“Sacha Baron Cohen’ – Set to Star in HBO Max Animated Special, with Mike Judge and Greg Daniels”

Golden Globe winner Sacha Baron Cohen has teamed up with King of the Hill creators Mike Judge and Greg Daniels to create Chelm: The Smartest Place on Earth, a family-friendly animated comedy special. Cartoon Network and HBO Max are expected to premiere the project.

About Chelm: The Smartest Place on Earth.

We just knew the HBO Max audience needed a dose of this unique brand of storytelling after hearing this pitch,” Amy Friedman, Warner Bros.’ head of kids and family programming, said in a statement (via The Hollywood Reporter). “Chelm: The Smartest Place on Earth is the ideal blend of comedy and satire, and no one does it better than Sacha, Greg, Mike, and Michael.” This one-of-a-kind project will reintroduce the nonsensical Chelmic wisdom that arose from this fictitious city of people who aren’t quite the sharpest tools in the shed.”

Chelm: The Smartest Place on Earth – Synopsis

The special “shares the absurdist humour and interpretive questioning that is a nod to Jewish intellectual traditions,” according to the synopsis, and is set in the mythical Town of Fools. “While preserving the essence and heart of the classic folktales, it will present a fresh take on the town’s silly antics and exaggerated conflicts.”

Chelm: The Smartest Place on Earth – Other details

Cohen, Judge, Daniels, Koman, and Dustin Davis serve as executive producers. It comes from Judge and Daniels’ newly formed animation company, Bandera Entertainment.
