Justin Roiland, creator of Rick and Morty and purveyor of higth-brow potty humor, is working on a new series. Titled Gloop World, the show will air on Quibi, an upcoming mobile-focused video platform that will also host a reboot of the classic Legends of the Hidden Temple.
Gloop World is a claymation project that follows Bob Roundy and Funzy, who are blob roommates living in the titular world. Roiland says that the project has been “a dream of (his) for almost seven years,” and that he’s excited to make clay animation with “an imperfect approach, where you can see the animators in the world.”
Quibi is designed for short form content that will be watched mostly on mobile devices. It’s a start-up based in Hollywood, and will also feature a horror series written by Steven Spielberg (Spielberg After Dark,) a reality courtroom show starring Chrissy Teigen (Chrissy’s Court,) and a revival of Reno 911. The name is short for “quick bites.”
