Animation Magazine has a great interview with Olan Rogers, the YouTube star turned TBS series creator. Check out a quick piece below:
Animag: Can you tell us about how you launched your animated show?
Olan Rogers: The show got started back in 2006 when I made a short for YouTube, called Gary Space. Ii decided to reboot it in 2015. At the time, New Form was funding a lot of online creators’ passion projects. They were funding my friends’ shows, so I pitched them Final Space, and we ended up rebooting it. Conan O’Brien’s company came on board as producing partner, and we got the project ready to pitch, and TBS gave us the go-ahead in 2016.
