From the studio known for Rick and Morty comes a trailer for the new series Alpha Betas. Created by showrunners David Lee, Chris Bruno, and 3BlackDot, the new animated series comes from Starburns Industries, the production company behind Rick and Morty. Alpha Betas follows gamers who get digitized by the U.S. government to act as an elite, special ops strike-force on covert missions inside actual video games. It stars famous real-life gamer YouTubers Evan Fong (@VanossGaming), Brian Hanby (@Terroriser), Marcel Cunningham (@BasicallyIDoWrk), and Tyler Wine (@WILDCAT).
Courtesy of YouTube channel VanossGaming, where Alpha Betas will be streaming, viewers were treated to a full trailer, rife with the same adult humor Starburns Industries mastered with Rick and Morty. From sarcastic, irreverent banter to madcap and comically graphic violence played for laughs, the lead characters appear to delight in stirring up trouble, much to their government handlers’ dismay. You can watch the trailer below:
The action-packed clip features the team inhabiting several games where operations will be taking place, some of which resembling popular real-life franchises like Red Dead Redemption and Call of Duty. Alpha Betas also stars the voice talents of Chris Parnell (Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy), Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds), and Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine).
Alpha Betas carries similarities to another highly anticipated vehicle — Free Guy, the Ryan Reynolds film about a video game character finding his autonomy, which saw its theater release delayed by the coronavirus pandemic. There are few things hotter right now than video games and few things more topical than virtual participation. As these themes currently resonate with such a broad audience, Alpha Betas is poised to be a sleeper hit when it premieres on March 13.
