The WWE Network unleashed its upcoming shows for 2015 this week, and among a roster of eight original new shows is an animated comedy series produced with full-time nerd Seth Green and Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, the studio which Green co-owns and which produces Robot Chicken.

Camp WWE is short-form series that imagines WWE Superstars and Divas as children at a summer camp run by Mr. Vince McMahon. Camp WWE is aimed at adults—WWE and Stoopid Buddy Stoodios promise a full-body splash of “shock value, slapstick humor and social satire.”

“We’re insanely excited about this collaboration,” Green said. “WWE is one of the most heartfelt and professional organizations I’ve worked with. We’re beyond happy to help them realize this vision.”

When the series was first announced in 2013, Film Roman was attached as the production studio, and Mike Benson (Entourage, The Bernie Mac Show) as writer.

The network will also be re-airing the popular (and more kid-friendly) 1980s animated series and Saturday morning staple, Hulk Hogan’s Rock ‘N’ Wrestling.

Green and the WWE go way back. In its first season in 2005, Robot Chicken featured an educational WWE-style smackdown between Benjamin Franklin, the Wright Brothers and Mahatma Gandhi. And, in 2010, Green guest hosted WWE Raw, only to find himself in the ring during a six-man tag team match. More recently, Stoopid Buddy Studios has produced the short-form series WWE Slam City for WWE Network.

The Camp WWE concept also bears the slightest resemblance to Green’s first major gig as a child voice actor, playing a child at an all-monster summer camp run by monsters.

Camp WWE premieres in late 2015 exclusively on the WWE Network.
