FoxSports.com To Launch Animated Golf Series
FoxSports.com has partnered with Skadaddle Media on a new animated online golf series called "Of Course."
"Of Course" is set to debut on FoxSports.com on March 1, 2010. The series was written and produced by Skadaddle Media co-founders Todd Lieman and Jon Wank.
The Flash-based series of five-minute webisodes offers a humorous look into what four men, who are friends talk about while on the golf course. "Of Course" will have a new webisode every other Monday on FoxSports.com.
Like traditional television programs, "Of Course" will spotlight and follow story lines specifically designed for each cast member, and introduce additional characters on an impromptu or recurring basis. In the weeks between the series, Skadaddle Media will create 30-60 second video diary scenes, similar to those on reality shows.
One unusual aspect of the series is that "Of Course" is recorded live and on location during actual rounds of golf played at Eagle Falls Golf Course in Palm Springs Valley, California.
"Although Of Course is designed to be funny, controversial, and entertaining, the real charm and appeal of the series lie in true-to-life undercurrents and those blink-and-you’ll-miss-them moments of intimacy that consistently pervade the golf course experience – from the characters’ interactions and relationships with women, to their wagers, smack talk, joking, cigar smoking, and alcohol consumption," said Lieman.
