The IFB awarded Dou­ble Z Pro­duc­tions a pro­duc­tion loan of €150,000 in their last round of fund­ing last month.

How­ever, after a dis­as­trous space road trip, they crash land in the mid­dle of hum­drum sub­ur­bia. The lov­able duo wreaks havoc in the sub­urbs with insane inven­tions, death defy­ing stunts, invis­i­ble cats and robot supermodels.

The series is writ­ten by Zig and Zag cre­ators Cia­ran Mor­ri­son and Mick O’Hara who will also voice the char­ac­ters. The series will be pro­duced by Ronan McCabe for Dou­ble Z and David Cum­ming for Flick­er­pix. Joel Simon (Macrop­o­lis), cre­ative direc­tor at Flick­er­pix, will direct the series.
