"An alien planet far far away is on the brink of economic crisis so they turn to their only hope, ABDUCTING local Alabama weed dealer, Eugene Blak."

Eugene Blak is a down on his luck, college drop out but the one thing he does have going for him is that he sells the best weed strain in Alabama called "Planet Blak." When the royal alien children of the Planet Deskora get wind of his amazing weed strain they abduct him and bring him back to their planet where their parents, the king and queen, ask him to sell his weed strain across the galaxy to save their planet from an economic downfall and anarchy.

PLANET BLAK is a wacky, animated stoner comedy that takes you on a half-hour wild ride through space and also drops in a little social commentary for you to chew on. This comedy will fuse together a few of our favorite things: animation, outer space, marijuana, black people, and hip-hop.

There are more and more projects on television and in film that have marijuana as a theme but the majority of these projects only center white people while so many Black and brown people in our country are locked up on marijuana charges. "Nearly 80% of people in federal prison and almost 60% of people in state prison for drug offenses are Black or Latino despite equal usage rates with whites." PLANET BLAK will constantly be a beacon calling for awareness to the fact that MARIJUANA MUST BE DECRIMINALIZED and every criminal record dealing with marijuana MUST BE EXPUNGED.

ON 4/20, the official 4:20 trailer will drop and with your help, we want to raise $10,000 to independently make our complete half hour animated pilot and release it on the internet for all to enjoy! Hopefully from there we will be able to pitch our series to the network of our choice.

There have been very few majority Black cast animated series on television and even less for adults! (Eddie Murphy's "The PJ's" (1999-2001), "The Boondocks" (2005-2014), "Black Dynamite" (2011-2015)
Help US make the next great one by becoming a patron today!

Creators, Eric Abbenante, a former autism tutor, and Niles Abston, a former social worker are Los Angeles based stand up comedians who aspire to be the next Matt and Trey (creators of South Park). They created this series with several of their talented stand up comedian friends in the trailer including: Lila Hart, Malcolm Hatchett, Arthur Hamilton, Rachel Wolfson, Mina Q, Mike Menendez, Kalea McNeill, Roger Lopez, Caesar Lizardo and many more to come in the pilot.

In 2017, together Niles and Eric created the digital comedy network "Channel 310" that now boasts seven different shows on Youtube. The shows vary from talk show, variety, unscripted, and sketch. Planet Blak is the Channel 310 duo's first stab at an animated series. Once you help us fund this project, Planet Blak will be our 8th show on Channel 310.

The main character, Eugene Blak is voiced and based off of show creator Niles Abston.
