FANTASTIC news, everyone. The revelation that Arnold Schwarzenegger fathered a child with the family maid has has torpedoed the development of Schwarzenegger’s “Governator” cartoon, the planned TV/comic series with Stan Lee and one of the most derivative, sh*tty-looking cartoon series ever proposed.
The producers of the cartoon casting Schwarzenegger as himself — a superhero who must balance crime fighting with family duties — said Friday that they have pulled the plug on the planned series.
“In light of recent events, A Squared Entertainment, POW, Stan Lee Comics, and Archie Comics, have halted production,” A Squared said in a statement referring to the various entities that were developing and producing “The Governator” and publishing a comic book based on the series. The producers had been selling broadcast rights to the series before the scandal broke, but no episodes have yet been shown on television. [LA Times]
