Cell Mates

Posted by Dash Shaw on September 10

This is an idea I have for an animated television series titled Cell Mates. It stars the members of the Frat Pack: Will Ferrell, Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson and Luke Wilson. In all of the Frat Pack films they go on a rampage of immoral, deviant behavior and by the end of the movie they revert back to their wives/offices/society.

In the alternate timeline of this cartoon, they never quit their spree and eventually they are imprisoned. The show details their suffering, regrets, and prison adventures. Here is a mock-up of the opening title sequence:

And here are bonus drawings of Will Ferrell dancing with his tattoo:

    Every television show needs a winning theme song. I suggest Empty Nest (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wb1OGZ6GVT0)

    In the season finale, Steve Carell makes a cameo appearance as the crying janitor.

    Both excellent ideas, ZS.
