There are many components about Barack Obama’s presidency that we’ll miss and one of them is his great friendship with Vice President Joe Biden. The two were like a buddy comedy in real-lif,e and soon, their partnership will have its own animated honoring.
Barry and Joe: The Animated Series comes from Adam Reid and it takes Obama’s and Biden’s friendship to an entirely different level. In the series, the two men will enlist famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson to travel back in time and right the wrongs of the past.
Reid raised funds for the series, which is described as a “bromantic comedy” and “adult animated sci-fi sitcom” via Kickstarter, and it quickly surpassed his $100,000 goal.
“My nerdy heart is exploding,” Reid said of the series’ success. Due to the success and the buzz gained so far, the potential show has added Titmouse and Conan O’Brien as executive producers. “This has been a grassroots effort, so to now be working with Conan and Titmouse is a creative dream come true. I’m hopeful we’ll find a home for the series together, and I look forward to taking all our backers and new fans on the journey with us.
