Today, Quibi announced a series order for “Doomlands,” a new adult series from Josh O'Keefe and Look Mom! Productions, a Blue Ant Studios company that specializes in original animated programming for teens and adults. The show was created and directed by O’Keefe. “When I was first introduced to Josh O’Keefe’s concept for 'Doomlands,' I immediately loved the idea of a motley crew of characters roaming around a wasteland in a subterranean vehicle that doubles as a bar," said Josh Bowen, "Doomlands" EP and Creative Director of Look Mom! Productions. "The only thing I was disappointed in is the fact that there isn’t a bar that exists like this in real life. We couldn’t have found better partners in Quibi and can’t wait for The Oasis to roll onto screens across Canada and the U.S.”

Doomland pays homage to O’Keefe’s Australian upbringing and love for the “Ozploitation” film. In “Doomlands,” the infamous Danny Doom and aspiring bartender Lhandi sling beers across a hellish wasteland in their mobile subterranean pub: The Oasis. To survive, all the crew needs to do is not kill each other. O’Keefe began the project through a successful Kickstarter campaign. It was picked up by Look Mom! Productions and developed with Bowen. Writers and performers include Roger Bainbridge, Mark Little as a creator, and Kayla Lorette. Bowen serves as the executive producer, Stephen Sloan is the animation director and Lee Porter is supervising producer/director. Look Mom!’s slate includes “Adult Swim Canada’s Night Sweats,” “VRV’s” (USA), “Bigfoot,” and “Gary and His Demons” for Mondo Channel on VRV (USA), CBC Gem (Canada), Comedy Central (UK) and ABC Comedy (Australia). The company is also known for digital shorts such as “Don’t Feed the Humans,” “World Doctors,” “Crack-Duck” and more.
