'300 meets Planet of the Apes???'
Premiers tonight Animal Planet HD. Two episodes starting at 10pm est. Guess I'll have to first digest the episodes tonight to see if it's riveting graphic novel drama...or monkey poop. Doesn't look quite family friendly with some pretty graphic monkey battles/blood. Not sure who their target audience is.http://animal.discovery.com/tv/dark-...ey-city/about/
Dark Days in Monkey City blends graphic novel-style animation with live action to present an epic tale of love, treachery, betrayal and triumph. This spectacular 13-part series is based on the Smithsonian Primate Project, the longest-running study of primates in the world conducted by Wolfgang Dittus, Ph.D. Comic writers Joe Kelley and Joe Casey from Man of Action Studios, who have written for titles such as Uncanny X-Men, Justice Leage of America, The Adventures of Superman and Action Comics, have brought their writing expertise to the series along with Emmy Award winner Ian McGee. And lending his tremendous voice to the series is Welsh actor John Rhys-Davies, known best for his role in the Indiana Jones and Lord of the Rings movies.
