programming includes:
Bad Days (animated parody) – October 8th
From Junaid Chundrigar, the creator of the animated viral sensation Disassembled, and co-creator Davor Bujakovic, Bad Days shows us heroes and villains on their worst days. Whether Green Lantern is wasting time with an emerald Yo-Yo or Batman has locked himself out of the Bat-Mobile, Bad Days lets us laugh at epic super failure.
Adrianne Curry’s Super Fans (unscripted reality) – October 11th
Super Fans showcases the best and brightest of the fan community. Host Adrianne Curry (America’s Next Top Model, My Fair Brady), known to many as the “Queen of the Dorks,” takes her deep and abiding love of all things geek and uses it to explore the lives of other hardcore fans of comic books, graphic novels, movies and TV. Who are these people and what is it about their muses of choice that inspires them to such extreme fandom? Adrianne will visit their homes, meet their friends and families, and pull back the curtain on the unique lives of these passionate men and women.
Geek Therapy (scripted comedy) – Coming November
America Young stars in Geek Therapy, a comedic series about a caring Therapist who helps geeks of all kinds deal with their special emotional issues. Whether handling the troubled romantic relationship between a geek and a nerd or coaxing a catatonic geek out of her sorrow over Steve Jobs’ passing, the Geek Therapist always has a kind word and a clever plan to help.http://
