    Dan Vs. is an animated sitcom created by Dan Mandel and Chris Pearson produced by Starz's Film Roman studio that currently airs on the Hub.

    Plot

    Dan is an angry, embittered man who thinks the whole world is out to get him. Whether it really is or not is certainly up for debate, but he is surely convinced that it is, and sometimes he is proven right. With the help of his best friend Chris, and sometimes Chris' wife Elise, Dan sets out to get revenge on a different thing every week, whether it be an everyday annoyance like traffic, golf and the dentist or a more convoluted adversary like George Washington, the Wolf-Man and the entire state of New Mexico.

    Origins

    Dan Vs. was originally conceived as a live-action show, but series creators Mandel and Pearson later decided to pitch it as an animated series when they realized the possible story ideas a cartoon show could give them.

    The series premiered on the Hub on January 1, 2011 as the network's first original animated series not based on an existing property.

    Characters

    • Dan
      Voiced by:
      Curtis Armstrong
      Dan has a list of all the things that have ever wronged him, and it seems to get longer every day. Whenever something makes him angry, he will not rest until he has his revenge on it, no matter what the cost. He lives in a shoddy, run-down apartment at the Casa Paradisio complex with Mr. Mumbles, a (female) cat he took home with him while getting revenge on the animal shelter across the street.
    • Chris
      Voiced by:
      Dave Foley
      Dan's best friend Chris is more laid-back and easy-going, but also a pushover. He is always on call whenever Dan needs him, even though he is often abused, injured or arrested as a result, and usually tries to talk Dan out of doing something extremely dangerous or lethal. He loves food and has an insatiable appetite.
    • Elise
      Voiced by:
      Paget Brewster
      Chris' wife Elise is secretly a covert agent for a top secret quasi-governmental organization under the codename "Dancing Shadow." She has exceptional martial arts skills and technological know-how and can be very forceful when necessary, but otherwise she is calm and level-headed. She normally stays out of whatever shenanigans Dan and Chris get up to unless her own interests are concerned.
