A short clip released today for a series that will be premiering Sunday, Dec. 9, packs a fair amount of weirdness into 25 seconds. The clip is for “The Shivering Truth,” a stop-motion animated series coming to Adult Swim.
“The new quarter-hour series is a delicately crafted, darkly surreal anthology comedy,” Adult Swim says in today’s announcement. “Episodes are a series of loosely linked emotional parables about stories within tales that crawled out of the deepest caverns of your unconscious mind and became lovingly animated in breath-slapping stop motion — in other words, it is the TRUTH.”
The series is created and written by Vernon Chatman, directed by Chatman and Cat Solen, and executive produced by PFFR (Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter, Xavier: Renegade Angel) with Solen. The animation studio is ShadowMachine.
The voice cast includes Maria Bamford, David Cross, Janeane Garaofalo, Trey Parker, Jordan Peele and Martha Plimpton.
