'The Awesomes' site launches with trailer
TheAwesomes.com, the site for the 10-episode animated series from Seth Meyers and Mike Shoemaker debuting Aug. 1 on Hulu, just went live, and we’ve got your first look at a new trailer below.
The story revolves around the greatest superhero team in history and what happens after all the most powerful members leave. Those remaining are led by Professor Doctor Awesome (a.k.a. Prock), voiced by Meyers, who’s attempting to fill his father’s shoes.
Click here for a rundown of other characters, voiced by Taran Killam, Bill Hader, and Kenan Thompson among others.
Here’s a scene between Prock and Concierge (voiced by Emily Spivey). As Shoemaker told EW in April, “She’s the team’s assistant. Her power, sort of, is super resourcefulness. She can get what you want when you want it.” Except for new recruits, apparently.
Meyers and Shoemaker discuss the low enrollment.
The creators will be joined by select cast members, including Killam and Thompson, at a special screening and panel at Comic-Con on July 20 (Indigo Room at Hilton Bayfront, 2 p.m.).
