TV Writer and Animator Alumni Team Up for Comedy Central Series

Ryan Levine & Nye Warburton (l to r): Ryan Levin (CAS, ’98) & Nye Warburton (C’97)

And here’s another example of alumni who knew each other at Penn and continued working together to create some great projects…

Ryan Levin (C ’98, Without a Net, Theater Arts, Penn Players) and Nye Warburton (C ’97, Without a Net) have co-created a new animated Comedy Central web series for Benny: Escaped Convict.

This 4-episode web series will air on Comedy Central’s Atom TV on June 23 (2 am!), and then launch on June 26 on Comedy Central’s new website here.

The series follows Benny’s adventures as he tries to elude the fuzz and avoid going back to the slammer.

Per Ryan, “Our goal is to continue Benny as a web series, with the hope of eventually developing it into a TV series. The future of Benny rides on the success of the webisodes, so please, check em out and pass them along.”

Be sure to listen for another Penn alum, Vanessa Mizzone (C’99), who voices a variety of characters in the series.

What People Are Saying

"Because of Penntertainment, I got scouted for Nickelodeon. I had such a great time talking with them. I may be a resource for a show on science, travel, geography, gender etc. Thanks for all you do. It really makes a difference."
