The Austin-based production company Rooster Teeth first rose to prominence with its long-running, critically-acclaimed web series “Red vs. Blue,” about the adventures of two groups of soldiers engaged in a civil war. Now, Rooster Teeth will launch their next series this weekend: Andrew Disney and Bradley Jackson’s “Crunch Time.” The series stars Samm Levine (“Freaks and Geeks”), Nick Rutherford (“Saturday Night Live”), Jessy Hodges (“True Blood”), Avery Monsen (“Maron”), Brent Morin (“How to Be Single”), and more.
The series follows four bored, but brilliant grad students who start making money by placing people in a lucid dream machine they’ve created. Of course, things eventually go haywire and they accidentally open up a small black hole in their college lab. Now, the team is being interrogated by the government to figure out what happened, but none of them know exactly what they did to cause the catastrophe. In order to save mankind, the government must cooperate with the scientists so they can fix the fabric of space and time. Watch an exclusive clip below, which features the gang deciding to charge people money for their recreational dream experiences.
The series premieres on Sunday, September 11th exclusively on the Rooster Teeth site with new episodes released weekly.
