FOX gave a series order for their upcoming animated comedy Universal Basic Guys/The Hoagie Bros. Its plot revolves around guys striving to find meaning in a world where they are no longer needed. The series will premiere sometime in 2024.
The series is produced by Sony Pictures Television and Fox Entertainment, with Bento Box Entertainment as the animation studio. The creators are Adam and Craig Malamut (Sports Friends, Game of Zones, The Champions) and Sony Pictures Television.
Michael Thorn, Fox’s President of Entertainment, shared his sentiments on the order in a press release. He said, “Adam and Craig are two of the boldest and most irreverent voices I know. This series’ distinct point of view could only come from a talented multi-hyphenate team that writes, animates, and voices their work like no one else. And in the tradition of the incredible creators who have been a part of our storied Animation Domination lineup, the Malamuts have an intrepid DIY mentality that has allowed them to create some of the funniest and most surprising characters we’ve seen in a long time.”
Brothers Adam and Craig Malamut have been creating animated cartoons since 2012. They are from South Jersey. The Malamut brothers are self-taught animators who do everything from writing, directing, voice acting, sound editing, and composing music. Sports Friends was Adam and Craig’s first animated program together. It aired on Yahoo Screen for two seasons.
