On July 14th, I broke the news here (thanks to Tara Strong) that the Drawn Together movie was “coming out soon.”
Thanks to a fresh press release from Comedy Central, we now have a new official title for the movie The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie! and an official release date — March 2010.
Here are more details from the press release:
“‘Drawn Together’s’ reunion with COMEDY CENTRAL is like marrying an old ex-girlfriend,” said show creators Matt Silverstein and Dave Jeser. “I mean, are we doing this because we love each other and are destined to be together? Or is it because neither one of us could do any better? As is often the case, it’s probably both.”
“Matt and Dave are a creatively talented duo with a twisted sensibility that is completely uninhibited and admirable,” said Lauren Corrao, head of original programming and development for Comedy Central. “Without the constraints of producing for basic cable, this movie will showcase their chops the way fans of the show have been waiting for.”
“The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie!” stars the incorrigible cast of the most hilarious animated reality show ever to air on basic cable. When the mystery-solving musician, Foxxy, notices she and her fellow housemates can curse without being bleeped — something they’ve never been able to do before — they realize that their show has been cancelled. Determined to get back on the air, they venture to such far-off lands as Bedrock, a Fairy Tale Village and the fantastical Make-a-Point Land, all the while outrunning their enemies who are hell bent on keeping them off the air and are prepared to use any means necessary to do so.
“The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie!” is bigger, badder and uncensored and certainly lives up to its tainted heritage and provides the audience with a not-so-healthy heaping of what everyone has come to know and secretly love from the show. Namely, copious amounts of drunken-revelry, taboo-busting and cartoon-on-cartoon violence.
A “The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie!” panel will be held at Comic-Con in San Diego on Thursday, July 23 from 7:00-8:00 p.m. PT in room 6BCF, with guests Silverstein, Jeser and stars Cree Summer (Foxxy Love, “Transformers: Animated”), James Arnold Taylor (Wooldoor Sockbat/The Jew Producer; “Star Wars: The Clone Wars”), Abbey McBride (Ling-Ling), Jess Harnell (Captain Hero) and Tara Strong (Toot Braunstein and Princess Clara).
