According to a new Deadline.com report, animation studio Bento Box Entertainment recently signed a non-exclusive deal with Comedy Central. Under the deal, the studio will develop and produce short-form animated content for various digital platforms. The animation studio is known for their work on Bob’s Burgers, Brickleberry, and Legends of Chamberlain Heights (the latter two having found their home at Comedy Central.)
Bento Box creative director Ben Jones will helm the short-form projects. The shorts will launch on Comedy Central’s pages on digital platforms such as Youtube and Facebook Watch. The deal also gives the animation studio first rights to animating and executive production of the short-form projects that will be adapted into a linear series.
