Chicago acrylic painter Homeless Cop made twelve commercials for Adult Swim, and now they want us to make a pilot for a TV show!
Homeless Cop is an illustrator and fine artist creating acrylic paintings and crazy cartoon TV commercials. His work has been featured on Adult Swim, and now he's written and produced his own self-titled epic stoner comedy: Homeless Cop.
Set in a futuristic city of monster and humans, it stars Nelson, a hard working nobody with an office job, and Kato, his crazy cool, cat head roommate and childhood pet. Also crashing with them is computerized life coach, Lorenzo.....
In the pilot episode, Kato gets Nelson a lottery ticket to make up for his slacking, and to everyone's surprise, they actually win! After making some new friends and enemies with the rich crowd, Nelson blows his half on bad stock tips, while Kato has cheddar stacked for future adventures!
Think Yellow Submarine meets Seinfeld, only Kato isn't a racist like Kramer. This is a show with great jokes for your ears, and visual craziness to have sex with your eyes! Do you want your mind blown all over your face? Isn't it time to get excited about your life again?
This is a show full of awesome music and talented voice actors like Greg Hollimon (Strangers With Candy) and Mancow. This is really unlike anything on TV right now!
With help from Doejo, ALL of the audio, music, and sound FX has been finished, and now we need YOUR help to make the animation magic happen! (Animators are expensive!)
We have high quality stickers, t-shirts, and prints to give away if you pitch in, and for the high rollers, we've got some special things planned.
The cartoon commercials are already on TV, now it's time for the full length show!
Let's do this!
