Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, the studio behind the Emmy-winning stop-motion series, Robot Chicken, has secured a two year first-look deal with 20th Century Fox Film to development animated and family hybrid/live-action projects.
Co-founded by Seth Green, John Harvatine IV, Matthew Senreich and Eric Towner, Stoopid Buddy Stoodios is also home to Sony Crackle series SuperMansion starring Bryan Cranston, Buddy Thunderstruck for Netflix, and Adult Swim’s Hot Streets. The company is in post-production on its first live-action film, Changeland.
The Burbank-based studio, known for its stop-motion, puppetry, CG and 2D-animated content, has set an untitled Sword project as the first project under the new pact with Fox.
“Having worked with Fox for years, I’ve witnessed first-hand their dedication to making unique and boundary-pushing content,” said Green. “We are thrilled at the opportunity to make our movies with this team.”
“We are delighted that the team at Stoopid Buddy Stoodios has found a home here at Fox,” said Chairman and CEO Stacey Snider. “Their ability to craft original, character-driven stories, coupled with their unique stylistic approach is a perfect addition to our growing animation and family film business.”
