Llama Cop
In the live-action comedy "Llama Cop," a by-the-book detective, Riggs Bauer (Walter Masterson of TV's "The Girl's Guide to Depravity"), is partnered with unpredictable rookie, Buddy Callahan. Buddy breaks all the rules, doesn't listen to orders, and happens to be a live llama. Can this mismatched pair join forces to bring down the crime syndicate that may be responsible for the death of Detective Bauer's partner? Created by Maximilian Clark and Masterson, "Llama Cop" is directed by Charlie Zwick and features Antonio D. Charity ("Showtime's "House of Lies"), Vanessa Lengies ("Mixology," "Glee"), Lauren Francesca (YouTube sensation "IWantMyLauren"), Sunny Maybry ("The Client List") and others.

Tvoovies
Created by award winning LA-based producers Cosmic Toast Studios in partnership with Starz Digital Media, "Tvoovies" is a pop culture animated mash-up where hit television series collide with blockbuster films. Whip-smart, tongue-in-cheek and often outrageous, "Tvoovies" parodies the biggest titles in entertainment, and episodes include "The Walking Ted," "Zero Dark 30 Rock," and "The Hangover of Thrones." The original concept for "Tvoovies" was inspired by casual conversations on the popular social news site Reddit.
