The News Dudes

An animated news-comedy show that people will actually watch and understand

The Problem

It’s more important than ever for Americans to know what’s going on — really going on — in their country and around the world. But that’s never been harder. Americans no longer trust their existing news sources. Facts and real news no longer win out over lies and fake news. More and more, the public doesn’t know what to believe, what to think, or — come election time — what to do. And plenty of people are tuning out.

The Solution

The News Dudes is an animated series for people who want to understand the issues that are relevant to their lives but delivered in a way they can relate to. The brainchild of Hollywood veterans that have worked on award winning projects, the show takes a funny, irreverent approach to reporting — “Think Beavis and Butthead meets Drunk History for the current news cycle” — in order to get people to actually watch and understand the news.
