"Throughout our lives, both Matt and I have equally shared two major influences: Science Fiction and cartoons. So for this show, we decided to mush those two inspirations together into a big imaginary Black Mass of Odd, and create a new property to showcase our mutual love for the genres. And thus, “The Astralnauts” were born. Set in the year 2119, long after it is discovered that ghosts and spirits are, indeed, REAL, The Astralnauts are a motley-crew of 5 of the galaxy’s most heroic and renowned ghost-hunters. Together they travel from planet to planet, capturing and containing extraterrestrial ghosts from all corners of the universe. The show will focus on the Astralnauts themselves, the alien-ghosts that they encounter, and maybe even a cybernetic Dolphin.
We just launched TheAstralnauts.com where you can now read some future-history and learn the origin of the Astralnauts, and where all-things Astralnauts will be appearing over the next couple of weeks. Just remember, these are ‘Naut your average ghostbusters...."
