Sky1 has secured the exclusive UK rights to the popular US stop-motion animated series Glenn Martin DDS.
The primetime comedy features a voice-over cast that includes Kevin Nealon –Weeds, Anger Management– as Glenn Martin, Catherine O’Hara –For Your Consideration, Chicken Little– as Jackie Martin and Judy Greer –27 Dresses, Arrested Development– as Wendy Park.
“Glenn is the well-meaning but clueless dentist dad; wife Jackie is both cynical and supportive; teenage son Conor is entering that awkward, hormonal phase; 11-year-old Courtney is a budding CEO with a slavish personal assistant, Wendy, already in tow; and then there’s the quirky dog, Canine. Together, they leave suburbia behind as they travel America in Glenn’s toothbrush-topped mobile dental surgery, encountering the many twists and turns of life on the road.” Sky say.
The series is to launch on Thursday 11th March at 9.30pm on Sky1 HD and Sky1.
Louisa Forsyth, Senior Acquisitions Executive, Sky1 commented: “Glenn Martin DDS is a quirky, offbeat comedy series, with a completely different look. We never like to go for the safe option on Sky1HD. Everything needs to be bold and ambitious. Glenn Martin is certainly something different and will sit perfectly in our Thursday night schedule cementing Sky1 HD as the home of great comedy.”
