David Fincher and Tim Miller to create animated series

By Nathaniel Dalby - Wed 9th Jan 2019 News

The acclaimed directors will team up with Netflix.

David Fincher and Tim Miller are set to collaborate for a new series of animated shorts. 

The series, currently titled Love Death & Robots, will include CGI animation and head toward “adult” subject matter. 

Tim Miller is known for his work on Deadpool and the upcoming Terminator movie, with David Fincher being famous for films like Seven, The Social Network and Alien 3

Love, Death & Robots is being produced by Netflix exclusively for the platform, with each episode lasting between 5 and 15 minutes. 

The series will reportedly cover a number of different genres, including sci-fi, horror and comedy, with animators and writers from all over the world being involved with the project. 

Whilst little is known about when the series will appear, the teaser images suggest that it’s pretty far into production. 

Miller said in a press released that he was thrilled to be working with animation. 

“(I’m) “so f**king excited that the creative landscape has finally changed enough for adult-themed animation to become part of a larger culture conversation.”

Whilst adult animation is nothing new, 3D animation has yet to take on adult themes in the same way as 2D.

The ‘90s saw an explosion of animation projects aimed at adults, including the iconic Simpsons and South Park

Love, Death & Robots will be aiming to do the same for 3D, with the added current zeitgeist of anthology shows meaning it could be a big prospect for Netflix.
