WIZARD ENTERTAINMENT’S GAREB SHAMUS ANNOUNCES THE
COMEDY CENTRAL® SCREENING OF
“THE DRAWN TOGETHER MOVIE: THE MOVIE!”
ONLY AT ANAHEIM COMIC CON
“The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie!” Screening At Anaheim Comic Con On Saturday, April 17
From 7:00-8:00 P.M. PT With Creators, Writers And Executive Producers Matt Silverstein and Dave Jeser
NEW YORK, NY (March 3, 2010) — From the warped minds of creators, writers and executive producers Matt Silverstein and Dave Jeser, comes the most reprehensible and most guilty-pleasure movie of all time…”The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie!” The first animated film based on the “Drawn Together” series will be released by COMEDY CENTRAL Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment, to be screened for the fans on Saturday, April 17 from 7:00-8:00 p.m. PT at Anaheim Comic Con.
“My family and I grew up with one of the co-creators, Dave Jeser, and have known him and his family since I was a teenager,” said Shamus, chairman and CEO, Wizard Entertainment. “Having Dave and Matt at our inaugural Anaheim Comic Con will be a treat both personally and professionally!”
“The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie!” is bigger, badder and uncensored and certainly lives up to its tainted heritage and provides the audience with a not-so-healthy heaping of what everyone has come to know and secretly love from the show. Namely, copious amounts of drunken-revelry, taboo-busting and cartoon-on-cartoon violence.
The “The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie!” screening will be held at Anaheim Comic Con on Saturday, April 17 from 7:00-X p.m. at the Anaheim Convention Center, immediately following the closing of the show floor. Join creators Silverstein and Jeser as they discuss their new film and host a Q&A with fans.
Immediately following Anaheim Comic Con, on Tuesday, April 20, “The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie!” DVD will be released nationwide by COMEDY CENTRAL Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment. The over one hour of bonus features include the following: “Anatomy of An Animated Sex Scene,” an in-depth investigation into the genesis of the soon-to-be infamous 3-D sex scene; “Re-Animating Drawn Together: From the Small Screen to The Slightly Bigger Screen,” a technical piece focusing on the production/animation end of the project; “Drawn Together: The Legacy,” a faux-serious reflection on the show’s impact and lasting cultural relevance; “Drawn Together: True Confessionals,” the actors and co-creators discuss their favorite memories from the show; “Drawn Together Minisodes,” a fond remembrance of all the loveable characters from the series hosted by the Jew Producer; “D.I.Y 3-D Glasses,” step-by-step instructions on how to create your own 3-D glasses; and deleted scenes.

About Drawn Together:
“Drawn Together” premiered on the network in October 2004 and aired for three seasons and 36 episodes. The series presented a world where cartoon characters from various genres of animation were brought together to live under one roof. The characters left their animated “reality” and entered a new world where their cartoon universes collide with a bang, combining different styles of animation and different personalities, all “drawn together.” This was COMEDY CENTRAL’s first original animated series that was drawn traditionally and in 2-D digital ink and paint animation. The eight stars/housemates represent iconic archetypes from the world of animation and include: “Captain Hero,” a not-so-moral do-gooder reminiscent of the Saturday morning TV super heroes of the 70’s; “Clara,” a 20-year-old sweet and naive fairy-tale princess; “Toot Braunstein,” a black-and-white pudgy heart throb from the 20’s; “Foxxy Love,” a sexy mystery-solving musician; “Spanky Ham,” a foul-mouthed Internet download pig; “Ling-Ling,” an adorable Asian trading card mini-monster; “Wooldoor Sockbat,” a wacky Saturday morning whatchamacallit; and “Xandir,” a strong young gay video game warrior. “The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie!” stars the incorrigible cast of the most hilarious animated reality show ever to air on basic cable. When the mystery-solving musician, Foxxy, notices she and her fellow housemates can curse without being bleeped – something they’ve never been able to do before – they realize that their show has been cancelled. Determined to get back on the air, they venture to such far-off lands as Bedrock, a Fairy Tale Village and the fantastical Make-a-Point Land, all the while outrunning their enemies who are hell bent on keeping them off the air and are prepared to use any means necessary to do so.
