DESCRIPTION:
(from Syfy's press release, August 2020) With the help of THE SUMMONER himself, SYFY has a new series to add to its growing late-night adult animation block, TZGZ. From Stoopid Buddy Stoodios and writer, actor and The New Yorker cartoonist Charlie Hankin, THE SUMMONER is a 2D animated series based on the short film from Hankin about Rory and his challenging roommate. Rory, in his 20's and living on his own for the first time, has found himself in a small 2-bedroom with the Summoner, a magical alien with the power to summon any object to his present location. This sounds potentially useful, but it isn't - the Summoner has a tenuous grasp of English and only summons the most useless shit. Greenlit for a straight-to-series order of 10 three-minute episodes expected to air in SYFY's TZGZ block next year, THE SUMMONER is executive produced by Seth Green, Hankin, John Harvatine IV, Matthew Senreich, Eric Towner and Chris Waters.
