Oracle of Outer Space introduces 5 bizarre radio hosts operating the last remaining AM radio station

Oracle of Outer Space
Did video kill the radio star? Not on the last AM radio station broadcasting to the galaxy - Although they may crash into Earth!
Today I came across a photo on Joanie Brosas' Instagram where she cosplayed Arcana Thrice from the animated pilot episode of The Oracle of Outer Space. She's promoting the made-for-tv pilot episode at the Los Angeles Comic Con which includes a cast pannel discussion and showing the episode's rough-cut.

Oracle of Outer Space - Joanie Brosas As Arcana Thrice Not familiar with the title, I dug around to discover I missed both the kickstarter for The Oracle of Outer Space's TV show pilot episode - and the Indiegogo campaign. Both campaigns reached their funding goals, generating about $20,000 for the pilot.

Its created in the style of Adult Swim programming, from creator Carl King and animator Lance Myers. I love scifi, animation, and Adult Swim's insanity. This pilot episode seems to embrace all of these, particularly the craziness of some of today's animated shorts. I love this idea!

As a fan of radio in general and late-70's tv show WKRP In Cincinnati, this is a melding of a lot of things that appeal to me. I also love the cast they've chosen. From Dweezil Zappa to cosplayers Joanie Brosas and LeeAnna Vamp - what a great mix of voice talent! Although the crowd funding took place in 2017, Joanie Brosas's promotion and panel discussion at LA Comic Con leads me to believe the pilot is still being shopped around.

From the Kickstarter page:
The Oracle of Outer Space is an Adult Swim-style animated TV show pilot so-far starring Dweezil Zappa, Mike Keneally, LeeAnna Vamp, Jon Schnepp (Metalocalypse & Space Ghost Coast To Coast), Clarke Wolfe, Joanie Brosas, and Ebony Amber -- and created and scored by Carl King. Written by Carl King + HisCheapMoves + Level Nivelo, and animated by Lance Myers (Lead Animator of A Scanner Darkly).
