EXCLUSIVE Q&A WITH CREATOR ADAM DE LA PENA
Q: What was your inspiration behind creating Outlands?
A: We’ve had the concept to do a comedy set in space (with a video games twist) for a long time ago and think we have done a good job in producing a show that’s current and presents a new twist. With the success of ‘Codemonkeys,’ which pulled in 25 million views, the team was keen to get the old gang back together and we certainly felt that there were more stories to be told in this vein and still to be explored, so we got to work… and Outlands was born.
Q: What has been the reception so far to the show?
A: Amazing. Geek &Sundry is the perfect place for the show. And fans of my other work like ‘Code Monkeys’ and ‘Your Dungeon, My Dragon’ have been really supportive.
Q: Felicia debuts in this episode, tell is a little more about her character and what it’s like working with her as a voice actor?
A: Felicia plays the character 84 – named because she was frozen in tube 84 and can’t remember her real name. She is a soldier. In a very real way she is the only member of the crew with any training. She also can kick everyone on the crew’s ass. Working with Felicia as a voice actor is awesome. She has such a great voice. It was really fun designing her character for her.
Q: Are there any other upcoming guests on the show that you can talk to us about?
A: Doug Benson (from ‘Doug Loves Movies’ and ‘Super High Me’) is in the next episode. He plays a character named Doug. Crazy right.
