TVWriter™’s pal Travis Richey, of COMMUNITY’s “The Inspector” fame has informed us that he and his cohorts (not mere “minions” cuz Travis
is a much better guy to hang with than a certain LB is a firm believer in creative collaboration unlike some people we know) have begun pre-production of their hit web sitcom, ROBOT, NINJA & GAY GUY, for its second season, which will hit YouTube in 2015.
The series, created by Richey, along with Curtiss Frisle, is written by Eric Loya and Season 2 will be directed by Travis Oates and is a production of Siv-Art Productions. In RN&GG, a self-proclaimed “gay guy” struggles to live with his two unusual roommates: a curious robot and a gentle ninja. In Season 1 Ryan Churchill played “Robot,” and for Season 2, Bryan Lovell (Hollywood Dram Role, General Hospital) will assume the role. A talented musician and composer, Brian Giovanni, who composed the score and theme song for the show, stars as “Ninja.” “Gay Guy” is played by Travis Richey, (Sons of Tucson, The Event, and Pretty Little Liars, as well as recurring as Inspector Spacetime in Community.
Season 2 will begin with three special bonus themed dream episodes, ”Robot’s Film Noir”, directed by Brian Finifter, and “Gay Guy’s Musical”, directed by Bryn Woznicki, which have already been shot and are in post-production, and “Ninja’s Japanese Monster Movie”, which will be in the style of Godzilla and helmed by Jared Hoy. The post-production on the two in-the-can episodes and the budget to shoot the Ninja episode are being partially financed by a crowd-funding campaign launching October 23 on Indiegogo.com.
Taking everything they learned from Season 1, the producers of “Robot, Ninja & Gay Guy” plan to up the production values greatly on Season 2, and will expand the scope of the series, to include more characters, settings, and development of the tantalizing story introduced in Season 1.
Additionally, some of the characters introduced in Season 1 will be seen again, including Mr. Furper, who is played by Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Nicholas Brendon. Other guest-stars appearing in Season 2 include: Kelly Mantle (RuPaul’s Drag Race), comic book legend and “Wolverine” creator Len Wein, Star Trek: The Original Series writer David Gerrold, who wrote “The Trouble With Tribbles”, and others yet to be announced.
With over 20,000 Subscribers and videos from RNGG’s first season having been viewed nearly 1 million times, the series’ channel has become an entertaining hub for young adults who appreciate the show’s innovation and humor. The total video views on the channel (including production vlogs and other scripted comedy videos) are over 3.4 million and counting.
