DOOMLANDS: Roku's First-Ever Original Adult Animated Series Set To Debut This Week; Check Out The Trailer

Mad Max meets Cheers in The Roku Channel's first-ever original animated series, Doomlands, which is set to premiere on the streaming service this Friday. Check out the trailer for the upcoming series.

Cord-cutters have a new adult animated series to look forward to with the upcoming debut of Doomlands. This Friday, January 28, The Roku Channel will premiere its first-ever adult animated series, which is the brainchild of Josh O'Keefe.

Doomlands takes us to a post-apocalyptic future and follows the adventures of the infamous Danny Doom and aspiring bartender, Lhandi, as they travel the hellish wasteland in their mobile pub: The Oasis. As one would expect, the series promises all sorts of bloody chaos and adult-oriented humor as the two attempt to survive the dangerous wasteland.

“‘DOOMLANDS is a post-apocalyptic animated comedy soaked in dust, beer and blood. It's an homage to Ozploitation and Sci-Fi cinema, and after many years in development, I'm so stoked for it to debut on The Roku Channel.” said creator Josh O’Keefe. 

Doomlands originally began as a university project in 2014 and ultimately became a short film thanks to a crowd-funded campaign. It was then picked up by Look Mom Productions! and developed into a series with executive producer Josh Bowen on board.

“DOOMLANDS is ‘Mad Max’ meets ‘Cheers’ in the Mos Eisley Cantina, which is a major part of what originally attracted us to the concept," explained Executive producer and managing director of Look Mom! Productions Josh Bowen. "This project was produced almost entirely throughout the pandemic. In fact, Josh literally produced this show from my mom's basement with the help of her home cooked meals. The final product is a testament to the resilience and adaptability of our team, and we’re so excited that it’s now a Roku Original.”

Check out the trailer for the series below and get ready for the hilarious hijinks that awaits when Doomlands premieres this Friday.

Doomlands will be available to stream for free exclusively on The Roku Channel in the U.S., and the U.K. starting Friday, January 28.
