The workplace puppet comedy will launch on the FailArmy FAST channel and dovetails the success of TMB’s original programming slate that includes Show Us Your Pets, Your Pranks our Show and World’s Most Expensive Fails
LOS ANGELES, Jan. 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — TMB, the leading community-driven entertainment company, today announced the premiere of its new in-house original comedy series, Womp & Co. The series was developed by TMB’s Executive Producer, Jovenshire (Smosh Games, Stuff of Legends) and Executive Produced by the Emmy Award-winning VP of TMB’s Digital Studio, Dee Austin Robertson (The Happytime Murders). The show premieres this Friday, January 27th at 10 PM ET on TMB’s FailArmy streaming channel – a hub for hysterical fail videos. The launch comes on the heels of FailArmy’s highest viewership month ever as the comedy brand with over 17 million TikTok followers continues to grow its global audience.
Womp & Co. will follow a crew of zany puppet characters as they comically navigate workplace hijinks and scenarios ranging from stolen lunches, unnecessary meetings, and team-building exercises gone awry, all while working to create, cut, and curate their favorite form of entertainment: humans falling flat on their face. In each episode, the mythical creatures (“Womps”) of Womp & Co. will attempt to avoid the Wompocalypse by satiating their kind with premium user-generated fail videos.
“Womp & Co. is unlike anything we’ve ever done before and I’m thrilled to bring an all-new and original comedy series to FailArmy,” said Producer and VP of TMB Digital Studio Dee Austin Robertson. “Jovenshire and I developed this comedic sitcom around our mutual love of puppets and the ability to represent the absurdities of a human office on a much smaller, fuzzier scale.”
Shot in FailArmy’s Los Angeles studio, the 6-episode first season will feature 10+ puppets as the series’ main characters. The leads are voiced and performed by master puppeteers Kelsey Brady (Mystery Science Theater 3000) and Danny Montooth (Disney Puppeteer) and led by Puppet Captain Genevieve Flati (Henson’s Puppet Up!).
“FailArmy is so much more than fail videos and the launch of Womp & Co. further amplifies who we are as a brand and where we are headed,” said Darren Wadyko, VP of Development, at TMB. “As a leader in CTV and FAST, we’re honored to collaborate with talented creatives in this new endeavor and look forward to connecting to our audience by marrying nostalgia with a modern touch and a lot of humor.”
