As it expands beyond its gaming-oriented roots, Rooster Teeth has paid particular attention to the world of animation, from which it has mined several long-form projects. The latest in that line is Sex Swing, a ribald comedy based on characters created by the Rooster Teeth-owned Funhaus channel.
Sex Swing will follow the misadventures of its titular band, a rock outfit that lives a hard-partying lifestyle. The series is stylistically similar to the show Metalocalypse, with Rooster Teeth looking to grab a piece of the adult animation boom led by Adult Swim.
Like many other Rooster Teeth projects, Sex Swing will feature several of the studio’s staff members and frequent collaborators in its principal roles. The show’s voice actors include Bruce Greene, James Willems, Joel Rubin, Lawrence Sonntag, and Adam Kovic, and the original Sex Swing shorts were released through Funhaus, which was formed by the old Inside Gaming crew back in 2015. The Funhaus gang also serves as the writing team for Sex Swing.
The first episode of Sex Swing will arrive on February 18th. Rooster Teeth FIRST members, who pay at least $4.99 per month for a suite of premium perks, will be the first viewers who will get to say their favorite studio’s latest animated project.
