It’s time for a new show from “Adventure Time” creator Pendleton Ward! Netflix has ordered “The Midnight Gospel,” a new adult animated series from Ward and comedian and podcaster Duncan Trussell.
Ward and Trussell will serve as co-creators and executive producers on the show, which follows Clancy, “a spacecaster with a malfunctioning multiverse simulator” who “leaves the comfort of his home to interview beings living in dying worlds,” according to the streaming service.
The eight-episode series is “set in a fantastical universe using interview clips from Duncan Trussell’s podcast, ‘Duncan Trussell Family Hour.”
Sounds interesting, but I’ll be honest, I’ve never found an animated series which uses the “found audio” conceit to truly work. But, given the pedigree of Pendleton Ward’s work, I will, if nothing else, give this a spin on Netflix.
