Crackle, Sony Pictures Entertainment’s online video network, announced today that “Issues,” a new original comedy series starring Josh Cooke (“Better with You”) will premiere on July 20, 2011. Created by Matt Oates (Wasted) and Cooke, “Issues” follows Dr. Ted (Cook), a disgruntled psychologist, who has to deal with the bizarre neuroses and psychoses of his unique clientele—who happen to be animated superheroes. Dr. Ted’s childhood dream was to offer his psychological expertise to the world’s superheroes; but when his dream comes true, the superheroes’ mindless neuroses slowly turn every session into a constant reminder of just how un-super Dr. Ted really is amongst the gods in spandex.

Eric Stonestreet (“Modern Family”), Seth Green (“Family Guy”), Eddie Kaye Thomas (American Pie), Ron Livingston (Office Space), Greg Grunberg (“Heroes”) and Rob Riggle (“The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”) lend their hilarious talents as the superheroes that get under Dr. Ted’s skin. Produced by Oates, Cooke and Clio Tegel; directed by Oates; and animated by Titmouse Studios, “Issues” is an entertaining take on the therapy driven world in which we live.

Each episode of this six-part series will feature a new superhero client complaining of their ‘issues’ to Dr. Ted:

  • Episode One – “Captain Magnificent” as played by Rob Riggle
  • Episode Two – “Side-Car” as played by Seth Green
  • Episode Three –“K-9” as played by Eric Stonestreet
  • Episode Four – “The Dark Kodiak” as played by Greg Grunberg
  • Episode Five – “The Nothing” as played by Ron Livingston
  • Episode Six – “The Incredible Flame” as played by Eddie Kaye Thomas

“Led by a cast of extremely talented comedians, we are excited for viewers to experience a unique take on the underbelly of a superhero’s life,” said Eric Berger, Executive Vice President, Digital Networks for Sony Pictures Television. “‘Issues’ is a hilarious hybrid series that combines live action and animation in a truly innovative way.”

The first of six episodes, each three to five minutes in length, will debut July 20, 2011 on Crackle.com. Crackle is also available in the UK, Canada and Australia. “Issues” will premiere simultaneously in these territories on July 20, 2011.
