ZEEK the Martian Geek • TVs

ZEEK the Martian geek didn't fit in on Mars, so he and his snarky A.I. Datum traveled to Earth to study Humanity. Soon after, ZEEK finds and befriends Nurdy from Venus. When he's not hanging out in Portland, OR with the other weirdos, they all travel thru space and time in search of a geeky and nerdy education. In this episode they visit planet TV.
... (Ellen Dubin, Krista Allen & Josh Zuckerman are a few of the famous talents interested in voicing characters for this animated cartoon series. Also, Brian is striving to find producers and a network to air the episodes.)
