Jane Lynch, Alan Tudyk Among Cast Set For Adult Swim’s ‘Team Unicorn’ Pilot From Robot Chicken Duo

Production is underwayTeam Unicorn SAFH photo by Eric Blackmon (1) on the Team Unicorn Saturday Action Fun Hour! pilot for Adult Swim. Penned by Dan Milano (Greg The Bunny) and inspired by the Team Unicorn cartoons, the pilot is described as a modern twist on Saturday morning-style cartoon/live-action hybrid shows, but for adults. It follows the adventures of the four mythical heroines who masquerade as human girls. Danger Maiden Prods’ Clare Grant and Rileah Vanderbilt executive produce and star alongside original Team Unicorn member Milynn Sarley (How I Met Your Mother) and Alison Haislip (Attack Of The Show) as both Team Unicorn and their cartoon counterparts. Jane Lynch (Glee, Hollywood Game Night) voices the villainous Dark Puba; Alan Tudyk (Suburgatory) voices her sidekick, Chummy Cherub; Tara Strong (The Fairly OddParents) voices Billy, the boy with the ability to summon Team Unicorn; and Kevin Shinick (Mad) is the show’s announcer. Robot Chicken creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich serve as executive producers for Stoopid Buddy Stoodios. Green is directing the pilot.
Danger Maiden Productions was formed in 2009 when Grant and Vanderbilt wrote/produced and starred in the viral video Saber, which won Best Action and the Audience Awards at the Lucasfilm Fan Awards. Recently they completed the trilogy, which has racked up more than 7 million views collectively. Team Unicorn first was introduced to geek and female empowerment fans in 2010 via G33K & G4M3R Girls, written and produced by its original members. The viral-video sensation captured a million views in its first week as a geek-centric parody of Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” music video. Other Team Unicorn videos include Alien Beach Crashers, SuperHarmony, A Very Zombie Holiday and For The Win.

 Geek Girls and Unicorns: They Exist!


by Rachael Berkey

There are a lot of girls to look up to on the Internet. Well. There are a lot of girls – and women – or ladies – whatever you want to call us – to look up to whether you’re online or offline. Some of my favorite geek girl role models are right online though, so that’s why I started this out saying there are a lot of girls to look up to on the Internet.

I won’t be terribly surprised if you haven’t heard of these ladies though. They’re kind of a cult hit. And you should know, the girls of Team Unicorn are more than kind of awesome.

Team Unicorn makes spoof and comedy videos of the sci-fi persuasion. They have great music, awesome costumes, famous collaborators and wicked senses of humor.

Fan of classic movies and aliens? Check out Alien Beach Crashers with Zachary Levi and Pete Wentz.

Fan of zombies? Check out A Very Zombie Holiday.

Next time the online dating scene just gets to be too much, and you need a laugh, watch superHarmony, which I think is my favorite.

If you just want to see what Team Unicorn is all about, check out their first project: G33K & G4M3R Girls. It’s a love letter to all things geek.

I started following Team Unicorn on twitter over a year ago. Co-founded by Clare Grant, Michele Boyd, Milynn Sarley, and Rileah Vanderbilt, the ladies of Team Unicorn embrace their femininity right alongside their hardcore love of video games and fan-favorite genres like science fiction, fantasy, and horror, and show by example that one can be super girly and super geeky all at the same time.

Geek Girls and Unicorns: They Exist!

The thing I love most about Team Unicorn, is the positivity they portray on the Internet. They look like they have a lot of fun doing the projects they do, making the videos they make, and participating in all aspects of entertainment culture. They go to conventions; they cosplay with a level of detail that makes my jaw drop, and everyone I’ve met in the geeky community who has met them says they are beyond sweet and nice to all their fans.

Alongside the fun of their projects and general awesomeness of all four ladies who are part of Team Unicorn, is the very real message that girls can be any thing they want to be. Pinned to the top of their website is the message “Because, like unicorns, geek girls were not supposed to exist” and the idea is one I think a lot of us forget. While the Internet has become a place where you can find all kinds of people and make all kinds of friends, there’s still a lot of judgement and a lot of attitude that reeks of “go find your own playground” when it comes to fan communities. Whenever I need a reminder that I can fall in fan with whatever I like, I find myself heading for a Team Unicorn project to raise my spirits.

Next time you’re on the look out for some entertainment that will make you let out a squeal-filled laugh at references to pop culture you maybe thought you forgot about, you should give Team Unicorn a chance.

Having first gained attention with their popular Geek & Gamer Girls video, Team Unicorn — Michele Boyd, Clare Grant, Milynn Sarley, and Rileah Vanderbilt — have produced several videos since, giving their specific, comedic take on geek culture.

Teaming with Stage Five Studios, Team Unicorn has a new video set to debut on March 4th and IGN has the debut of the trailer for it. Called “For the Win,” the music video features Team Unicorn fighting the good fight in a war against a mysterious Dr. Claw-like enemy. From the inclusion of the one ring to the familiar face to Harry Potter fans on posters in the background, look for plenty of references throughout.

Per usual for Team Unicorn, there are also several notable cameos, including Aisha Tyler, Grant Imahara and Ashley Holliday – and one other top secret cameo from a beloved figure in the music industry. Dave Yarvo, who directed “Geek & Gamer Girls”, returned to helm “For the Win.”

Check out the trailer below, along with more photos from the video.
