BIG JUMP ENTERTAINMENT TEAMS WITH STARBURNS INDUSTRIES FOR EPIC SPACE OPERA “STARSHIP GOLDFISH”
You better make some damn room, as the studio that brought you RICK AND MORTY has joined intergalactic forces with BIG JUMP ENTERTAINMENT and creator JASON WEIGHT to launch the next big adult animation “STARSHIP GOLDFISH”
Sincerely, The Aforementioned Parties.
Written and created by Jason Weight, STARSHIP GOLDFISH tells the story of Ghostworth, the long-suffering robotic custodian of the Starship Goldfish, as he navigates the horrible choices of amnesiac space captain and possibly last human, Sam, and finds himself destined for the ill-fitting mantle of ‘saviour of the galaxy’. To date, STARSHIP GOLDFISH’s pilot has amassed over 1 million YouTube channel views, has over 60k social media subscribers, is a Catalyst Award Winner, and has received $90,000 in crowd source funding based on the fans immediate engagement with the show.
“We immediately saw Jason’s perseverance, passion and incredible comedic storytelling ability in the pilot. A robot who is constantly deflecting a man-child hell bent on all types of destruction, while the duo is immersed in a space centred, buddy road comedy!? Yah we want in,” said Cory Morrison, EVP Development. “When we approached Starburns, who we had worked with on “Animals”, the support and enthusiasm was instantaneous. There may have been beers and hugging at the first meeting.”
“We are very excited to take on this project because the art style is something we’ve never tackled before. We are drawn to the absurd humor and characters that Jason brings to the table,” said James Fino, Executive Producer and Partner for Starburns Industries
