[krvod url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qiima3T2Z9M]Bill Schultz, the Emmy-winning producer of The Simpsons, is our guest on The Event Horizon this week. His new project is Jimmy Stones, a new half hour animated adult fantasy comedy. The upcoming episode of The Event Horizon with Bill Schultzdebutsexclusively on SCIFI.radio, this Saturday, November 15, 2014, at 9:00 p.m., Pacific.
Jimmy Stones is about a man who has had so much go wrong with his life that he has decided to actively give up. The trouble is that the talking animals of New York aren’t going to let him off the hook. From a cranky squirrel with rabies, to a pair of proselytizing pidgeons, to a suicidal horse, Jimmy’s world is populated by unconventional and unexpected characters who just won’t leave him in peace.
Bill Schultz and fellow Emmy-winning writer and producer James Manos, jr., creator of the hit cable series Dexter, took their idea for Jimmy Stones to every major comedy network there is, but each needed it to be changed to fit their brand. That’s why they’re taking the road-less-traveled and crowd-funding the show themselves.
This episode of The Event Horizon airs again on Sunday, November 15, 2014 at 4 p.m. Pacific, and at various other times throughout the coming week. Consult our What’s On Whenpage for showtimes in your area.
