Syfy has acquired eight episodes of animated “Dallas and Robo,” featuring the voices of John Cena and Kat Dennings (“2 Broke Girls”). The series is described as a space-trucking comedy following the mis-adventures of foul-mouthed ex-stock car racer Dallas (Dennings) and her ass-kickin’ artificially intelligent good buddy, Robo (Cena). Together, they 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.
“Dallas and Robo” debuts on Syfy’s TZGZ late-night animation block beginning on Saturday, August 8 at 12 a.m. ET. From ShadowMachine (“Final Space,” “BoJack Horseman”) and YouTube Originals, the series is executive produced by series creator Mike Roberts and showrunners Matt Mariska and Andy Sipes, alongside Cena. Alex Bulkley and Corey Campodonico from ShadowMachine also executive produce.
