Drew Carey’s Green Screen

DREW CAREY’S GREEN SCREEN, a new series on the fall WB Network schedule, is essentially WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY? with animation added behind the live-action performers. The website doesn’t have much of anything on it yet, but I’ll take this as an opportunity to say that I’m looking forward to the show. Ron Diamond’s Acme Filmworks is producing the animation, and they’ve hired a whole slew of independent animators to contribute animated segments, including the likes of Patrick Smith, Bill Plympton and Seamus Walsh and Mark Caballero. It remains to be seen how well this concept will work, but at the very least, it’ll be fun to see animation in a variety of styles and techniques on primetime television.
