YouTube Red has confirmed a new animated sitcom for 2018 called “Dallas & Robo,” which is described as a space adventure and buddy-comedy from the producers behind “Robot Chicken.” The YouTube Red series, which has an order for eight episodes, features the voices of 16-time WWE champion John Cena (“Trainwreck,” “Sisters”) and Kat Dennings (“2 Broke Girls,” “Thor”). “Dallas & Robo” centers around sassy space-trucker “Dallas” (Kat Dennings) and self-proclaimed warrior-poet ”Robo” (John Cena) who have to navigate their way around cannibal bikers, rival space truckers, and vending machine burritos as they try to make a buck in the seedy world of interplanetary big rigging.
Rounding out the voice cast are Jane Lynch, Dana Snyder, Giancarlo Esposito, Clancy Brown, Bree Williamson, Nat Faxon, Taran Killam and Milana Vayntraub.
The series will be produced by Shadowmachine (“Robot Chicken,” “BoJack Horseman”). Mike Roberts (“Final Space”) is the creator of the series and also serves as an executive producer.
