The adult animation series 10-Year-Old-Tom has been greenlit by HBO Max.
The series is set to be written by Steve Dildarian, creator of The Life and Times of Tim, and executive produced by Dildarian and animator Nick Weidenfeld.
The animation series follows Tom and the grown-ups in his life, who have the best intentions but struggle to set a good example for him to follow.
Resisting against being corrupted by the immoral behaviours of the adults around him, just leaving the house causes a war against the bad influences that are everywhere.
From belligerent parents, to drug dealing bus drivers, Tom tries to follow the rules and do good, but if he sets up a lemonade stand he gets sued, if he tries to play baseball and gets advised to use steroids and if he goes to the school nurse he learns about insurance fraud.
“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 Steve Dildarian.
Nick Weidenfeld commented: “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.”
10-Year-Old-Tom will be internationally distributed by ITV Studios.
