You know how on our podcast or on Twitter we keep mentioning “things we’re not allowed to talk about yet”? But that we’ll shout them to the skies once we can? Well, the good news is we can now tell you that WE HAVE AN AWESOME NEW SHOW CALLED LEARNINGTOWN, THAT WILL BE ON FELICIA DAY’S BRAND-SPANKING NEW YOUTUBE CHANNEL, GEEK & SUNDRY!
We hear you shouting out: so what’s it about? Who else is in it? Well…we’re not allowed to talk about it yet. LOL—no…from the Geek & Sundry LearningTown press release:
“Nerd music duo Paul and Storm bring their harmonies and smartly offbeat humor to this new comedy musical. The learning curve is steep when the two are tasked with reviving the ﬂagging educational show of their childhoods in the face of villainous hipsters, ghosts who give bad advice, and ﬂammable puppets—lots and lots of ﬂammable puppets.”
Us? Taking over a children’s show? You’re right: it practically writes itself! But we’ve gotta look like we’re earning our paychecks, so we’ve been busy over the past few months “working” with our head writer Josh A. Cagan to put it together, under the watchful eye of producer Kim Evey.
We’re not allowed to tell you much beyond that, but we CAN tell you the following two facts:
- LearningTown won’t debut until late 2012. Boooooo!
- The show will co-star Maurissa Tancharoen (Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, Dollhouse, Mortal Kombat: Legacy, The Guild). Yaaaaaay!
We promise to tell you LOTS more about it between now and the end of the year. (We’re certain you’ll be totally sick of hearing us talk about it soon enough) In the meantime, you can enjoy Geek & Sundry’s nerdtastic slate of shows that includes The Guild (Season 5), Felicia’s The Flog, Wil Wheaton’s TableTop, Sword and Laser with Veronica Belmont and Tom Merritt, motion comics from Dark Horse, and the hysterical Written By a Kid. Thusly:
We are as excited about this as two little children who are particularly excited, and we can’t wait for you all to (eventually) see it! For now, the best thing you can do is to subscribe to the Geek & Sundry YouTube channel and enjoy their awesome lineup. And then wait. Patiently.
