Adult Swim is about to release the highly-anticipated second season of “The Shivering Truth.” The fantastically dark & surreal stop-motion animated series will premiere Season 2 on Sunday, May 10 at midnight (Sunday night leading into Monday) right after “Rick and Morty.” Recently, show creator, Vernon Chatman, talked to Culturally Obsessed & MUSE TV’s favorite collaborator, Rock n Roll Icon, Jesse Hughes.
Click below for the interview:
“THE SHIVERING TRUTH” is a delicately crafted, darkly surreal anthology comedy. Each episode is a miniature propulsive omnibus cluster bomb of painfully riotous daymares all dripping with the orange goo of dream logic. A series of loosely linked emotional parables about stories within tales that crawled out of the deepest caverns of your unconscious mind and became lovingly animated in breath-slapping stop motion — in other words, it is the TRUTH (squared). This season features the voices of Kate Berlant, Mike Birbiglia, Wyatt Cenac, Julia Davis, Chris Elliott, Will Forte, Josh Gad, Miranda July, Jason Mantzoukas, Kyle Mooney, Griffin Newman, Ego Nwodim, Alia Shawkat, and Tierra Whack, along with show creator and writer, Vernon Chatman. The quarter-hour animated series is directed by Chatman and Cat Solen. Executive Produced by PFFR (Chatman, Alyson Levy, and John Lee) with Solen. Co-Executive Produced by Lisa M. Thomas. The animation studio is HouseSpecial.
