It's created by John Gemberling and Curtis Gwinn, and will debut in the fall. "Superjail" is about the universe's most violent prison that is run by Warden, shrouded in mystery. The series, created by Christy Karacas, Stephen Warbrick and Ben Gruber, will premiere next year.
"Lucy," set in San Francisco and created by Loren Bouchard, will debut in the summer, and the "Robot Chicken: Star Wars" special is set for June 17.
