Comedy Central is developing a new series, a spinoff from freshman animated series TripTank. According to THR, duo Sean Donnelly and Alessandro Minoli are set to man the new animated/live-action hybrid comedy Jeff & Some Aliens. The show follows “Jeff (voiced by Brett Gelman) and three extraterrestrials who are sent to Earth to study the world’s most average guy to evaluate whether humanity and the planet should be destroyed.” It originally aired on the CC network as part of their show TripTank.
TripTank debuted earlier this year. The show consists of a collection of animated shorts of various styles. The series will return for season two in 2015. TripTank executive producers Alex Bulkley and Corey Campondonico are on board as producers on Jeff & Some Aliens.
Donnelly and Minoli have also sold their animated/live-action comedy The Amazing Danny. The series puts viewers inside the mind of a lovable schlub in his mid-20s.
