LOS ANGELES, CA – February 7, 2012 – Epic Level Entertainment, a leading producer in the world of web series and branded digital entertainment, producer of James Farr’s animated “XOMBIE” series and producers of Machinima’s hit series “Bite Me”, announced today the launch of its new original comedy series “Space Guys in Space.”
“Space Guys in Space” follows the only survivors of the human race — two guys stuck in a broken-down escape pod, drifting listlessly through the galaxy. Tormented by the ship’s unpredictable A.I., GUSS, a gorgeous hologram and forced to co-habitate until rescued or (more likely) dead, the two heroes subsist solely on a diet of pizza and beer (harvested conveniently from a wormhole inside the ship) and persevere against all obstacles, whether they be parasitic teddy bears, or space amazons in search of breeding studs.
“Space Guys in Space” releases every Tuesday on the Machinima partner channel EpicLevelTV and on Mingle Media TV. The announcement was made by John Frank Rosenblum and Cindi Rice of Epic Level Entertainment.
“Epic Level is committed to creating high-quality content for the digital age,” said John Frank Rosenblum. “It’s been exciting to see this medium grow and flourish over the past decade, and we’re proud to be a part of it.”
“Epic Level believes in telling great stories, and we embrace genre content, which the larger networks seem to shy away from,” said Cindi Rice. “We know the fantasy, sci-fi and gaming fans can tell how much we share their passions, which is why they trust us.”
The series stars Jason Marsden (“Justice League” and “Spirited Away”), Dave Levine (“Absentia”), and Nicole Pacent (“Anyone But Me”), and features Phil LaMarr (“Futurama” and “MadTV”), Ryan Welsh (“Bite Me”), and Tom Lommel (“Fear of Girls”).
