Creator, 'Robot Chicken'

Seth Green still acts plenty, but it’s his tireless hustle as creator, exec producer and head writer (titles he shares with Matthew Senreich) of the Emmy- and Annie-winning “Robot Chicken” that fills his schedule. Since its 2005 premiere, the stop-motion, pop-culture parody has become the top-rated original show on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim, attracting between 800,000 and 1.5 million from the 18-34 demo.

“It’s a 15-minute, ad-sponsored cable show at 11:30 on Sunday nights,” says Green. “We really didn’t have any anticipation of it being successful, let alone culturally connective. We just continue to make something that makes us all laugh.”

For each of the 20 episodes produced in an 11-month season, Green performs dozens of voices (plus roles on “Family Guy,” “American Dad” and “Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy”).

As if that wasn’t enough to keep him busy, Green spent July co-hosting a series of roller-skate parties to promote the DVD release of “Robot Chicken’s” Annie-winning “Star Wars Episode II” (which he also directed).

Along with Senreich and Tom Root, Green will next exec produce the Adult Swim stop-motion series “Titan Maximum,” an action-packed spoof about a dysfunctional squadron of pilots whose spaceships form a giant robot.
