GRAHAM ROUMIEU: BIGFOOT NOW AN ANIMATED SERIES

Title Seq 'bright lights ouch'.jpeg

The cult favorite memoirs of Graham Roumieu’s misunderstood “King of the Forest” cryptid, BIGFOOT, are now an animated series!

“Bigfoot would like to express his thanks to his die-hard supporters, hurl a log at his non-supporters, and give a friendly (but sort-of creepy) nod-and-wink to the nice people of MONDO and VRV, which are giving this animated series a perfect home,” says creator Graham Roumieu, reading from a filthy paper retrieved from a tree’s knot hole.

This week, the first of 12 initial episodes of the animated series BIGFOOT air exclusively in the U.S. on the MONDO channel of VRV, the animation-centric streaming service. Based on Graham’s series of graphic ‘novels’, including Me Write Book: It Bigfoot Memoir and Bigfoot: I Not Dead (Plume/Penguin), additional episodes written by executive producers Roumieu and Eric Falconer (Blue Mountain State, The Mick) will premiere weekly. Starting this Sunday (10/6/19), the pilot can also be seen on MONDO’s YouTube channel.

SPECIAL THANKS TO: Creative executives Wendy Willis and Greg Franklin; Canadian production and animation teams Blue Ant Media and Solis Animation; Canada’s PSTC and the Bell Fund; executive producers Sam Hansen and Chrystal Falcioni; and of course, comedian K. Trevor Wilson as Bigfoot.

For: MONDO and VRV
