In the trailer of the adult animated sci-fi sitcom, Obama and Biden travel back in time after the inauguration of the 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump, with the mission to alter the course of history and save the future.
Barry and Joe, as they are affectionately called in the series, are guided through history’s ups and downs by present day astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. Tyson appears in the form of an augmented reality that only they can see.
The post announcing the project does not describe what format the final product would look like, but Reed says he wants to produce a pilot episode starring Jordan Peele as Obama, Chris Pratt as Biden, and Hayden Planetarium director Neil DeGrasse Tyson as himself, serving as the crime-fighting team’s guide.
Reid says the show is meant for people who “intensely miss” the 44th president and his vice president.
“[It’s] an adult animated sci-fi sitcom. A parody of Quantum Leap and countless other 80’s TV classics,” Reid writes.
“Every episode will follow Barack and Joe as they leap into the past and change a part of history,” he adds. “[It’s for] people who miss Obama and Biden as much as we do.”
“Anyone on the left side of the political spectrum who isn’t afraid to question everything they know about America.”
As for funding the project, Reid says the pilot episodes will cost $100,000 for “storyboards, recording, animation and sound design”, which production is seeking to raise by end of August via a Kickstarter page running through the end of August. So far, $42,748.00 has been raised with eleven days to go.
