Justin Roiland is the co-creator behind one of the biggest animated shows out now, Rick & Morty, but he now has another show that he's working on for the upcoming streaming service Quibi.
According to The Wrap, Roiland will be working on a show called Gloop World which follows the lives of two anthropomorphic blob roommates, Bob Roundy and Funzy. The show will be brought to life by Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, and Roiland had this to say about the show:
"‘Gloop World' has been a dream of mine to make for almost seven years… A tactile clay animation show with a mysterious, weird, and expansive world and really fun characters, fingerprints and all. I couldn't have done this without the folks at Stoopid Buddy Stoodios who understood exactly what I meant when I wanted the clay animation to have an imperfect approach, where you can see the animators in the work. I want the ‘Gloop' characters to feel like you can reach into your phone and grab them yourself. Can't wait to share this weird silly show with the world!"
While I'm not expecting this show to have the same meta element that Rick & Morty co-creator Dan Harmon is known for, I'm sure it's going to be filled to the brim with the signature humor that is signature to Roiland. We don't have an official look at Gloop World yet, but hopefully, we get something before the year ends. After all, Roiland himself said that he's been sitting on this project for seven years.
Gloop World is only one of many other shows that Quibi is trying to bring into their platform. Other shows include a series from Ridley Scott, The Now which comes from Peter Farrelly, plus a show which will be produced by Kris and Kendall Jenner.
Unlike Netflix, it looks like Quibi wants to focus on mobile streaming, and episodes of each show are said to only last for no longer than 10 minutes. The service will cost $4.99 a month but is also available at $7.99 if you want an ad-free experience.
Quibi is set to launch on April 6 later this year.
