“As kids we were led to believe that archaeologists are all bad-ass, adventure-seeking rock stars, but after spending 20 long years pursuing careers in archaeology we now see that was a lie perpetuated by Big Hollywood. So we created Digman! to finally bring our childhood dreams to life. Plus, we noticed a dearth of new TV shows recently and figured it was wholly on us to bring the world what it’s missing the most: CONTENT.”
“Andy is a singular creative force with a vision to explore bold, genre-shifting, comedic storytelling,” said Nina L. Diaz, President of Content and Chief Creative Officer, Paramount Media Networks & MTV Entertainment Studios. “We are thrilled to partner with him, The Lonely Island and CBS Studios on Digman! – the first series Andy has written and produced – to Comedy Central’s robust animation line-up.”
“Animation continues to become an even more significant part of our comedy slate,” said David Stapf, President of CBS Studios “On Digman!, we are fortunate to be working with an incredibly talented team of writers, animators and voice talent, including our fantastic partners at The Lonely Island, MTV Entertainment and Comedy Central.”
