https://poorlydrawnlines.com/ (Poorly Drawn Lines) creator Reza Farazmand thought he knew what to expect when adapting his popular webcomic as an animated TV show. After all, he had seen a https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ytZ5DByr4w (documentary) about how South Park gets made.
"That gave me the sense that making an animated show would be this wild process with late nights and a bunch of fast food," he says. "But it was really more of a slow, gradual process with a lot of emailing and phone calls ... It was a lot slower than I thought, but it was also an extremely gratifying and fun process."
You can watch what came of that process, the Poorly Drawn Lines TV show, on https://www.hulu.com/series/poorly-drawn-lines-a442804a-4dab-413f-9ea5-c2129d800136 (FX on Hulu).
