Oh happy, happy day! Today is August 19th, which means it’s the day we get our first look at the new crop of possible Amazon Prime shows, including our very first look at the very first episode of the new live-action TICK series starring Peter Serafinowicz (SHAUN OF THE DEAD) as the blue-costumed crimefighter. And by all accounts, we should be very, very excited.
The series is created and executive produced by Ben Edlund, who created the character more than 30 years ago (and who has subsequently gone on to work in film and television, most notably as a producer on SUPERNATURAL), so you know it’s in the best hands possible. The Patrick Warburton version from back in the day was awesome, but it didn’t last long enough.
Here’s hoping this TICK has legs.
Check out two exclusive clips below courtesy of Entertainment Weekly then get over to Amazon sometime today to check out the whole episode.
