From the Kickstarter page:
The rest of the world agrees it’s had enough of Americas antics and decides to destroy it, turning it into the world’s largest and only prison. We have the remnants of the America we know today, mixed with the rest of the world’s worst humans, then we fast forward a hundred years.
Our story centers around a group of American descendants, Mortimer Killjoy, Trixie Dangerous, and Omaho Conradical, a group who have survived to adulthood in the ‘Merican Wasteland, unaware of the hellscape they live in. To them, it’s just their home. Our history is the stuff of their legends. These myths have taught them how to stay alive, and set them in their ways. That is, until they take a bounty to help the settlement of Shantyton with their monster problem. This time they want to make a real go at being heroes, and helping people. Can these characters find out what the real American Spirit is all about?
At it’s core ‘Merican Wasteland is a Horror-Comedy. We wanted to make something that was inspired by both the Evil Dead franchise and years of playing post-apocalyptic games. We wanted the characters to feel like they’re out of a cartoon, but the world around them is gruesome and terrifying. The result is a show that’s going to be a whole lot of fun.
