HBO Max has ordered Noonan’s (working title), a ten-episode adult-animated DC series. Centered on Kite Man (voiced by Matt Oberg), Noonan’s is a spin-off of the Max Original adult-animated DC series Harley Quinn, which returns for its third season this summer.
In the upcoming series from Warner Bros. Animation, lovable loser Kite Man and his new squeeze Golden Glider moonlight as criminals to support their foolish purchase of Noonan’s, Gotham’s seediest dive bar, where everybody knows your name, but not necessarily your secret identity!
“We love the wild and fun world of ‘Harley Quinn’ so much we just had to make a spin-off and who better to center it around than the outcast Kite Man,” said Suzanna Makkos, Executive Vice President, Original Comedy and Adult Animation, HBO Max and Adult Swim.
“Justin, Patrick, and Dean have created the perfect local hangout for Gotham City’s not-so-finest at Noonan’s, where bar patrons can blow off steam after a long day of mayhem.”
Peter Girardi, Executive Vice President, Alternative Programming, Warner Bros. Animation, added: “‘Harley Quinn’ unlocked a world of hilarious possibilities with the iconic superheroes and supervillains of the DC Universe.
“Exploring this world further with our partners at HBO Max and DC is going to be a lot of fun. Plus, after getting dumped by Poison Ivy, the least we could do was give Kite Man his own show.”
The show is executive produced by Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker, Sam Register, Dean Lorey, and Kaley Cuoco. Dean Lorey serves as showrunner.
Based on the characters from DC, the show is produced by Delicious Non-Sequitur and Yes, Norman Productions in association with Warner Bros. Animation.
In Harley Quinn, the character has finally broken things off once and for all with the Joker and attempts to make it on her own as the criminal Queenpin of Gotham City. The series features Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy and a whole cast of heroes and villains, old and new, from the DC Universe.
