A zany kid’s life is the focus of the latest new adult animated series from HBO.
From creators Steve Dildarian (The Life and Times of Tim) and Nick Weidenfeld (The Boondocks, Rick & Morty) , 10-Year-Old-Tom will explore the life of a kid who Tom grapples with being corrupted by the grownups around him.
HBO describes the series as “Bad influences seem to lurk around every corner… litigious parents, drug dealing bus drivers and band teachers who want to sleep with his mom. If he sets up a lemonade stand, he gets sued for gross negligence. If he plays baseball, he is encouraged to “dabble with roids.” And if he visits the school nurse, he is introduced to the world of insurance fraud. The grown ups in Tom’s life all mean well, but somehow just can’t manage to lead by example.”
“I’m so excited to be making this show, and couldn’t ask for better partners than HBO Max, Nick Weidenfeld and Tomorrow Studios. I can’t wait to tell these stories through the eyes of Tom, an innocent kid trying to navigate a world that seems to get crazier by the day,” said Dildarian.
“Not only is Steve insanely funny, he is one of the rare talents that can write, draw and do voices. He’s the triple threat that is the foundation of all great animated shows,” added Weidenfeld.
HBO has not announced a release date for the show so…stay tuned.
