PSYCHOTOWN ON FX
Commissioned by US cable channel FX Network as part of its late night animated block Cake, Psychotown is the scaled-up version of the original series commissioned by Mike Judge (creator of Beavis and Butthead).
Psychotown is a blackly satirical animated series where the postmodern, post-truth world plays out at a domestic level. Sure, Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un are into nuclear war, but what about your room-mate? He’s just as obsessed - and he’s more dangerous, because you have to live with him.
“Speaks nihilism in a graceful yet garish deadpan” - David Buchanan, random college English lecturer, ‘Nihilism and Modernity’
