Comics2Film has learned that Adult Swim on Cartoon Network has placed an initial order for 10 episodes of 'Drinky Crow', based on Tony Millionaire's acclaimed comic.
A pilot episode of the proposed series was developed by Millionaire and animation producer Eric Kaplan last year. It aired as part of a competition which pitted dozens of pilots against each other, with the fans voting on their favorites.
We've been told that reaction to the pilot has been strong and pre-production has commenced on the series, which could begin airing later this year.
We'll have further details as they become available. For now, enjoy Drinky's berserker attack in drunken defense of a perceived crypto-critter in this clip from last summer's pilot...
