You might remember that we aired the pilot to Freek van Haagen and Brett Snelgrove’s animated web short, New Eden, a while back (if you don’t, then shame on you and you should click on this link to watch the episode now).
The show is what I imagine would happen if the TV show’s Star Trek and Red Dwarf ever got together, had a few drinks, put on some Barry White and made a baby. It follows the odd couple Hamilton and Murray as they try to survive on a hostile planet after Hamilton accidentally destroys their ship. Here’s one of their shorts that captures the dynamic between the two perfectly:
Slappin’ Slug: Lost in a cave, Murray has to save Hamilton from a slimy slug.
The show has been picking up steam in these intervening months and has been nominated in the NexTV Web Series Competition. NexTV are trying to find the best content and talent from around the Interwebs and provide the creators with the connections and exposure to get their work seen by mainstream US television/feature film decision-makers.
