Rick and Morty co-creator Dan Harmon’s new TV series has confirmed some big details, including the title.
The new ancient Greece-set Fox animated comedy show will be called Krapopolis and will focus on a flawed family of humans, gods and monsters as they try to run one of the world’s first cities without killing each other.
Krapopolis will also serve as the first-ever animated show to be curated entirely on the Blockchain, with Fox and animation studio Bento Box Entertainment launching a marketplace to sell digital goods, including NFTs, art, GIFs and tokens for exclusive social experiences.
The series was first announced back in February, with Fox president of entertainment Michael Thorn saying at the time (via Deadline): “Leave it to Dan Harmon to turn the mythos of early Greek civilization into remarkably sharp commentary on today’s politics, celebrity and pop culture.
“This project is an incredibly irreverent family comedy as told by one of the town’s most inventive storytellers.
“We are proud to be partnered with Dan on this series, which strengthens our hold on the animation space and, as we continue to build Fox Entertainment, marks an important first step for us with our first fully-owned scripted property.”
The news comes ahead of the fifth season premiere of Rick and Morty, which is finally due in the US and UK next month.
