TBS and DumbDumb Debut Latest Comedy Short Featuring the All-New Ford Fusion

Today TBS and DumbDumb, in partnership with Electus, are premiering their newest branded content as part of the companies' industry-exclusive comedy short collaboration. "Red Rover" starring Ford's all-new Fusion sedan is now available at TBS.com/RedRover, as well as across TBS mobile web and the TBS YouTube Channel.

"Red Rover" features Dan O'Brien (Whitney) as Greg, Ford Fusion owner; Alison Becker (Parks and Recreation, The Other Guys) as Dr. Rebecca Webster; and George Basil (College Humor Originals) as Dr. Laird Gutman. The short highlights what can happen when a normal guy, nerds and freaks cross paths in Death Valley, and save the Mars rover from a disaster... all thanks to the features of the Ford Fusion.

Launching across multiple TBS Digital platforms, the short will also receive heavy tune-in promotion during Saturday airings for The Big Bang Theory and select prime and weekend movies on TBS, as well as digital promotion across the Turner Digital Network, which includes TBS.com. All of the promotions will drive viewers to the Web site to watch the content in its entirety.
