Rooster Teeth Web Series ‘Red vs. Blue’ to Make TV Premiere on El Rey Network

Thirteen seasons of web series will be reformatted into 95 half-hour episodes

Rooster Teeth’s web series “Red vs. Blue” is coming to television for the first time, set to premiere on El Rey Network in December, the company announced Thursday.

“I’ve been wanting to carve out an animated component to El Rey’s lineup and this was just the perfect fit for the network. Red vs. Blue is cool, quirky, badass and a little off-beat,” said network founder and creator Robert Rodriguez.

“It’s a truly groundbreaking machinima series, with a strong focus on quality writing and pioneering motion capture techniques. I can’t wait for the El Rey Network audience to check out.”

Based on the award-winning Halo video game franchise, “Red vs. Blue” is a comedic action series set in the distant future that tells the story of two groups of soldiers battling for control of the least desirable piece of real estate in the known universe – a box canyon in the middle of nowhere. Premiering in 2002, “Red vs. Blue” is now entering its 14th season.

Set to premiere Dec. 5, all thirteen existing seasons of “Red vs. Blue” will be curated and formatted into half-hour episodes to run in 95 installments.
