Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal, a new prehistoric animated series, unleashes a special five-night event beginning Monday, October 7th at Midnight ET/PT on [adult swim]. From the creator behind the Emmy Award-winning series Samurai Jack comes a new tale that follows a caveman at the dawn of evolution as he forms an unlikely friendship with an almost extinct dinosaur.
The stunning and epic series is a painting come to life relying solely on music and graphic imagery to tell the story of two unlikely allies as they navigate through a treacherous world. After bonding over unfortunate tragedies, they seem to become each other’s only hope of survival against a common enemy.
Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal is created by Genndy Tartakovsky (Dexter’s Laboratory, Samurai Jack) with art direction from Scott Wills (The Ren & Stimpy Show, Samurai Jack) and music composition from Tyler Bates (Guardians of the Galaxy, Samurai Jack).
Tartakovsky is the Emmy-award winning creator of the hit series Dexter’s Laboratory and Samurai Jack, along with directing the original Star Wars: The Clone Wars series. The final season of Samurai Jack debuted on [adult swim] in early 2017 to critical and public praise, winning its timeslot each week.
Tartakovsky has also directed three Hotel Transylvania films for Sony Pictures Animation, which has already set a fourth installment for a December 22, 2021 release.
