Sacha Baron Cohen, Greg Daniels, Mike Judge and Michael Koman Developing Animated Series For HBO & Cartoon Network

Sacha Baron Cohen, Greg Daniels and Mike Judge are set to release an animated comedy for HBO Max and Cartoon Network. The network is hoping younger audiences take a liking to Chelm: The Smartest Place on Earth. Michael Koman of Nathan For You fame is handling the writing duties on this special. Chelm will riff on classic folktales in the eponymous town according to The Hollywood Reporter. There's absurdist humor that's a trademark of the entire creative team's output.

The animated output of the streamer has only increased in the time since the first bit of the pandemic and doesn't look to be slowing down.
