Happy Wheels is coming to the small screen. Deadline reports go90 is launching an animated series based on the popular video game.
From Machinima and Bunim/Murray Productions, the dark comedy takes place in a seemingly idyllic town overrun by horrific violence. The video game, which debuted in 2010, has been downloaded more than a billion times.
Happy Wheels premieres on November 15th on the digital platform.
Welcome to Happy Wheels, the most dangerous community in the world. Early on, all seems tranquil and on the up-and-up: a dad teaching his boy to ride a bike, picnickers enjoying an adult beverage, a man enjoying a snack on a park bench. But things are about to get ugly — fast. That kid on the bicycle? Spike fodder. Other folks? Turned to red goo by falling speakers, helpful cops, exploding bounce houses, even the town’s welcome sign. Sense a pattern here?
Suffice it so say, Happy Wheels people get mangled in horrific ways. In an effort to reduce the bloodshed, five locals form a safety committee, with predictably epic-fail results. Voices are provided by a clutch of social media/online personalities, including three Minecraft YouTubers (ask your kids) and the co-hosts of Machinima’s ETC.”
