WWE Studios and Film Roman announced today that they have entered into a co-financing and co-production agreement to produce up to thirteen, three-minute webisodes of a new animated series entitled Camp WWE. Mike Benson of Entourage and The Bernie Mac Show will script the series.
Film Roman, the animation studio behind The Simpsons and King of the Hill, will be behind the adult comedy series about what the WWE Superstars were like as kids.
“Proving to be a nightmare for teachers and other kids, their exhausted parents pack-up their future WWE Superstars with their masks, chains, kneepads and security blankets and send them off to Camp WWE, to be transformed into model citizens by the most terrifying counselor who ever lived, Mr. McMahon,” says the synopsis.
“Film Roman has been involved with some of the most well-known and humorous animated series,” said Michael Luisi, President WWE Studios. “They are the perfect partners for WWE Studios to capture our Superstars in a truly unique and fun way.”
Dana Booton, General Manager for Film Roman said that they hope that this will begin a mutually beneficial, long-term business relationship with WWE.
“With a combination of their unique personalities, distinctive characteristics and huge built-in loyal fan base, WWE Superstars make for ideal animation subjects in CAMP WWE,” Booton said.
