ToonBarn’s Marc Morrell had the honor of interviewing Matt Senreich and Breckin Meyer at New York Comic Con, prior to the Robot Chicken panel, which packed Stage 1-D at the Javits Center on Friday, October 11, 2013.
Matt Senreich, as most of you know, is the Co-Creator and Executive Producer of Robot Chicken, which is now entering its 7th season on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. With his business partner, Seth Green, they run a production company called Stoopid Monkey. In addition to Robot Chicken, Senreich has also created Titan Maximum (with Tom Root) and the currently sidelined Star Wars Detours. In 2010, Senreich received an Emmy Award for Outstanding Short-Format Animated Program.
Breckin Meyer is currently playing Jared Franklin on TNT’s Franklin & Bash, now in its 3rd season. When he’s not on the Franklin & Bash set, he continues to provide voice and writing credits for Robot Chicken. Meyer was nominated for an Emmy for his writing on “Robot Chicken: Star Wars”. Meyer has also been in several movies over the years such as Go, 54, Clueless, Road Trip, and Kate and Leopold. Meyer created the TBS Comedy Series, Men at Work, in 2012.
In this interview, Matt tells us why he likes the Chicken Nuggets they put on their DVDs and Blu-Rays as a special feature, and Breckin tells us what characters he was bound and determined to get, at all cost. We also find out who some of the guest voice actors are for Season 7, which is now in development. And Matt and Breckin let us know what they like to collect, or at least, had collected in the past.
If you liked that interview, there will be plenty more coming for other animated programs from New York Comic Con. We will also be providing a full review of the Robot Chicken panel at New York Comic Con in a separate article, coming soon.
