CANNONBUSTERS, based on LeSean Thomas’ 2005 Devil’s Due comic of the same name, has been picked up by Netflix for a 12-episode animated series.  As part of the company’s push to offer more original content, Netflix announced on Wednesday that it will stream the animated series, though a premiere date has not been set.

Thomas will be directing and serving as executive producer for the series. He is also writing the scripts along with Natasha Allegri (Bee & Puppycat), Anne Toole (The Witcher), and Nilah Magruder (M.F.K.). Matt Wayne is serving as story editor.

The episodes are in production from Manga Entertainment, Nada Holdings, and anime studio Satelight.

Netflix describes the anime:

The series follows the adventures and exploits of S.A.M, a high-end, royal-class friendship droid who’s joined by a quirky, discarded maintenance robot and a brash, deadly fugitive. Together, the unlikely trio embarks on an unforgettable journey in a fantastic and dangerous world in search of S.A.M’s best friend, the heir to a powerful kingdom under siege.

Thomas has a great track record in animation. He even produced a previously funded a short pilot film for Cannonbusters using Kickstarter. Thomas Romain Space Dandy, co-director on Oban Star-Racers) served as the mechanical designer, Joe Madureira (Uncanny X-Men<) contributed to the character designs, and Bahi JD (Kids on the Slope>, Space Dandy, Ping Pong) was on board as an animator.
