A Bakersfield family’s once-successful cracker company is up for grabs in Adult Swim’s newest animated comedy, Royal Crackers. Created by and starring Jason Ruiz (Murder Police), the half-hour series will debut Sunday, April 2 at 11 p.m. ET/PT on Adult Swim and the next day on HBO Max.
Synopsis: Royal Crackers was once the king of snacks, but the empire is crumbling. When the family patriarch, tyrannical company founder Theodore Hornsby Sr. ends up in a “super coma,” the rest of the Hornsbys will take their lack of talent and business acumen and try to make Royal Crackers the success it once was.
“Like most kids, when I was a young child, I had the stereotypical dream of making an animated television program about a mediocre cracker company and the family of desperate weirdos who run it,” said Ruiz. “In this childhood dream, I wanted it to air on linear TV and then stream on an app the following day. Thank you to Adult Swim and HBO Max for making that little pipe dream come true.”
Royal Crackers also stars Andrew Santino (Dave), Jessica St. Clair (Veep, American Housewife, The Deep Dive podcast), David Gborie (Exploding Kittens, All Fantasy Everything podcast), Emmy winner Maile Flanagan (Jakers! The Adventures of Piggley Winks, Naruto, Not Dead Yet) and Fred Tatasciore (Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal).
The first three episodes of Royal Crackers will debut on Adult Swim on April 2, with new episodes premiering weekly Sunday at 11 p.m. ET/PT. The series will also debut globally on HBO Max beginning April 3.
