This morning, Comedy Central debuted Biatches a new animated webseries made exclusively for release on their digital platform CC:Studios, YouTube, and the network’s mobile app. They made available the entire first season which consists of six shorts.
The show, co-created by Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov (MTV’s Faking It), is about junior high school bad girls Dana and Julia, who are forced into a special education program after being kicked out of their reuglar school. Bento Box is handling animation duties under the direction of veteran Simpsons board artist and Good Vibes co-creator Bradley Ableson.
Biatches was announced last November as part of Comedy Central’s initiative to build up a roster of shareable content for their various digital distribution channels. It joins the site’s existing digital cartoon content, which includes stand-up/animation mash-ups called Humanimations and In Security, a webseries about museum security guards. Other Viacom-owned properties are also making the shift to providing digital-only content. Last month, Nickelodeon launched its first online-only animated series Welcome to the Wayne.
