The Transient Life of Animators

by Ryan McKee, posted May 27th 2010 3:06PM
If a television writer's credits read 'The Sarah Silverman Program,' 'Dora the Explorer' and 'Breaking Bad,' that person would be the most versatile anomaly in entertainment history. However, for many animators, that kind of content diversity among the shows they work on is a just part of the job.

Newlyweds Mike and Anna Hollingsworth are both animators. Over their collective fifteen years working in the industry, they have worked on shows for HBO, Disney, MTV, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central and Cartoon Network. Anna just worked on the first season of 'The Ricky Gervais Show,' then immediately jumped to the children's game show, 'BrainSurge,' and will return for the second season of 'Gervais.'

HBO Sets Premiere Date for 'The Life and Times of Tim'

by Rebecca Paiement, posted Dec 16th 2009 11:15AM
On Feb. 19, The HBO animated comedy 'The Life and Times of Tim' will kick off its second season. Variety reports that the series, created by Steve Dildarian, has been off the air since Nov. 2008 but is currently producing 10 new episodes.

Dildarian voices Tim, a twenty something New Yorker who gets in and out of awkward work and personal situations, often with his girlfriend, Amy (Mary Jane Otto). Each half hour show consists of two, fifteen minute segments, and has included guest voices by the likes of Bob Saget and Jeff Garlin. Well-meaning Tim can't seem to avoid loose canon New Yorkers such as his boss at Omnicorp who, in one episode, requests that Tim pretend to be Hispanic. Tim also tries to help muggers, accidentally louses up the mailman's life and spars with an elderly man on the bus.
