If you are a sports fan (like me) then you probably know a thing or two about Bill Simmons. Since joining ESPN as a sports writer in 2001, Simmons' resume has included a regular sports column, two best-selling books, his own ESPN podcast (The B.S. Report) and a number of other achievements. Last summer, Bill and several of his talented friends and fellow writers launched Grantland.com, a website dedicated to sports and pop culture news, both insightful and hilarious.
Luckily for Powerhouse, the Grantland gang seems pretty fond of us, and invited us to create a series of short animated segments from the B.S. Report for their newest endeavor, The Grantland Channel. Our first episode of Grantland's Animated Archives premiered last Thursday-- check it out below if you haven't already!
We are extremely thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with David Jacoby and the rest of the team at Grantland/ESPN, and we are looking forward to partnering with them on more projects in the future. Keep your eye on The Grantland Channel for upcoming episodes of the Animated Archives from Powerhouse Animation!
