“I love animation, and I love working in animation doing cartoon voices. And now with this recap show, I plan to become the Barbara Walters of animation interview shows,” said Richter.
“We’re excited to join forces with Caffeine on this new series,” said Michael Thorn, President of Entertainment, Fox Entertainment. “Animation Domination enjoys one of television’s most loyal followings, with its cultural influence reaching far beyond the linear world and deep into the digital universe.
