Netflix Sets Adult Animated Anthology Series


Tim Miller (Deadpool, upcoming untitled Terminator sequel) and David Fincher (Gone Girl, House of Cards) have teamed up for Love, Death & Robots, an animated anthology series for Netflix.

Love, Death & Robots is a collection of animated short stories that span the science-fiction, fantasy, horror and comedy genres. There will be 18 stories in all, each about 5 to 15 minutes in length.

Aimed at an adult audience, each episode is created by a different team of filmmakers from around the world. They will feature unique animation styles, from traditional 2D to photo-real 3D CGI.

Miller said, “Love, Death & Robots is my dream project, it combines my love of animation and amazing stories. Midnight movies, comics, books and magazines of fantastic fiction have inspired me for decades, but they were relegated to the fringe culture of geeks and nerds of which I was a part. I’m so fucking excited that the creative landscape has finally changed enough for adult-themed animation to become part of a larger cultural conversation.”
