News: Team Behind It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia Developing Animated Slasher Series Spikeface

Rooster Teeth has greenlit the animated dark comedy series Spikeface from RCG, the production shingle of Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

"The series follows “one of the world’s great horror icons,” who slaughters a couple at a roadside motel — before he discovers they have a baby girl and decides to raise the orphan as his own. That pisses off his roommates, who also are iconic horror villains."

McElhenney will serve as executive producer on the eight-episode original series, which is based upon an idea from writers and executive producers Geoff Barbanell and Itai Grunfeld. 3 Arts Entertainment will executive produce, along with Rooster Teeth co-founders Matt Hullum and Burnie Burns.

Spikeface will be produced in-house by Rooster Teeth Animation and will premiere in 2019 on Rooster Teeth’s subscription-streaming service, First, which is priced starting at $4.99 monthly.
