Finalist in Facebook Partnership


TBS' "Storyville" is a digital animated series that features world famous comedians, musicians, and artists telling true life stories about their wild adventures. With each new episode, the show unveils real stories of its celebrity guests, bringing them to life with animation that visualizes a series of incredible, hilarious, and at times ridiculous tales that could only come from some of pop culture's most interesting people.


Storyville uses animation to make its celebrity guests both the narrators of their stories and the stars. The series gives viewers a look into lives and personalities of its many guests, creating a quick, entertaining series that's also a chance for fans to get to know their idols a little better. With episodes available on the TBS app and on its Facebook page, it's easy for viewers to catch "Storyville" stories and share, react, or make commentary on them with others to bring them into the "Storyville" fold.


"Storyville" is a creative use of celebrity that illustrates that famous people are still people – just interesting, talented ones. With over 39K following on Facebook, "Storyville" gives viewers a light and funny look behind the curtain of fame, all with a cartoonish sensibility that makes each of its stories all the more interesting and surreal.
