Prime Video today announced it has ordered the animated series Sausage Party: Foodtopia, based on the 2016 animated feature film, from Annapurna Television, Sony Pictures Television, Amazon Studios, and Point Grey Pictures.
Sausage Party: Foodtopia will premiere exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide in 2024.
“Film used to be the superior art form to television, and we humbly reached the pinnacle of what can be achieved with film in our remarkable opus, Sausage Party,” said Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.
“But now that film is completely dead and TV is the forever-king of entertainment, we’ve decided to continue the epic adventures of our culinary crew in the soon-to-be-legendary televised masterpiece Sausage Party: Foodtopia. It’s got all the heart, double the puns, and triple the food-on-food sex. In other words, it’s exactly what the world needs right now.”
“The original Sausage Party was an incredibly hilarious, outrageous, one-of-a-kind entry into the world of animation,” added Vernon Sanders, head of global television, Amazon Studios.
“We are thrilled to collaborate again with Seth, Evan and their team at Point Grey, as well as our partners at Annapurna Television and Sony Pictures Television, to offer a new look into this world that will be brought to life so vividly for our global Prime Video customers.”
“The original film was another irreverent comedy from the brilliant comedic minds of Seth and Evan. When Annapurna, Seth and Evan approached us to wholly reboot the project as a TV series we were thrilled to be a part of the collaboration and equally excited to have Prime Video as our partner,” said Sony Co-President Jason Clodfelter.
“We look forward to the fanfare around Sausage Party: Foodtopia which promises to be a hit.”
