After the massive success of Breaking Bad, which ended its run in 2013, Bryan Cranston returns to the small screen with a new animated TV series from Crackle entitled SuperMansion. Following the first photo released back in April, the streaming service has released a new trailer, before the show debuts Thursday, October 8. Fans will get to see the first three episodes on the premiere date, with new episodes debuting every Thursday thereafter until December 17.
From the studio that brought you Robot Chicken, comes a new animated Crackle Original Series, SuperMansion. Producer and star Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) voices Titanium Rex, leader of The League of Freedom, a motley band of super heroes that has seen better days. SuperMansion also stars the voices of Seth Green, Keegan Michael Key, Jillian Bell, Chris Pine, Tucker Gilmore, Tom Root, Heidi Lynn Gardner and Zeb Wells.
Cranston also serves as executive producer, alongside Seth Green, John Harvatine IV, Eric Towner and James Degus. Matthew Senreich and Zeb Wells of Robot Chicken are creators, writers and executive producers. Guest stars include Ron Perlman, Donald Faison, Jordan Peele, Nick Kroll, Anton Yelchin, Famke Janssen, Breckin Meyer and more.
This is not Bryan Cranston's first foray into the animation/voice over world. He previously lent his voice to Family Guy and American Dad for two-episode arcs, along with brief arcs in Archer, Robot Chicken, The Simpsons and The Cleveland Show. On the big screen, he provided the voice for Vitaly in 2012's Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted, and he also voices Li, the long-lost father of Jack Black's Po in Kung Fu Panda 3.
The show joins Crackle's growing library of original shows, such as Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Chosen and Cleaners, along with original movies like this summer's Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser.
