The Soda Parlor’s Olan Rogers’ “Final Space” cartoon picked up by TBS / Conan O’Brien

Final Space

Final Space 2018 on TBS

Deadline is reporting that TBS has green-lit Final Space, an interstellar animated comedy from Nashville-based indie filmmaker / actor / Youtuber / The Soda Parlor owner Olan Rogers, Conan O’Brien’s Conaco, and New Form in association with Turner’s Studio T, for premiere in 2018.

Olan seems pretty excited about it:

Final Space

Final Space is about Gary, an astronaut, and his pal Mooncake, who destroys planets. Just watch the fantastic 7-minute pilot:

The short has been very popular on Youtube. Olan pitched the concept to Comedy Central, TBS, FOX, FX, Youtube and Fullscreen who ALL wanted to sign on. Thom Hinkle (SVP of original programming for TBS) described the pitch saying, “Olan pitched us Final Space voicing all the characters and dancing around the conference room. It was kind of like a comedic MOON – genuinely funny and oddly heartfelt. We bought it in the room. So did other networks. We’re glad he chose us. XO.”

Olan Rogers sells apparel on his Olan Rogers Supply website and just re-opened his shop, The Soda Parlor, on 966 Woodland Street in East Nashville.

Billy Wayne Davis Live at Third Man Records

Billy Wayne Davis: Live at Third Man Records (12″ VINYL) was recorded 5/17/2016 during the Wild West Comedy Festival and is available for pre-order NOW at From Third Man Records:

“You don’t need to be from the South to understand Billy Wayne Davis’ particular brand of cutting humor, but being the Nashvillians we are (both transplanted and native), this up-and-comer is one of our favorite used-to-be local (and soon-to-go-global) stand-up comedians. Davis has gone from surprising crowds at the comedy club down the road with his “sharp-tongued-twang,” to conquering the alt comedy scene of Seattle, to hangin’ with Marc Maron, opening for Sturgill Simpson, winning over millions on Last Comic Standing, starring in a Morgan Spurlock produced documentary about Freedom, and working with the likes of Greg Giraldo, Louis CK, and Mitch Hedberg along the way.

Davis, now living in Los Angeles, headed back to Nashville while on tour last Spring and left the Blue Room audience in stitches. Third Man Records is thrilled to relive the night and share the comedic stylings Tennessee’s much-missed “small-town-smart-mouth” with the masses, adding another catalog number to what is becoming a pretty formidable collection of comedy records, including offerings from Reggie Watts, Rory Scovel, Aziz Ansari, Bill Burr, Conan O’Brien, Neil Hamburger, and more.

The Billy Wayne Davis Live at Third Man Records 12″ LP comes with a download code for a video of Davis’ complete set.”
